Hire Art Skull Information and Project Price Quotes

I have many years of experience in graphic design, including advertising specialties, T-shirts, banner ads, book covers, flyers, business cards and much more. If you have a project that requires illustration or graphic design, then send me an email with detailed information and I'll send you a price quote. My rates are reasonable and there is no charge for a quote except the time it takes you to send me an email. Remember, you never know about anything unless you ask.

Once you have decided to hire me for graphic work, we will work out a written agreement on size of artwork, media to be used for artwork, copyright agreements, date required, payment involved and all other details. A signed written agreement is required for all illustration and design work. Remember, agreements keep people friends.

Then, based on information provided by you, I will draw a rough sketch of the design(s) you've requested. A small deposit is necessary to begin work.

I will email the sample design(s) to you for approval.

After you approve the rough design(s), I will do the finished art.

After final payment is made, I'll email a low res image (72 dpi) of the finished art for you to view and mail you a high res (300 dpi) image on CD and original art.

NOTE: For all illustration and graphic design orders, payment in full is due in advance. For faster service Paypal is preferred form of payment. Please allow 2 weeks for electronic checks to clear before work begins. Payment can also be made in the form of a cashiers check or money order. NOTE: NO personal checks accepted.

“Forget, for a moment, about the art of Artskull. Ultimately, it is likely the most important thing, but if you are reading this letter of recommendation, then you probably know that there are as many would be artists in this world as there are would be writers and would be musicians and so on. What I like about Artskull is his professionalism, fair billing (a true rarity in the world of art and graphic design) and most of all his eagerness to please the client, not his own ego. Too many people I have dealt with are so concerned with the art that they are making that they forget that the client has something in mind as well. Artskull differs because, although he wants to make the best art possible, he wants to make sure the client has exactly want they want. Once you begin to work with him, you will find that he is intuitive as well. Artskull created my favorite piece for Diabolik DVD with no input from me whatsoever. He had an idea, he ran with it and just when I thought it was done - it was tweaked and improved for the better! Now, back to the feature presentation - the artwork. Like a blast from your Saturday afternoon movie matinees past, Artskull‘s work pops off the page with all of your favorite nightmares bathed in a surreal glow of eye-catching colors. Not to say that his artwork is limited to movie monsters and things that go bump in the night, but for my purposes, it does. Cool, retro, creepy... that's what I need and that is what Artskull has delivered to me in spades time and time again always with the promptness and professionalism that keeps me coming back for more and recommending him to all that will listen.”

“Art Skull has consistently provided me with outstanding service. After hiring him for a small job, I soon began to rely on him for all of my web graphics and graphic design projects. He's got a flair for anything dark, scifi, horror, or just plain fun and different. Without him my site would not be what it is; a great-looking and fun place to go. Because Art Skull is so instinctually aware of what I want, I trust him to come up with design ideas on his own for my projects. After working with him for so long, he's been able to discern my personal tastes and to visually create original images based on his obeservations. And I have never been disappointed with anything he's ever created for me.”

“There are not enough kind words or hours in the day to describe our sincere gratitude to ArtSkull. We searched for a graphic artist at the inception of MoviedromeDVD as we needed a logo that would perfectly match our Cult Film concept. We were presented with pathetic and downright laughable generic designs leaving us disappointed and frustrated more than once… and then we found ArtSkull! [Insert skies opening up and a choir of angels with tattoos singing here]. This is one man who knows his stuff. Within a day we had our first options, within a week we had begun to narrow it down and then we threw more ideas at him… this did not faze him a bit. He took our ideas and worked them into the mix without missing a step! Shortly we had a logo better than we had imagined it! Since the completion of this initial logo we have worked happily with ArtSkull on the banner and favicon for our website. Again he provided outstanding ideas, constant communication, and a simply astounding finished product that still makes us smile when we see it! ArtSkull is the whole package… professionalism, patience (always needed with the two of us), humour, knowledge, attention to detail and most importantly stunning talent and creativity. ArtSkull provides the perfect balance between our ideas and his interpretation of them -- leading to a working relationship that is nothing short of brilliant. There is one thing that he wrote to us time and time again: “I want you to be 110% satisfied.” This percentage not only encompasses his work ethic but also helps describe our level of happiness at having found ArtSkull. We can say without hesitation that we are completely delighted with the work and we can (and do) recommend him to anyone who might be able to use his talents. Thank you ArtSkull!”

“For someone who takes his amazing talent of digital art simply as a hobby, ArtSkull sits in front of his screen with no effort as he creates what we'd consider priceless. Our creations which we make in our head, and are unable to send to the paper, ArtSkull simply listens. As you speak your mind of the vision, it becomes visible. I'd have to say personally, I was amazed of how my image came out. I would have expected at least one little thing I didn't like, but it's for a lack of a better word, perfect.”
