So I’m coming to a hard realization the art market is hit and miss with sales. I’ve got a couple sales lined up and hope to pick up more, but sales have been very slow of late. What I really need is patrons/sponsors. Grants would be great too. I’m applying for one in December. Being realistic though I’m unlikely to get it my first try however. So here is what I am proposing.
Sponsor for a week
You will get 5 sketches a day
2 sketches a day and one digital bust
Sponsor for a month
You will get 4 sketches a day AND two digital busts AND a full digital painting
5 sketches a day AND one digital bust AND one real media painting shipped to you
If you are interested in sponsoring/acting as a patron for a longer period, message me and we can work out an agreement. The sketches you will provide me a general theme (ie your character, cats, cute animals) but nothing specific- these are digital only BUT you may pay extra to have the originals shipped to you if you wish for $5 plus cost of postage (the $5 covers mailing supplies/cost of gas to the post). The busts you may provide a pet or character and a mood/setting, but no getting extremely fussy about details ok? Ie don’t send me a page of exactly how you want it posed and every last detail. The digital or real media full painting you CAN be more specific about detail and give me a long winded description if you like. You are paying more so you get more. These prices are at a discount to my usual rates. If you have something super specific in mind, it’s best to commission me directly. Rates can be found here:
I will also accept some trades for commissions for items I want. Message me for my wish list of items I am looking to acquire (the old list is outdated) . Most aren’t on sites which let me use public wish lists, but I can link you to the items. Amazon is the only one I can link straight to a wishlist as far as possible trades go. Just ignore the fact it lists paperbacks and hardcovers for books. I can read kindle books on my iPad so kindle editions are fine when working out a trade.
Any takers? With the holidays coming up this could be a perfect way to get low cost personalized gifts for your loved ones!
