COMMISSIONED ART ILLUSTRATION PROCESS
Commission Stacey Rose to create the fashionably inspired art of your dreams. Whether you are looking for bespoke illustrations for your walls, custom art for your business, or a memento of a special day, my illustrations will be a treasured keepsake for years to come.
When you commission me for a fashion illustration, you can expect a collaborative and personalized process. We’ll start by discussing your style preferences, color palette, and any specific details you’d like to include in the illustration. From there, I’ll use my artistic skills and attention to detail to create a beautiful and unique illustration that captures your essence and style.
My custom illustrations are a mix of gouache, watercolor, ink, and digital and are printed on Hahnemuhle German Etching, a deluxe heavy weight 310gsm, natural white, slightly textured, hand-moulded rag. Your final piece comes with a complimentary matted border so it is ready to be popped straight in a frame.
I also offer a range of styles, from more realistic to traditional fashion illustrations and everything in between, so you can choose the aesthetic that best reflects your personality.
Commissioning a fashion illustration is a wonderful way to celebrate your style and individuality. If you’re interested in commissioning me for a piece of fashion art, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. Let’s create something chic and beautiful together!

Do I need pictures of exactly what I want illustrated?
Not necessarily! While photo’s are helpful to give me a better idea of your vision, I can create the poses, clothings, accessories, background, make and more as long as you provide a written brief for your dream illustration.
I like to use photos when you want an illustration to look exactly like a person, or pet.
Can I order a smaller or larger size?
For an illustration, the smallest size I offer is 8×10″ or A4. The largest size I have worked on was above 2 meters.
How long does it take to create custom artwork?
Turn around time for personal illustrations is usually 6 weeks and business illustrations 3-4 weeks. During busy times (holiday rush), the actual turn around time may be longer but a timeline for each project will always be agreed upon and detailed out in the Artist’s Agreement. Depending on my workload, I can sometimes accommodate rush orders for an additional fee.

Do you ship internationally?
Yes! I will happily ship your custom illustration outside of the N.Z. but take note that you’ll be responsible for any customs or duty fees. If you are happy for you works to have a digital illustration, I can sometimes arrange printing at a fine art printers within your country.
How will my illustration arrive?
Each illustration is backed with cardboard, secured in a cello sleeve and wrapped with a logo bow. I ship all custom illustrations in a box (no flat mailers) for extra protection and insure them for the full purchase amount. They ship via NZ Post tracked. Courier options and DHL are also available.
Do you have any suggestions for how to frame my artwork?
While I am partial to a gold bamboo frame, I can arrange custom framing. This is POA and for international customers, this will require specialty shipping.
How much of a deposit is required up front?
In order to secure your spot in my project schedule, I require a 50% deposit up front along with the signed Artist’s Agreement before I can begin any job.
Is the Artist’s Agreement the same things as a contract? What’s in it?
Yes. The Artist’s Agreement is a basic commission contract that details out all the elements of your custom illustration project. Things like the type of illustration, what size it is, when the rough draft and final drafts are due along with shipping method, and price are all included. If you’re commissioning a custom illustration for business use, the Artist’s Agreement will also include details about the usage rights transferred to you. This makes sure we’re both on the same page and everyone knows what to expect.
