HOW CAN I GET A COMMISSIONED WORK?
"Commissions are available by contacting me directly. We talk about your desired mediums, where each one has its own price scale. I work in pencil, charcoal, white conte, acrylics, and colored pencil. Size and the subject matter are also key in giving an estimate. After a price is agreed upon, we schedule a deadline around any competitions or previously scheduled commissions, and sign an agreement where half of the agreed cost is paid to begin work. When the commission is complete, the remaining balance is due at pickup. After a commission has started, a refund is unavailable, unless I'm unable to complete the work."
Bryan enjoys donating his time & skill in his original works that are auctioned off to raise funds for an organization.
