Your surfboard painting commission will be on a surfboard sized up to 6'5" (You tell us what size you want).
Pricing for custom surfboards start at the price shown and go up depending on surfboard size and complexity of design. The difference in price will be billed to you after all details are gathered.
The art will be painted for you, by Drew, using his favorite medium of Uni Posca paint pens and/or acrylics.
This is how Drew works with Commissions:
After you place your order and pay for it, please email details of what you want painted. (Send to firstname.lastname@example.org).
TIMING: Depends on Drew's travel schedule and other projects that came before yours. Since every surfboard is hand-made before Drew even begins painting it, a surfboard commission takes about 8-12 weeks. (We can accommodate rush-requests for an additional fee of $500.00).
Once all of your information is received, Drew will work up a sketch and email it to you for your input or approval. Your price includes up to 2 sets of sketch changes. (Additional sketches are billed at $250 each).
But don't worry; Drew usually nails your vision on the first sketch.
Keep in mind: Drew chooses to paint in his own style, and he won't duplicate (copy) anyone else's artwork. But, he will take your desired theme and subject and apply his own "Brophy-style" spin to it.
