Commissions
I am always happy to talk about commissions: I start every project with a thorough discussion of what you're looking for, and the best way for me to achieve that. Once started, I keep you up-to-date with regular progress reports before delivering on-schedule, high-quality work. Previous commissions have included:

Illustrations
Hand-written wine labels
Love letters
Wedding stationery - invites, place cards and seating plans.
Wedding crests
Family crests
Hand-written cotton shopping bags
Illustrated poetry
Maps of places real and imagined
Wooden prop swords
Custom paintings
Hand-bound leather notebooks
Skinned and mounted games console
Musical instrument customisation
Game icons and graphics
Book titles
Book covers

Rates
All my rates include delivery, with a small supplement for tracked delivery to the US.

Maps
I offer either digital or entirely hand-drawn maps - the latter are also hand-lettered on heavy acid-free paper, before being aged or painted in watercolour before posting by tracked delivery (US is an additional 10, I'm afraid). Digital maps will be sent as a 300dpi print-quality image file.

Illustration
I draw my illustrations in dip-pens and fineliners on heavy acid-free paper, and finish with watercolour. Work up to 9" x 12" can be delivered as a 300dpi image file, larger sizes can be delivered digitally by arrangement. Small pieces will be delivered by letter post, 12" x 16" and larger by tracked delivery (additional 10 for the US).
