"We hired DALE
for his services for our wedding last year in CT and he did a
phenomenal job. Everyone
enjoyed getting their caricatures done without paying a penny
out of their wallets. I would highly recommend this artist..."

Q. 1) "Can you
accept credit cards?"
A) I only do so through an online
service called PayPal.
Q. 2) "What
do you charge for your illustrations?"
A) What I charge depends on a few things;
-1) What, in detail, will my illustration be used for?
-2) What, in detail, must be shown in the illustration?
-3) How soon do you need this done? (How soon does your printer
need my art to meet your deadline?)
-4) Obviously you've seen www.dalegladstone.com?
What samples were most like what you want? Please send me your
fax # with your selection. I'd like to send you an invoice so
you can send a deposit before I begin. Please put in writing any
details I must include in the art. Also put in writing anything
I must not include. The reason for this instruction is best explained
by the following story:
Once I was asked to do a marker drawing of a man at his desk.
No instructions were given regarding his attire, so I drew him
in a jacket & tie. When the client saw this, they said, "Oh
no, he musn't be dressed that way, no jacket & tie..."
With a marker drawing, the only way to fix this would be to put
him in a black turtleneck or do the whole drawing over again.
They didn't want a black turtleneck. They finally understood why
I had to charge them for 2 drawings to give them what they did
want, but I wish to avoid such unhappy situations in the future.
That's why I always ask clients to put their do's & don'ts
in writing. Not all changes require a double fee. Some are even
free. I only charge for needed changes that are not my fault.
How much I charge depends on how much work is required & how
much time is left to do it.
