FAQ's and How it works...
Because sitting for an original portrait can take hours, the artist, Jozef, works
from a photograph or photograghs. We then illustrate your commission using
the photographs as a guide.
How do we get started?
Send us the photograph that you like to have a portrait of in a jpg or tiff format. We then start sketching. It is more cost efficient for you to provide us with an existing photograph. It has been our experience that open and honest discussion at the outset is key to creating portraits that will satisfy your expectations for many generations to come.
What to expect?
Once we have received your commission we like to speak with the client to get a brief profile of our subject and your direction. So please be sure to leave your contact information on the "Commission Inquiry" form.
From here we compose a pencil or line sketch for your approval, this will be sent to you electronically (PDF) so be sure to leave your e-mail address on the commission form. Upon receipt of your approval (e-mail) we then proceed with your final work of art.
How long will it take?
Please count on a minimum of two weeks for delivery of the "Directional Proof" and Pending on your approval another two weeks.
Additional two weeks for duplicates or Giclee's.
Please note that we require an initial deposit of 50% of the total cost at the time of order, with the balance payable on completion.
RUSH or DEMAND 48 hour portrait can be processed with a surcharge pending studio work load.
