general πŸƒ

  • Submitting an Order Form does not guarantee acceptance. I reserve the right to refuse a commission.

  • Prices are subject to change. Clients will not be billed nor reimbursed the difference if the cost of an item changes during a project's duration.

  • The client understands that they are paying for the non-refundable time and expertise of an artist. Completed commissions are not eligible for refund.

communication and completed commission delivery πŸƒ

  • Discussions regarding ongoing projects and other business-related inquiries are conducted entirely over email.

  • Unless communication with a client is lost, I will only ever reach out over email. I do not utilize social media direct messages for business communications due to poor organization and lack of reliability.

  • Emails are handled on business days [Monday through Friday]. I am unavailable to respond on weekends. I may require a business day or two to respond.

  • Files for finished artwork are sent to the client via their chosen contact email.

  • Clients may request edits [such as colour adjustments, artist errors and markings] after the artwork is completed. Edits that would greatly impact the integrity of the lineart may be subject to a fee.

PUBLISHING πŸƒ

  • Completed client artwork may be utilized for my own advertising and self promotion purposes. All completed client works are published to my online galleries and social media.

  • Commercial use licenses are non-transferable and are exclusive to the original client.
