Commission a graffiti style portrait or picture

Follow these steps to commission a bespoke interesting contemporary style picture from your photograph. The commission will be painted on calico and delivered rolled by post - you will be free to frame it as you would like.

SATISFACTION GUARANTEE: you only pay for the commission if you keep the paining. When you receive the final work, if you do not like the painting simply return it with no further commitment.

Step 1: Select a photograph

A good photograph will focus on the subject, for a portrait the person should fill most of the shot. The light should come from a single source, for example: photographs taken outside, photos taken indoors with light from a window or a single lightbulb. Professional studio photographs are the best. Outdoor photographs are great. Photographs taken with a flash will rely on the drawing shading which I may not be right without meeting the subject.

Step 2: Choose a style

All commissions are made with hand cut stencils. The stencils are cut to show the shadows and shading in the final painting, these fall into three main styles ... browse the galleries to find a picture you like and you will be able to choose that style for your painting.

Step 3: Choose a predominant colour

All commissions are painted using off-the-shelf spraypaint, and thus are restricted to bold simple colours. the final paining may have many colours in it but, as with all pop art, it will have a predominant colour which you can select to match the room you are wanting to decorate.

Step 4: Choose a size and price

The bigger the picture the more time it takes to make, the more expensive the commission. All stencil graffiti pictures look better bigger (they look best when they are in a large scale on the outside of buildings). Choose the biggest picture as your space and budget will allow.

Step 5: Contact details

Contact details for any queries with the commission and for delivering the final painting.

Step 6: Non-refundable deposit

All commissions will be started on receipt of the deposit which covers basic costs of materials, postage and packaging.

Notes about your photo - is there any part of the photo you want me to concentrate on, for example, should the painting be of just one person in the photo?
