Custom Portraits

Working with individuals to bring meaningful photographs to life in a unique, hand made drawing.


  • I provide TWO styles of drawing for my custom portraiture:

    • Style #1: a fun, "sketchy" illustration with intentional loose lines and marker streaks to emphasize the hand-drawn aspect. This style is not realistic, but fun with a lot of expressive personality!

    • Style #2: a more formal, professional portrait with smooth rendering, mimicking photo-realistic qualities. This style is takes more time to complete, but the details are exquisite!

  • Paper Sizes to choose from

    • 8 x 10  |  11 x 14  (inches)​

  • Average time to complete:

    • ​Style #1: 1 hour

  • Send an inquiry email at and provide a clear, high-resolution image of the person(s) or animal that you would like to be drawn, the paper size you would like, and any other necessary details that would help me bring personality to this portrait.

  • We will connect via email and discuss the timeline of when the drawing will be completed, as well as the shipping address of where the original work will be sent.
