Commission an illustration

Since 2015, I have drawn hundreds of custom illustrations for people, including childhood homes, family portraits, beloved pets, and more.

This information is for personal commissions. If you're looking to discuss an editorial, product, or other illustration project please email me at to discuss.

How it works

  • Timing: Ideally allow 2 - 3 weeks, but I can sometimes accomodate tighter turnarounds (a rush fee may apply). November and December book up quickly!
  • Subjects: I can draw from photos, google streetview, or we can create a scene together. You don't need the exact photo.
  • Medium: Illustrations are black ink on paper with grey tones/shadows for depth. Colour is extra and done in watercolour.
  • Sizing: 5x7, 8x10, or 11x14.
  • Revisions: You get a review sketch first to make sure things are looking right. Multiple requested revisions may incur an additional fee.
  • Framing: Framed illustrations are pick-up only. Pricing below.
  • Payment: Payment is upon completion. I may require a 50% deposit for larger projects.
  • Shipping/pick-up: Pick-up is from Sherbourne/Carlton in Toronto or unframed illustrations can be mailed. Regular mail is included, but tracking is $10 extra.


Pricing is flexible depending on subject matter, amount of detail and colour. Starting prices include black ink, grey tones/shadows, and a single colour highlight. Additional colour highlights can be added for a fee and full colour pricing is detailed below. Single subject illustrations will be lower (e.g., one person or pet).

If you have any questions, please email to discuss!

  • 5x7: $75 +tax (single building or two people)
    • Full colour add $50
  • 8x10: $125 +tax (single building or two people)
    • Full colour add $75
  • 11x14: $225 +tax (single building or four people)
    • Full colour add $100

Additional costs

Additional costs will be clearly discussed with you and are often in the range of $10 to $75.

These may include adding extra pets or people (usually $15 - $25); additional colour highlights (usually $10 - $20); and scenes with lots of detail (usually $25 - $50). Note that the smaller 5x7 size does not afford too many additional elements.

Reduced pricing

To keep my art accessible, I take one commission per month at 30% off my normal rate. This is a no questions asked scenario, so if this is you, don't hestiate to email me.
