Q: Can a photograph be
used to draw a particular animal in the logo?
A: Yes. The photo
can be emailed. The more detail that I can see in your
photo, the better the drawing.
Q: If a photo is used and
the logo will include more than one subject, is it necessary
to have them both in the same photo?
A: No. The subjects
can be drawn using different photos.
Q: Can something in the
photo be changed in the drawing?
A: Yes. For example,
if there is a blemish or scar on the animal that you would
not want included, I can do that if you let me know before
the final drawing is begun.
Q: How long does it take
to complete a logo?
A: That mostly depends
upon the time it takes for the logo client to review the
drafts and respond. If many modifications are
requested, it increases the time until completion. It
is best to have a clear idea of the desired outcome, which
should significantly decrease the time from beginning to
end. Commissioned projects are completed on a
revolving basis. For example, while one project is
waiting for a response from a client, another drawing is
being worked on.
Q: Is the final logo done
as a vector file?
A: No. Logos are
drawn on an individual basis, scanned to a computer, then
cleaned and finished manually. They are not composed
of pre-made shapes, objects, or images.
Q: When am I able to use the logo and can I use the
payment in full, the logo belongs to you and you may use the
completed image. Until it is paid in full, the
copyright is not conveyed and use of the image is
Q: If the client defaults on the project, is the
No, the deposit covers work and time. My pledge to you
is that I will deliver the project, at applicable stages, in
appropriate time frames. If the client abandons or
defaults on the project, it will be offered for sale as a
pre-made logo (with appropriate changes to the text) or
retained by the artist for marketing purposes. Until
the image is sold or taken off the market, the original
client will retain the option to pay the balance and obtain
the rights and delivery of the logo.
