Terms and Conditions

How To Order

If you are interested in going on Ian’s studio commission list please complete a commission enquiry form outlining what type of commission and what characters/background you would like. Genuine expressions of interest only please. When a slot becomes available we will contact the next person on the list to give them the option of taking that slot and we’ll send a final order form.

In order to secure the slot you will need to sign and return the order form and pay a non-refundable deposit of 25% of the full price. Ian will make every effort to complete the commission within the specified timeframe.

Once the commission is finished, we will send a low-resolution scan and invoice for the outstanding amount, including shipping costs. We aim to ship the art within five working days of payment being received.

Lost or Damaged Goods

We securely package artwork before shipping to minimise the likelihood of damage. We cannot be held responsible for any damage or loss to packages once we have handed them over to Royal Mail or another shipping agent.

In the unlikely event that artwork sent by a tracked/signed for service is lost or damaged beyond repair, we will pursue a compensation claim. The buyer agrees to fill out forms and provide evidence of payment as needed. For damaged goods, the buyer agrees to keep all packaging and the artwork and be prepared to submit photographic evidence of the damage as needed.

In the unlikely event that a commission piece is lost or damaged beyond repair, the buyer will have the option to have the piece redrawn or accept a refund. If a refund is chosen, the buyer agrees to fill out forms and provide evidence of payment as needed. For damaged goods, the buyer agrees to keep all packaging and the commission and be prepared to submit photographic evidence of the damage.

In the unlikely event that artwork is lost in transit, different shipping agents have different rules regarding when a package is deemed to be lost. We will keep the buyer appraised of any developments, but the process will be beyond our control and we will be unable to issue any refund/replacement art until the timeframe specified by the agent has passed.

For UK buyers, we will issue a full refund of the insured amount. For example, if the buyer purchases art worth £100 but chooses a postage option that insures it to £50, they will be entitled to a refund of £50 plus postage and packaging charges. If the buyer prefers, we can instead offer replacement art to the insured value, with no delivery charge.

For international buyers, we will issue a full refund plus postage and packaging charges. If the buyer prefers, we can instead offer replacement art of the same value, with no delivery charge.

Custom Duties and Import Tax

We are based in and all art is shipped from the UK. The buyer is responsible for verifying and paying any import duties imposed by their country’s customs. Currently, original art shipped to other EU destinations and the US should not incur customs duties.
