It’s a simple matter of emailing a request, from my contact form with a description of what kind of Illustration you are looking for. You are also welcome to call me at (609) 965-4795 to discuss your requirements.

To arrange to have a hedcut portrait done, the process goes like this:

Find a great photograph of the subject or have one taken. Your photo should be sharp, with good lighting— strong lights and shadows are preferred. Just one good photo is required. Send this as a jpeg, tiff, or other format over to the studio in an email.

Please include your shipping address and phone number with your order.

I’ll do the rest. The photo is processed so that it can be transferred onto the illustration board. The illustration is then created by hand with technical pens in black, india ink. All work is from my own hand.

Included with your artwork is a signed certificate of authenticity, and you receive the original art as well as a digital file that you can use on the web, etc. The original ships to you via FedEx at no charge to you. (International orders will incur an additional fee.)

  1. Hello Kevin,

    I have a client that is interested in getting 3 portrait illustrations, in your style, for a new small business. I have not had a chance to discuss this with them yet so I have no idea what they have budgeted for this. But I am hoping I can get an idea as to how much you may charge before I contact them.

    Thanks for your time. I look forward to hearing from you,

  2. I’d like to commission a Hedcut of my photo. I’ll be using it on my business website. What is your fee?

  3. I have admired Kevin’s work for decades and am proud he created portraits for our firm that crates the image that reinforces the term “trusted advisor”. We proudly display the images on our website and as part of the signature block on our email.
