Work Terms

Our work hours are flexible.

We answer inquiry emails and phone calls between 10 a.m. and 7 p.m., but if we are working on an assignment for you, we will get back to as frequently as possible, usually within the hour. Email communication is the easiest method for contacting us when we're managing a project, but we're flexible and welcome your texts, IMs, and phone calls.

We request 50% deposits to begin working on your project but will consider a smaller deposit for concept sketching/drafting. We will consider payment arrangements, too, so long as we are compensated in-full before the release of the final high-resolution art files/assets.

We offer discounts for prepayment and/or bulk commissions.

Thank you!
