Hello and welcome to the commission works page. If you love my art and would like a one of a kind 45 degree consistent scale aerial view city for a home,
office, building lobby, outdoors, etc, then lets get started. The best part of this type of artwork is that I get to work with the collector in part to create a
wonderful piece of art. To build a city takes a lot of time and tedious precision detailed work. I work with large multi-gigabyte files that take a lot of computer power
and rendering time. These works of art consist of thousands of layers of work. It took me years of work to create thousands of individual building structures you
see in these paintings. This time and effort has to be added to the cost of producing any commission work. When designing a city, you need to have an idea of
what you want. You need to ask yourself is it going to be a large or a super city. Do I add mountains, is the city so big it needs to have more than one airport or
port facility, where do expressways go, what type of bridges and so on. It's a lot of work as you can see. Things like bridges, airports, expressways and mountains
have to be custom made and is difficult work. Once you decide on the size of a city and the canvas size to place it on, you then have to cover the canvas with
water and land areas. Then perhaps the most important thing of all is to layout the street grid so everything else in the city can connect together, between and
throughout the grid . If you click on the link
here you can see part of the process of how a city is built . Things are placed in order on a grid, not just thrown
together. Buildings and all the structures that form a city block have to be placed in order one at a time. So as you can see, creating one of my paintings is no
easy task.
Producing a painting  takes me 8 to 12 hours a day, from 5 to 7 days a week for several months. During this time there is physical wear and tear on my eyes,
fingers and back from working at the computer to create the main painting, figuring out and designing the city map and statistics chart, creating a video of the
construction process and then finally software, hardware and living expenses. To cover part of this is a 25 percent not refundable cost on all digitally completed
commission work. From this 25 percent, $2000 dollars is to be paid in advance and will be subtracted
from the 25 percent to start work on the building process. Prices as of 2017 for standard size cities are, $75,000 for a 48 by 144 inch canvas, $100,000 for a 60 by
180 inch canvas, $125,000 for a 72 by 216 inch canvas , $150,000 for a 84 by 252 inch canvas, $175,000 for a 96 by 288 inch canvas, $225,000 for a 120 by 360
inch canvas and $350,000 for a 192 by 576 inch canvas
Prices for super size cities are $100,000 for 48 by 192 inch canvas, $125,000 for a 60 by 240 inch canvas, $150,000 for a 72 by 288 inch canvas, $175,000
for a 84 by 336 inch canvas, $200,000 for a 96 by 384 inch canvas, $275,000 for a 120 by 480 inch canvas and $400,000 for a 192 by 768 canvas  

A total commission work includes the main painting of your city with my signature, photo and finger print, a 40 by 60 inch canvas map with city statistics, video of
the building process, scrapbook of my design process and HD digital picture of the city you can view with a free Gigapan.com account.
On average it takes 3 to 4 months to create the digital part of a painting. After the $2000 non refundable advance is paid, you can cancel work at anytime
for any reason before the digital phase of the work is complete. Once the digital phase of the work is complete, I will send you the online address to view
the work. If you like the online work, you then send the full remaining payment which 25 percent of it is non refundable for my time & production cost. If you
decide you don't want the painting after you receive it, return commission work for your 75 percent refund . The advance $2000 starter fee is part of and will
be subtracted from the 25 percent .
