Welcome to the exciting world of themovingpencil.com – the illustration and cartooning extravaganza! If you can think of it I can illustrate it, so let your imagination run wild. I have created anything from children’s book illustrations and humorous caricatures, to graphic design jobs like wedding announcements, local band flyers, Logos and posters. No job is too large or too small.
Custom illustrations can make perfect gifts for birthdays, weddings, graduations, nurseries, roasts, man caves, and any holiday. Do you have a favorite sports team or athlete? There is no better way to show your team spirit than to show off an custom illustration on your man cave wall. Please feel free to e-mail your idea and specifications of the illustration you would like.
Example: I would like an illustration of Bill Murray caddying for the Dali Lama at Bushwood Country Club. I will allow you artistic freedom. I want it 14” x 11”, full color, matted and framed. Thanks.
Frequently Asked Questions
Do you charge by the hour?
No. I don’t price by the hour. Pricing is determined on an individual project basis. I almost always find a way to accommodate any client’s budget. In many cases it’s simply a matter of a client saying “I have this much to work with, what can I get?” and we can take it from there.
How do you determine how much my quote will be?
Quotes are based on a variety of factors including: Complexity of Illustration, Final Art (B&W or Color), Usage, Circulation (when applicable), Deadlines, and Quantities.
Do I have to pay the full amount up front?
You do not have to pay the full quoted amount for the illustration up front. Once the illustration is completed, a sample image will be sent to you via e-mail. Once the final payment is received I will ship out the original artwork.
How long does a typical illustration take?
The average turnaround time for a spot illustration assignment from sketches to final art is 7 to 14 days. The more notice the better.
Contact me and describe your idea, include a lot of details (scenes, color vs. B&W, quantity of images etc.), and I’ll get a quote right out.
Keep in mind, the more details that you supply, the better the illustration will be. Prices are always negotiable.
