New Illustrations

With our New Illustration option, we can draw new items to add into our mural scenes.  We can draw buildings, statues, or other local landmarks.  We can draw specific people, specific outfits, or people doing specific activities.  And we can draw specific types of animals.  Just send us photos---large enough photos for us to see enough detail.  (Note--New Illustration is not available for Table Sheet orders except in very limited circumstances, or very large orders.  Call for more info.)

We add an upcharge to bring in illustrator(s) to draw these new items.  We add a fee of anywhere between $50 for just a couple of items, to $250 if you give us a long list of complex items.  However, $150 is our most common charge, but it depends on several factors.

Examples Of How We Work

Here are examples showing the photos we were provided, along with the design we came up with.

Wishing Tree / Chinese New Year - 1699

Wishing Tree / Chinese New Year - 1699

We were asked to draw a "Wishing Tree", a staple of Chinese New Year celebrations.  For a real wishing tree, attendees are asked to write their wish for the upcoming year on one of these cards, which had an orange tied to it.  The wishes would then be hung on the tree.  For our mural, hundreds of people can write their wishes directly onto the "cards", which are of course already on the tree.
