Purchasing Information

If you wish to contact me either to commission an original illustration or to buy an existing one, please see my contact information listed at the bottom of every page on this web site. I am open to negotiation in both cases. However, I do have minimum fees and purchase prices, below which there is no longer room for compromise. Included with a fee for a commissioned illustration, I expect a contract and/or purchase order, a reasonable amount of time to do research for the job, and an equally reasonable amount of time to do sketches and the finished piece. I will provide ideas for an illustration assignment when requested, sketches, an invoice, and a professionally done finished piece that will meet your deadline. Many of the illustrations I have produced are also available for second rights use. That is, they have already been used other places, but can be used again at a considerably lower price.


Most of the pieces you've seen on these pages or on my promotional sheets or cards, are for sale. If you come across something you'd like to own, please contact me and I'm sure we can come to an agreement that satisfies us both. If you want a certain piece of artwork framed first, I can have that done also. Framing, shipping, and insurance charges will be added onto the price of the illustration. Under most circumstances I will not be selling you the copyright along with the original illustration. If you wish to own the copyright to a particular piece, assuming I have control of the copyright, there will be a substantial additional charge. In addition to being able to pay me using a personal check or bank check, you can now use the services of PayPal to pay me safely and securely.

Prints are available for most of my artwork on 8.5" by 11" glossy photographic paper for $15.00. Prints are open edition (unnumbered) and signed. Shipping is included in price. Just e-mail me to place an order.

I'm very happy to sign collectible gaming cards that are sent through the mail. Send no more than 20 cards at a time. Please include a self-addressed, stamped envelope to make getting them back to you as effortless as possible, and if you're mailing from another country, please include enough postage to cover the return trip. This usually entails purchasing two postal coupons. Allow 1-4 weeks for cards to be returned. I can't be responsible for cards lost or damaged through the mail.

I also have some signed artists' proofs left of the four cards I did for Magic: the Gathering. I sell them for $5.00 each, including postage. You can send me an order by e-mail or regular mail.
