PRE-ORDER for 2019// SHIPPING by APRIL 30, 2019// Custom Pet Portrait! 5x7 Marker Sketch (ONE pet)


STOP! PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE LISTING *CAREFULLY* BEFORE YOU PROCEED WITH YOUR ORDER
(the information below will be copy/pasted and emailed back to you as a reminder when you place your order. Please help me keep my inbox sane and my order process streamlined & retain a copy for your own records. Allow ME to check in with YOU next year to collect your information and photos. Please do not send me any photos or order requests until I email you asking for them. THANK YOU! Ok, now please read on...)

*This listing is a PRE-ORDER for DELIVERY in the SPRING of 2019.

*As of October 1, 2018, all commissions and custom orders are CLOSED for 2018, in order to allow me time to finish work and ship in time for December holiday gift giving.

*Purchasing this listing means you are accepting a shipping date of APRIL 30, 2019.

*My entire shop will be closing for the season on December 10th (meaning after the 10th you will not be able to purchase even ready-to-ship items until the shop reopens on January 25th).

*From December 10, 2018 -January 25, 2019 I will be on vacation and will not be able to respond to emails or Tictail talk messages.

*When my shop reopens on January 25th, I *will* have listings for custom portraits back up and running. HOWEVER, due to increases in materials costs out of my control & alongside a return to my original pricing structure for custom work & original turnaround time, there will be a price increase of at least $10-20+ across all elements/ pieces. Those listings will be VERY limited in number, BUT they will also have a 5 week turnaround (instead of 8). If you NEED your custom piece to ship by March 1st/ within 5 weeks of sending in your photos, PLEASE WAIT to purchase a listing until the shop re-opens and those are available.

*The 5-week turnaround listings that will be back in the shop on January 25th will be very limited in number (probably only 2 at a time), which will mean setting alarms and reminders in order to grab your spot before anyone else.

*IF you don't need your piece sooner than May; IF you don't want to have to worry about securing a spot during those limited re-openings; IF you would like to lock in this sale price... THIS is the listing to purchase.

*Purchasing this listing means you are securing a spot in my 2019 order queue. You will not have to do ANYTHING else after purchasing this listing UNTIL 2019, when *I* email YOU to collect your images and information for the piece.

*You may purchase as many listings as you need.

*This listing is for ONE pet portrait. For 5x7s I can only fit one animal per paper. Each animal you would like to have drawn needs its own listing purchased. 

*If you will need your order of multiple pieces to ship to different locations, you must complete each of those orders separately so that shipping is paid in full for each order. I cannot split orders after the fact.

*If you have ordered a portrait before, you will remember that there is a small Q&A that accompanies these listings-- a way for me to information gather before I start the pieces. I will leave those questions (below) so you can begin planning, but PLEASE do not email me your answers yet. I don't want to run the risk of losing anything and I need to work through the 100+ emails I have in my inbox right now for current orders. I will contact YOU in January 2019, when I am ready, to collect your information and images.

*DO YOU HAVE *ANY* QUESTIONS?! Please please please email me BEFORE you purchase your listing if you do! I will be keeping these listings active until I have reached what I know will be the limit I can complete in that 12 week period.

THANK YOU FOR READING!

For 2019 PRE-ORDERS,
the following info will be EMAILED TO YOU in January 2019, and you will be asked to respond with your answers. You can certainly start thinking about what your answers will be, but please do not send any of this info to me until I reach out to you for it. Thank you!

------------------------------------

Please read the full listing for information on how to submit your images & requests!
This listing is for ONE pet portrait. If you would like multiple pets in one drawing (on one sheet of paper), please email me first so I can make a custom listing for you with updated pricing & information (I would not typically recommend multiple pets on a 5x7 due to space restrictions). These are 5x7 marker & colored pencil sketches done on bristol board or strathmore vellum paper (as available/appropriate for the piece). Your piece will be custom created & will allow for a wee bit of wiggle room-- I'd love your feedback on any color preferences or strong dislikes you may have, and if you would like a floral wreath, floral crown, both or neither OR a name banner under your pet. You can choose from the list of variations below! If the piece is a memorial and you would like to add a halo, please include that request when you send your photos to me. 

(If you don't choose an decorative option, or include further details in your email along with your photos, I will do whatever I think will look the best!)

Please keep in mind that these are meant to be whimsical interpretations of your buddy, so likeness will the goal, but photo realism is not. I will be taking a bit of license with the colors (black furred cats will likely be rendered in a dark purple instead... your dog's freckles won't be exact... and may look a bit more like a celestial sky); these are meant to be playful and capture your baby's spirit-- to go beyond the photograph!

For best results, I will need you so send me a few photos to work from-- preferably pictures taken at your pet's eye level, so their face isn't distorted by the camera being too close or too far above or below them. You can send those to me after you've completed your purchase, at: danamarie.hosler@gmail.com

*SHIPPING NOTE FOR U.S. RESIDENTS: Please also note that due to the irreplaceable nature of original work, these drawings will ship with $60 worth of insurance each, so that in the unlikely event that they go missing in transit, they can be tracked and a claim filed to cover the cost of re-drawing your piece. You'll note that the shipping cost is higher than the standard First Class shipping ($10 for 8x10 pieces & $8 for 5x7 pieces). FOR INTERNATIONAL ORDERS: There is no viable option for tracking & insuring your portrait. I will scan your piece ahead shipping so a digital copy of it will exist & can be printed from in the unlikely case of loss in transit.

Thank you!


***DUE TO THE NATURE OF CUSTOM WORK, these pieces can not be returned. Please ask any questions before placing your order! Thank you!***
