Product Description

These custom pencil portraits are created based off of your reference photos, so each portrait is a one of a kind work of art.  They are offered in 4 standard sizes – 8 x 10, 11 x 14, 16 x 20 and 18 x 24 and will consist of a head & shoulder pose.

Each piece is created using professional grade materials.  I have chosen  two types of paper to give you more options.  The first is a white Bristol Board that is 96 lb. paper.  It is made from recycled materials and has a smooth surface on one side and a textured surface on the back.  For my drawing purposes, I always use the smooth side.  This paper is thicker than the Stonehenge papers that are listed.

If you are looking for some color choices, I recommend choosing one of the Stonehenge papers.  The Stonehenge papers are 90 lb. weight and offer a smooth working surface.  They are machine made using 100% cotton fibers.  I am offering 4 color choices – any of which would make your portrait stand out.


Once you have submitted your order, I ask that you submit your reference photo.  That can be done by simply emailing it to me at

After I receive your order and reference photo, I may contact you should I have any questions about your photo.  Please check out my photo guidelines for pointers on the types of photos that work best.

Now I am ready to begin your portrait!  For all orders, I have a two week turn around.  That does not mean that yours will take two weeks.  I allot extra time for email communication with you, change requests and final approval.

When your portrait order is complete, I will email you a “proof” of the final product.  Before I ship it out, you must approve the artwork.  I want to make sure that you are completely satisfied with your purchase.  At this time, I can make minor adjustments if needed.

After you have approved your portrait, I will spray it with a fixative.  The fixative will “set” the graphite and prevent it from smudging.  It will also keep your artwork from yellowing over time.

If you have ordered a mat, I will mat your portrait and package your artwork in an acid free art sleeve with a backing board.  And its ready to ship!

When your item ships out, I will email you tracking information so that you know where your order is at all time.  I ship using Priority Mail.

And if you have any questions along the way, I am more than happy to help.  Please email me at
