How to Order

Ordering a Pet Portrait

(This is for pet portraits only, if you're interested in commissioning fantasy art, children's illustration or a book cover, email me)

If you're interested in commissioning a bespoke pet portrait, send me some photos of your pet. Let me know any ideas you have or whether you're looking for a realistic portrait or something more cartoony.

High quality, large photos work best and several photos of your cat or dog in a few different poses will help me create the best portrait. I will draw two or three rough sketches and send you them for you to pick your favourite.


I will send you up to three rough sketches and you can decide which idea you like the best. I will then take 30% deposit and start drawing your portrait. I'll send you regular update photos of the artwork as it progresses.

Depending on size of the artwork and your location, I will either mail it to you rolled in a sturdy cardboard tube or mounted in a cellophane wrapper and packed flat in a box. I will either use a courier service or a first class, tracked postal service.



Is your pet portrait a present for someone? Gift vouchers are also available if you prefer. A PDF voucher will be emailed to you for you to print out or send on. Email me at ellie@elliejaydesigns.com to order.
