About

The Muse of a Humble Art Teacher

Surprisingly enough the shop Flyworks started as a teaching tool. I, Jeff Moore, am the owner of the shop Flyworks. The catch is I am also an art teacher at the high school level as my main profession. As a teacher trying to inspire students, one of the most common things I hear from student artist looking to break into the field is something like, "Do you actually know of anyone who can make a living just by doing art?" Students say this straight to me as if I'm invisible!

When I got tired of referring said students to friends and local artists I decided it would be easier to sell my own work on the side when I'm not teaching. That way when asked who I knew that could actually make art then make money from it, right then and there I could show them my online shop! Thus Flyworks was born.

Flyworks specializes in fine art prints from graphite drawings and also custom drawings from photographs. Most of my fine art prints are portraits of celebrities though I have done some automotive drawings. The custom drawings from photographs are also mostly portraits but I can work with pretty much any subject.

Almost all of my celebrity portrait work is done as in-class examples where I show students the steps for creating a drawing from a reference. I start by letting the students choose the picture to work from then I work along with the class so they can see not only the step by step process but also the time it takes to produce good quality work. Once I have a finished piece I put prints up for sale here. I have found that this gives the students a much closer to home look at how I create and sell art. They see a physical start to finish process - from blank paper to a sale, which helps prove that selling art isn't a magical career that no one really has.

The other half of the shop is designed for creating custom drawings from a photograph. I do this all on my own time and don't usually show the process in any of my classes though it's pretty much the same as drawing a celebrity portrait. The custom drawings are further proof that art can be made and sold too!

From this it can be derived that this shop was built to inspire artists and help support a seasoned one!

Cheers!

Returns and exchanges
If you are not fully satisfied with your piece I will refund Prints in full.
Custom drawings I can refund half of the price you paid.
Payment
PayPal is my preferred method of payment, though I will accept credit cards as well. For custom orders:
There is a %20 rush order fee if you need a piece in your hands any less than a 2 weeks from the purchase date of a piece 108 square inches or less and any less than 4 weeks from the purchase date of a piece more than 108 square inches. This ensures you will receive quality work and your piece is not rushed.
In addition. Any piece more that 108 square inches I will require at least half the payment upfront as a form of business contract.
Shipping
All pieces ship flat.
For a discount of shipping for a Fine Art Print I am willing and able to ship pieces rolled. This is not an option for original pieces and custom work.
