HOW DO I COMMISSION A MURAL, CANVAS OR PIECE OF ARTWORK?
Thomas always aims for complete customer satisfaction by providing the perfect design for your project. The key to achieving this is preparation. Please browse my website, books and other visual sources to get a rough idea of what you would like. Stuck for ideas? Please feel free to contact Thomas to talk about your project, without any obligation. He has a very good imagination and is able to structure little pieces of information into a detailed plan. Alternatively, just point me in the right direction, sit back and let my creativity run free as I create something beautiful for you.
After contacting Thomas, he will work closely with you discussing any ideas, concepts or images you may want to use to ensure you are happy every step of the way during the design process. Once a design is agreed, Thomas will then arrange with you to start the painting process.
WHAT IS THE PROCESS OF COMMISSIONING A MURAL?
If required, a site visit is helpful for Thomas to examine the space and to encourage his imagination to firm up ideas and concepts. A site visit is also a great opportunity to discuss ideas with the client and advise on associated issues such as any building works and surrounding surface preparation. Protecting your surrounding surfaces is vital to Thomas and he will provide protection for all types of surfaces. A site visit is a free service to all locals areas but with a nominal charge to cover expenses for prospective clients who are further afield.
Following the site visit and discussions, Thomas will be happy to provide a sketched design as a guide to eventual costs. A rough estimate price can be given at this stage. Upon approval, a more detailed design to scale can be drawn if required, before agreeing on a final price. A breakdown of costs will be given at this point for your convenience. By this stage a financial commitment would be required in the form of an initial payment to allow the commission to be put into the order book and materials to be ordered.
HOW MUCH DOES A MURAL, CANVAS OR PIECE OF ARTWORK COST?
Each commissioned piece is priced differently, taking into consideration factors such as complexity of the design, distance or postage and packaging, materials used and time needed to complete the piece. Please remember that all of my artwork is bespoke and that an exact price can only be given once the final design has been agreed.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO COMPLETE?
The start date and completion date will be discussed between Thomas and the client during the design process. Starting dates may vary depending on how much work is on the books when the order is placed. A reasonable average for most commissions would be between 2-4 weeks, again depending on the size and complexity of the design.
DO YOU PROVIDE YOUR SERVICES INTERNATIONALLY?
Yes. Thomas is happy to work all around the UK and worldwide as long as travel expenses are covered. For smaller on-site commissions it is more practical to limit his work to his local counties. However, with regards to canvases and artwork, he is happy to complete commissions intended for any destination globally. He has previously completed pieces for many clients from various countries.
WILL THE MURAL OR CANVAS BE DURABLE?
All of the murals and canvases will be executed using the highest quality paints, varnishes and materials to ensure the end product is of high quality. Each finished piece is sealed and protected using a acrylic varnish, which has the advantage of not yellowing over time, allowing many years of enjoyment without any need for maintenance.
WHAT PREPARATION WILL I NEED TO DO BEFORE STARTING A MURAL?
Please ensure that the walls are clean, prepared, painted with an undercoat if needed and ready to be painted on. The surrounding work area will need to be clear and accessible. The acrylic paints and acrylic based spray paints which are used to paint the murals are high coverage and designed to cover most surfaces. Although, if painting the mural over wallpaper, a dark coloured paint or unprepared surface, it is advised that a light coloured undercoat is applied first for best results. If needed, all preparation works can be arranged with Thomas after the site visit for an extra fee.
"I just wanted to thank you for my canvas, the time and effort you put into making sure I got exactly what I wanted was epic! Somehow you managed to decipher my ideas and create a unique and fabulous piece of art. The birthday girl was truly speechless!
Thank you again!"
"I got Tom to do some butterfly stencils on my daughters wall. He even made all the stencils by hand! He made sure I was happy before he did anything and he strives for perfection. If you're not happy, he's not happy! His work is amazing, if your considering some kind of artwork or graffiti work, he's the man to go to!
