STOP! PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE LISTING *CAREFULLY* BEFORE YOU PROCEED WITH YOUR ORDER
(the information below will be copy/pasted and emailed back to you as a reminder when you place your order. Please help me keep my inbox sane and my order process streamlined & retain a copy for your own records.
Additionally, allow ME to check in with YOU later this year to collect your information and photos of your pet. Please do not send me any photos or order requests until I email you asking for them. THANK YOU! Ok, now please read on...)
*This listing is a PRE-ORDER for DELIVERY in JUNE of 2019.*
*Purchasing this listing means you are accepting a shipping date of JUNE 22, 2019.
*Through January 25, 2019 I will be on vacation and will not be able to respond to emails in a timely manner.
*Purchasing this listing means you are securing a spot in my 2019 order queue. You will not have to do ANYTHING else after purchasing this listing UNTIL at least March 2019, when *I* email YOU to collect your images and information for the piece.
*You may purchase as many listings as you need.
*This listing is for ONE pet portrait. For 5x7s I can only fit one animal per paper. Each animal you would like to have drawn needs its own listing purchased.
*If you will need your order of multiple pieces to ship to different locations, you must complete each of those orders separately so that shipping is paid in full for each order. I cannot split orders after the fact.
*If you have ordered a portrait before, you will remember that there is a small Q&A that accompanies these listings, regarding the decorative elements and colors of the piece. When I am ready to collect your images & info, I will reach out to you.

*DO YOU HAVE *ANY* QUESTIONS?! Please please please email me BEFORE you purchase your listing if you do!
-----------------------------THANK YOU FOR READING!-------------------------------------
These are 5x7 marker sketches done on bristol board or strathmore vellum paper (as available/appropriate for the piece). Your piece will be custom created & will allow for a wee bit of wiggle room-- I'd love your feedback on any color preferences or strong dislikes you may have, and if you would like a floral wreath, floral crown, both or neither OR a name banner under your pet. You can choose from the list of variations (flower crown, flower wreath, greenery wreath, name banner.) If the piece is a memorial and you would like to add a halo, please include that request when you send your photos to me.
Please keep in mind that these are meant to be whimsical interpretations of your buddy, so likeness will the goal, but photo realism is not. I will be taking a bit of license with the colors (black furred cats will likely be rendered in a dark purple instead... your dog's freckles won't be exact... and may look a bit more like a celestial sky); these are meant to be playful and capture your baby's spirit-- to go beyond the photograph!
For best results, I will need you so send me a few photos to work from-- preferably pictures taken at your pet's eye level, so their face isn't distorted by the camera being too close or too far above or below them. For orders placed after October 1, 2018, PLEASE do not send photos until they are requested. Thank you!
*SHIPPING NOTE FOR U.S. RESIDENTS: Please also note that due to the irreplaceable nature of original work, these drawings will ship with $60 worth of insurance each, so that in the unlikely event that they go missing in transit, they can be tracked and a claim filed to cover the cost of re-drawing your piece. You'll note that the shipping cost is higher than the standard First Class shipping ($10 for 8x10 pieces & $8 for 5x7 pieces).
FOR INTERNATIONAL ORDERS: There is no viable option for tracking & insuring your portrait. I will scan your piece ahead shipping so a digital copy of it will exist & can be printed from in the unlikely case of loss in transit. Thank you!
***DUE TO THE NATURE OF CUSTOM WORK, these pieces can not be returned. Please ask any questions before placing your order! Thank you!***
