Commission a Fuzzy Portrait

Sundara, 2011

No, not the four-footed fuzzies. That skein of artwork that’s stuffed in a Tupperware container somewhere. Doesn’t that beauty deserve a spot on the wall next to your son’s summer camp portrait? You bet it does! I’m offering to photograph your stash so that you can actually look at it, even while it’s tucked safely away from the sunlight. Complete details are on a new page: Family Portrait.

The basic info is here:
Family Portrait: commission a photograph of your stash!

Anyone who knits understands what I mean. The rest of you? Well, join a knitting group and you’ll get it. I’m offering commission portraits of your yarn stash. Or just a part of it. You know, that collection of hand-dyed artwork that’s stuffed in a Tupperware tub, bookcase cubbie or closet. Really. Is that any way to treat that beautiful work? Commission a portrait of your yarn! Or more than one. Then you can hang it proudly with the kids’ soccer photos. We get it.

You: mail me the skeins you’d like photographed. In your package include your name, address, phone number & email. Please indicate the finished size you’d like and whether or not you’d prefer a border. Also consider insuring your package. I know those babies are expensive.

I: Return your treasured skeins, insured, with an unframed, unmatted color photograph printed on heavyweight Hahnemuhle 100% cotton rag paper using archival inks.

Costs:
8″ x 10″ $45 print + $5 shipping
11″ x 17″ $85 print + $7 shipping
16″ x 20″ $125 print + $10 shipping

Prices are higher than normal purchase price because these are commissioned photos. Normal studio rate is $60/hr.

Postcards: 4.13″ x 5.82″ on heavyweight 16pt, sustainably sourced paper stock, with a glossy laminate finish $45/20 + $5 shipping
Note cards: 4.13″ x 5.82″ on heavyweight 16pt, sustainably sourced paper stock, with a light satin finish (unfinished on the inside) $75/25 + $5 shipping
