SAMPLE ARTWORK:  Below are three levels of artwork from a surprise drawing for a young artist — who LOVES Ninjas! — submitted by his proud mom. First Dennis sent the suggested layout in pencil, as you can see here…  First the pencil rough…. Then the ink version… Then final color. We hear he liked it! Send us your photos today!Ninja rough layoutNinja BWNinja mailerNinja guy Color Below we see a Suprise Gift of a Retirement Drawing for a surgeon who worked with a local university.

Surprise Gifts, unique gift ideas they will LOVE




Surprise Gifts, caricatures from photos — always a big hit!  Here is the usual process for getting a drawing done from a photograph. First the client and I discuss what is needed, via email or telephone or in person, and get a rough idea of what it will look like and likely will cost. Then I get a photograph to draw from, like this one:drawings_headshot2   Then I work up a pencil layout that seems fun, send that over for your review. In this case, it was this fellow out hunting deer… drawings_treeline     When that is approved  we ask prepayment, since this is custom art. So we receive a credit card payment, or wait for a check, get that resolved.   Then I can go to the final ink and color stage, which is the most fun of course. Finally we get the drawing to the client (maybe YOU!), via email, US Postal Service or other method. Here’s the final art on this project: drawings_treeline_full Fun surprise gifts — caricature drawings from your photos! An amusing, highly personal gift your friend will never throw away.
