Using cats and Star Wars for a birthday cartoon

Birthday Cartoon

This one's a recent cartoon commission for an 18th birthday, which combines the birthday boy's passion for Star Wars with his two feline companions. Pleased to say it's gone down very well.

 

We often get enquiries about one-off cartoon commissions such as this. It's perhaps worth mentioning here about expectations and costs. A drawing of this nature is going to take around three hours, if not more, to do. If you were employing a plumber or an electrican for that amount of time you'd be expected to pay an hourly rate that reflected their time and effort. Anyone who runs their own business has to cover their overheads including tax, leasing equipment, pension, and much more. So commissioning Simon to draw a cartoon for a loved one is no different. Gifts like the Star Wars cartoon are nice to give, but they're not as cheap as some people initially think.

 

We're not looking to put you off, just help you understand the work that goes into it and the reasons behind the pricing. If you'd like us to quote on a similar commission for you, a friend or family member, or even a colleague as a leaving gift or to mark milestone, then please get in touch for a quote.
