My Commissions Are Closed, Now What?
I understand how frustrating it can be when you have an idea for a custom piece of artwork, but the artist's commissions are closed. As much as I would love to be able to take on every project presented to me, there is just not enough time in the day. Especially while I am still working a full-time job on top of this whole "doodle" thing! Luckily Hamilton is filled with many amazing artists that take on commission work. I have compiled a list of local artists that I think would do a beautiful job bringing your idea to life.
