Thank you for considering me for your commission. Please find some information below which I hope you will find helpful. If you would be interested in working with me, please contact me and we can have a discussion about your requirements. Each project is different and I quote based on the complexity of the work.
I specialise in vintage posters, figurative people (not portraits), vehicles and houses. I work from photos which you must supply and own the copyright for. All my art is Giclee printed to a high art quality standard. The quote will include the print and postage.
I have 10 years experience working across the advertising and events industry and have a solid knowledge of above and below the line marketing. I am strategically minded and able to interpret a client’s brief to produce artwork to meet their business requirements / needs.
How I work
I will supply initial sketches of the illustration, which we can use as a starting point to agree on the composition. I will then work this up and propose the colour theme; at this stage we can still make changes to the layout and colour. Once this has been approved, I move into final artwork and at this stage small changes can be made but any large composition changes would occur an additional cost.
Commissions for illustrations inspired by multiple photos have become very popular. For these types of illustrations I am briefed on a list of items and supplied with several reference images which I create a composition from. These are more costly than the average commission as there is more upfront thinking, composition development and generally they have more elements to draw. They are an excellent way to include several memories or components in to one final illustration.
Payment / Deadline
We will agree these upfront dependant on the project and current work that I have on. A non-refundable deposit is usually required ahead of starting the project.
Ownership of original art is retained by Katie Hounsome. The artist retains the right to utilise the images produced for self-promotional needs.
