We’re a small company. In the past, we’ve sketched for a range of clients. A number of them asked us to sketch their projects.
Nowadays, we’re asked to sketch our own projects. Why are you sketching your own projects? For one thing, there are many more of us than there are of you. We are in one of the biggest art supply chains in the world. If you’re working for any company, the art supply chain tends to go from the artist to the printer to the buyer. If you’re doing that for yourself, you might get the best deals. We’re a small company, but we have people working hard to keep our clients happy.
Another reason we do it for ourselves is that we’ve worked on so many projects we’ve had to get creative. Some clients have requested to sketch for us for a long time. The more times we sketch, the more ideas we come up with. For example, one client asked if we could make a sketch and then ask them to buy some paper to cut out. We asked for the client to write it in pencil and then request them to fax it, for a small fee of course. We went so far as to use a special pen designed for sketching because the pen they had on hand didn’t offer the accuracy of a computer pen. Some clients didn’t even ask to see an art supply artist when we first talked to them. Most of our clients wanted to see and touch as many pieces of paper as possible to get their designs as close to their ideas as possible.
How much art do you draw each month? How many sketches do you generate?
When we sketch we go in and we make a sketch with a bunch of ideas together and then the clients come in and tell me what they want and then we pencil in a pencil drawing at least 20 to 25 times before I send out the design. Then the client sends me a sketch they want to buy and we go back and forth until we have exactly the piece you’re looking for. I usually get a few in a day, usually around a week. If they want more in a day or a week it’s because they want a little more detail than what I penciled in.
How many sketches do you have at any time? How many sketches do you draw that month?
The average drawing a month is around 10 or 11. We typically do at least half of them in one day but there can be more if
