Lovely little Laurel as Black Canary.


Paintings of cats and dogs as pop-culture icons at Geeky Pet!

Geeky Pet began from a Christmas Card of my two cats dressed up in costume. Then came requests for sketches of pets in costume. From there I launched Geeky Pet - paintings of cats and dogs dressed as characters from the geek universe!

PRINTS: I ship from Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Orders ship within a week from purchase.

All prints are sold unframed. They are digital prints on 60 pound cover stock.

SHIPPING: All prints are shipped flat in sturdy cardboard mailers through Canada Post as REGULAR LETTER MAIL. They do not have tracking numbers.

US - it should arrive in 4-10 business days.
Canada - it should arrive in 2-10 business days.
International - it should arrive in 6-10 business days.

EXPEDITED SHIPPING: If you need the prints faster or would prefer a method with a tracking number please let me know. I will quote you and am willing to make a new PayPal invoice for the additional cost.

CUSTOMS forms will be filled out with "art print - Cost $5.00." Hopefully they clear customs easily, but I can't guarantee that there won't be any delays or additional payments due.

COMMISSIONS: Original paintings will be safely packaged and shipped with tracking and insurance. I price shipping on these at $20 and will refund any major overpayments.

Deposits on custom commissions are NON-REFUNDABLE once the sketch has begun.

PENCIL CASES: These ship directly from Art of Where. These cases are made upon order and take 2-6 business days to complete before shipping.

Here is Art of Where's shipping policy:

Art of Where is located in Canada, but we ship from both Canada and the USA. This means that for most drop ship orders shipping to Canada and the USA will never encounter duties or customs fees. This is due to the fact that we handle all importing ourselves.

Currently, US and international orders are shipped on Tuesdays and Fridays from within the USA. Orders to US customers generally take 2-6 business days once shipped within the USA. International orders generally take 6-10 business days but may be delayed by the customs of your country. All orders shipped domestically within the US will have a tracking number that can be tracked with USPS. International orders will not have a tracking number due to the fact that they are untraceable once they leave the USA.

Orders for Canadian customers normally ship within 2-8 business days of the order is placed. Shipping to Eastern Provinces takes about 3-4 business days and shipping to Western provinces can take 4-7 business days.

International or wholesale orders may be subject to customs fees or duties of your country. Unfortunately, ArtofWhere does not cover these fees so please contact us if you have concerns regarding your order.

We work Monday to Friday and are closed on weekends and all Canadian holidays. All production and shipping times are in business days and do not include days that we closed.

Once your order has been shipped, it is in the care of the courier and / or postal service. We are not liable for any errors made by these services, but we are always happy to do everything in our power to work with you and the postal system to correct orders.

Once you have received your parcel, please open it with care. We cannot be liable for any items damaged during the opening of your parcel.
