Hi everyone! This post is not related to food except insofar as it relates to what I do to put the bread (and sometimes the yummy polo khoresh) on the table. Have I ever told you? No? Well, don’t be mad, it’s not like you ever asked! Some other time I’ll tell you all about “Azita version 1.0” and what (shenanigans) she was up to but as far as the current model “Azita version 2.0” goes, what I do is: I write, design and illustrate.
One of the things I love to do is making portraits of people, pets, things, objects! I sometimes think about opening an Etsy shop for custom portraits and maybe one day I will, but meanwhile, just in time for the holidays and with the season of peace, love and gift giving upon us, consider this post to be my pop-up shop in my own itty bitty corner of the Internet. Where the rent is good, the view is tranquil, the air is fragrant with a hint of cardamom, and the shopkeeper (that’d be yours truly) greets you with a big smiley open arms embrace and gives you ‘chaii va shirini’ (tea and cookies.)
So, gentle reader, if you have the time, please do take a look and browse my pop up online shop! If you like what you see, do consider commissioning your very own custom portrait as either a keepsake for yourself or as a unique gift for the nice (and what the heck, even the naughty) people on your holiday gift-giving list. (To sweeten the pot, I’m offering a 30% discount on all orders placed in December! Yowza!)
(While I have your ears, I may as well also tell all of you bloggers and small business owners that I offer a super duper graphic design package deal for revamping your brand and online presence: everything from creating your logo, banners, gravatars, to all of your social media icons and web graphics. I can also design your business cards, fliers, brochures & newsletters. If you need help with content and copy, I can help you out with that as well. If that’s something you’re interested in, pop in and let’s talk.)
Fig & Quince’s Pop Art Custom Portraits | People, Pets, Snapshots, Milestones
The portrait is an art form that has been around for thousands of years. A beautiful custom portrait makes a gratifying gift to give or to receive. Unique, timeless, fun! An instant heirloom. Perfect for decorating and personalizing any office or home — a great way to memorialize a family snapshot; a beloved person or pet; or a significant event like a graduation, birth, wedding, anniversary, and other milestones. (Scroll down for details and pricing.)
For the portraits, I work from photographs and use a digital vector art medium. The final artwork will be a downloadable file that can then be printed and framed. (If you prefer a traditional non-digital format, i.e. acrylic or mixed media collage, I’m very much open to that discussion as well. Please check out my portfolio website to view samples of my other art styles and let’s talk.)
Here’s how it would work:
- Contact me (Email me or use the form below. We’ll then schedule a time to talk and go over the details: color, background, concept, everything else.)
- Review & Approve (After you place an order, I will provide you with a proof in 3-5 business days. You can request as many changes as you need to approve it! I want you to be super duper happy with the results.)
- Receive & Enjoy (In 1-3 business days I will email you a low rez file. Upon final approval, you will receive an instant digital downloadable file of your custom artwork.)
Format: The artwork will be a high resolution digital file that you can download.
Size: Dimensions will be to your specifications. I will be happy to provide you with 3 different sizes for the same price.
Pricing: $150 per subject per portrait, with a solid color background. Additional subjects an additional $25-75 per complexity. If you want a family snapshot, I am open to discussing a flat rate instead of a per-subject-rate to make it less cost prohibitive. (30% off applicable to all orders placed in December!)
Payment: 50% deposit required when placing an order; remainder due upon final approval of the artwork.
Method of Payment: At this point I am only set up to accept payment via PayPal. If we know each other in real life, I can also accept personal checks.
Note: Printing, framing and shipping of the artwork are not included but if you prefer, can be arranged, and will be priced separately.
Portfolio: A few more samples illustration are imbedded below. Please also feel free to check out my portfolio website and other work samples.
I would love to make a beautiful artwork for you and look forward to hearing from you. You can contact me using this email form.
