Common questions asked before doing commissions:
What is the subject matter? How large is the art going to be? Do you have a budget? If it's a mural, where is the location/city?
A non-refundable deposit fee is required before starting sketches for murals. That cost is then applied to payment. There is a 30%-50% deposit fee for all projects. The commitment in the form of a deposit protects the artist and the customer.
