Commissioning a piece of Chumleys Art
What does Richard do as an illustrator and artist?
He is commissioned to draw and paint everything and anything for people. He works for clients who just want a cartoon or painting of their prized family member, whether of their ever faithful canine, moggy or their treasured little kiddies. He also works with corporate clients in all forms of illustration commissions from logos to corporate branding to architectural illustration. He helps them to visualise and develop ideas to help promote them or their ideas and designs through paintings. This can cover things like creative consulting, (sketching out ideas for ad campaigns and consultation), painting someone's portrait (straight or caricature), creating conceptual art to bring a visual to someone's written ideas, painting original art, posters, publicity material and billboards -
Working with clients?
His clients approach him with their ideas and aims of the project; This is the feasibility stage discussing concepts and scope of work -
How long does it take to finish a commission?
He is constantly in the midst of one project or another so his availability is on a case by case basis. You can use the Contact Me page of this site or just email or call him with as detailed of a request as you can muster, and he can try to work something out. He works collaboratively, as he does with engineers, architects and many other clients so if you're curious about a more detailed look into working with him, please get in touch.
He works quickly in between hisy full-
With digital paintings, cartoons and fine art commissions, he agrees the time to deliver the painting and final cost with clients before starting the artwork. In terms of corporate illustrations, once his clients are happy with the feasibility concept and before he actually draws, he firstly provides a Creative Brief and quotation which includes the agreed scope of works and his costs. It generally outlines project overview and background information, sets out objectives, agrees the target audience and key message, scheduled programme, and finally his terms and conditions.
Rates & Quotations?
Rates in any creative profession are highly variable on the description of the project, the size, the client, and the turnaround time. He doesn’t say this to be nebulous or vague, but because no two projects are the same. Please get in touch with him as specific of a request as you can and he'll provide a quote. Please use the Contact Me form, email at email@example.com or phone him on (01773) 748737.
Many commissions are paid by cash with a small deposit being made before he starts the work -
