The Essentials Plus
Customize a one-of-a-kind, hand-painted illustration for you or someone you love. Each piece is made by hand and customized to your requests. Custom illustrations make a thoughtful gift for anniversaries, weddings, baby showers, new homes, holidays, and more. Or ... treat yo' self!
What's included: Top and bottom banner with simple background (skyline, house, simple trees) OR elaborate/detailed background only
Size: Hand-painted on standard 8x10 watercolor paper
Paper + Ink: Drawn and painted with watercolor & pigment ink on premium cold press watercolor paper (300 grams / 140 lb., acid-free, long-life paper).
Packaging: Cello sleeve, tied with ribbon and shipped in a flat mailer for safe arrival / signed by artist on front and stamped on back
Other details: If your illustration does not have a full background, I leave at least a ½ inch white boarder around the edges to accommodate different sized frames. If your illustration does have a full background, there will be minimal to no border.
How it works: We work together!
Step 1: When you are ready to create, purchase the listing!
Step 2: Complete the form at purchase to share on all of the details of your illustration (colors, outfits, style, etc) and gather your photos! Have questions about the process? Check out our FAQs page.
Step 3: I will email you with a sketch to get your approval and any revisions (up to 4 revisions to keep the process timely, more edits may be purchased for a fee of $15 per revision).
Step 4: Once approved, I will add paint and ink and send you a watermarked, low-resolution scanned preview and ship the original piece via USPS priority shipping. If you purchased a high-resolution digital version of your illustration you will receive that instead.
Step 5: Do a happy dance because you just got your one-of-a-kind illustration! Hang it up if it is yours or gift it to its new recipient (illustrations come sweetly packaged and wrapped in baker’s twine, making them perfect for gift giving)!
