Illustration by Explode Creative

Being an obsessively creative fella ever since I was a boy, I’m finally opeing my illustration skills to commissions. My 7+ years as a graphic designer will ensure you get a snazzy result. If you don’t find the info you’re looking for here, never hesitate to contact me.

Among other things:

  • Digital concept art
  • Digital painting commissions
  • Book illustration
  • I get the feeling I’ve forgotten something. Got an idea?

Digital Concept Art

If you’re a video game, movie set or interior designer, chances are you wish you could get that idea out of your mind’s eye and onto the screen. Here’s where I come in. I’ll work with you closely to achieve the result you’re after.

I work directly in Photoshop, Illustrator, Premiere and After Effects to produce my concept illustrations. I’m excellent at working alongside your team (if you have one).

Why Digital Concept Art?

Get that perfect idea out of your mind’s eye and into the screen to show your team or prospective clients.

How much does it cost?

Pricing: $60 per hour. Most concept art requires a separate quote.

What’s Involved?

You’ll provide me with a general outline of what you’re after. I’ll ask a few followup questions, send a quote through and get cracking on your project.

Final file can be provided in any format you choose. Usually that means a PDF, web optimized JPEG or Photoshop files.

Digital Painting Commissions

Got an idea in your mind for a subject or concept? I’m now taking commissions for digital painting. My painting style is normally a pseudo-realistic half-cartoony look – but I’m also a design chameleon and can do it up in any style you choose.

Adding to that, my 7+ years in the graphic design field have added photo composition, manipulation and color correction into the mix. Illustration is my true passion so get ready for a mind-blowing result!

Why Digital Painting Commissions?

Heck, if you’re already interested in commissioning me for a digital painting, chances are you’ve got your own reasons. Enough said!

How much does it cost?

Pricing: $80 per hour. Rate decreases on a sliding scale as more hours are included.

What’s Involved?

You’ll provide me with the idea of the subject and situation you want painted. Also, it wouldn’t hurt to shoot me a link to an image which has the sort of style you’re after.

I’ll go ahead and send you an outlined sketch for your approval, get the painting done and supply it to you in PDF format, PSD format and web optimized JPEG. We’ll likely go through some revisions.

Book Illustrations

Book illustrations are best known for appearing in graphic novels, comics, fantasy novels, and childrens’ books. If you’ve got a story to tell, get in touch and we’ll work together to get the visual effect you’re after.

Why Book Illustration?

Add interest and awesomeness to your story or comic with custom illustrations.

How much does it cost?

Pricing: $80 per hour. Rate decreases on a sliding scale as more hours are included.

What’s Involved?

You’ll provide me with a copy of your story in Word Document (don’t worry – it’s taken in full confidentiality!). You may also advise on which events in the story you want illustrated, and what sort of style of illustration you have in mind.

I’ll go ahead and send you an outlined sketch for each illustration for your approval, get the paintings done and supply them to you in PDF format, PSD format and web optimized JPEG. I can even add them into your book or advise the printers on how they should appear.
