Can I commission Pat do a custom illustration for my website, project or book?

Yes. Click on the homepage “Gallery” link, then go to “Pat’s Gallery 2” or “Pat’s Gallery 3”. Most of the artwork on those two galleries were done as commissioned illustrations for clients. I do quite a bit of commission work. The illustrations you’ll see on that gallery ranged in price between $400.00 to $6000.00. For an estimate, please email a detailed description of what you want in the illustration and what you will be using it for, and I will get back to you in a few days with an estimate, and also let you know if and when I will be available to do the work. Send your email to As a general rule, if what you want is very detailed with many figures or objects, it will cost more than if it is something simple, because of the time involved. My hourly fee is $35.00. If you have a good idea of what you want, it will save quite a bit of design and layout time. If you decide to go for it, I’ll let you know when it can be scheduled. I then will send a contract which you would sign and return with a percentage of the payment, and I would begin your illustration. The balance of payment would be due upon completion. NOTE: I do not design logos. But if you need an illustration for use within a logo, I can do that part for you, and your printer can add the type.
