Commission: Pet Portrait

Coloured pet portraits start at $60 CAD.

You provide the photographs, I’ll provide an everlasting token of your beloved pet. Cat, dog, bird, lizard, whatever the animal, I would love to illustrate them!

Great idea for birthday present, Christmas gift, or for the animal lover in your life ;)

Portraits are done on quality illustration board, with pen, promarkers and coloured pencil. Size options are…

5×7″ ($60 CAD) *to note, at this size a lot of detail will be lost

8×10″ ($130 CAD)

9×12″ ($150 CAD) *most popular choice!

11×14″ ($185 CAD) *most popular choice for multiple subjects

… with the option for multiple subjects in one illustration. The price increases by $50 CAD for a second subject, and $25 CAD for each additional subject.

To note: in the ‘multiple pets’ samples above, the cats/poodles are drawn separately. This was the vision of the customer; you can of course have them interacting, as well!

How it works:

  • Contact me at or through the form below. I need at least one decent photograph of your pet, though multiple pictures would be ideal so that I may truly capture his/her unique characteristics. Feel free to tell me a little bit about your pet, his/her personality, most notable features, etc… I want to be able to capture your beloved animal the way -you- see him/her.
  • I’ll send you an initial sketch proof (will have PROOF watermark), free of charge. Once that’s approved, I’ll ask for a nonrefundable deposit of 20% before continuing.
  • Depending on my schedule, the portrait should be done within 1-3 weeks. If requested I can keep you up-to-date with WIP pictures, otherwise I will send you a proof of the final product to approve before I ship it out.
  • Payment via electronic money transfer (i.e. interac e-transfer) preferred, thank you!
