Pricing below is based on one subject and pictures emailed from the client. Please choose digital images with good detail. Make sure the position of the subject is the one that you would like created. I prefer you send mutliple images, so I can choose the highest quality one and so I can get an idea of the personality of the subject. For a fee, I can meet with you and the subject and take reference photos. This fee would be in addition to the prices below.
Prices below are for standard sizes and one subject only. Different sizes can be accommodated. Each additional subject is an extra $50. If you have an questions or different ideas, please let me know.

Care for your pencil drawing:
- Your drawing has not been sprayed with fixative. Do not touch or rub the drawing, this will cause it to smudge. (Spraying will change the coloring of the drawing, resulting in a darker image, that’s why I don’t use it)
- If not having the drawing professionally framed, choose a frame with a mat. This will prevent the drawing from touching the glass and result in a much nicer outcome.
- If you are framing yourself, turn over the mat, line up the drawing with the mat (the opening should be a smidge smaller than the drawing), and using artist’s tape or masking tape, tape the drawing to the mat all the way around. This will prevent wrinkling or slipping of the drawing. Try to put half or less of the tape on the drawing as opposed to the mat.
- Don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns you have!
