There are a lot of factors involved but I’ll do my best to provide a competitive estimation for you based on your requirements.
Unless it’s my original artwork I would recommend you contact the original artist/painter first out of courtesy and respect.
I can work on top of existing finishes as long as they are in good condition (factory is usually best). If you have had an item re-finished you might have some underlying issues to be considered. I always consult with a time served body shop specialist if unsure.
I can work to a deadline as long as it is realistic, but I won’t compromise on quality. If you have a specific date in mind for a project to be completed by I will try my best to deliver on time. I try to turn a small project around in 3-4 weeks (helmets/guitars/bike frames), bigger projects may take a little longer or if they need to be in/out the body shop more than usual.
I specialise in design and artwork, I have the use of a reliable local auto body shop fitted out with a state of the art booth, who undertake most body work on larger projects including repair, primer, base coats, lacquering, and machine polishing – If you have a dent or need some body work doing before artwork – it’s not a problem.
Sorry, I don’t take on any insurance jobs.
I accept Cash, Cheque, PayPal, Bank Transfer and even credit card.
All payments are accountable, I therefore can’t offer discounts if you want to pay by cash, or on the promise that you will generate more work for me if I do it cheaper!
All payments must have fully cleared before I can release any goods/artwork and a deposit must be paid before I start any concept artwork or book your job in.
I provide digital mock ups and conceptual artwork for nearly all projects. I usually charge a non-refundable £50 deposit or will agree a one off fee payment which will allow me to allocate time to produce concept artwork for your project. If you commit to paintwork, the deposit is put towards your final invoice. One off fee payments for concept work will provide you with all artwork/designs and the rights to them to use how you feel fit.
Unfortunately I can’t provide free artwork!
I am based in Hull, East Yorkshire, UK.
I don’t advertise the shop address for a number of reasons. Please contact me if you wish to meet in person or send anything to me.
You can send pretty much anything to me to be painted (within reason). I take on commissions of all shapes and sizes from all corners of the world and can source next day shipping for you.
Unfortunately I don’t have the capacity to employ, train or offer work experience at the moment.
If you’re serious about learning to airbrush I can point you in the right direction and offer some friendly advice.
I operate on a first come first serve booking system, booking jobs in well in advance with a depsoit securing an estimated time slot. I am generally booked up solid 2-3 months in advance, but you can book in for a time slot further away – for example booking a frame in for paintwork once your racing season is complete.
