How I Determine Prices For My Drawings

How I determine prices for my traditional artworks 

  • Firstly I determine what level I’m at on a professional scale; whether I’ve accomplished allot in the art world, namely, competitions, awards, validity form peers and gallery presence as well as art displays in its various forms. 
  • Secondly comparatively to well renowned and already fully establish artists doing work in my category/genre of pen/ink drawings, how well do I compare to them? Specifically how uniquely well done is my work in comparison. 
  • Thirdly how important is the artwork to me and how much time I placed into it, I spend a tremendous time on my pieces so I don’t charge for each hour but how difficult the art was to create within a frame of time. Some artworks takes only a day and others take more than a few weeks on the same size of paper so I charge on how difficult it was to create. 
  • Forth, will I make prints of the work or not. I generally refrain from creating prints because I want the customer to have something truly unique and no one else can request it or get a print of it, this way the value of the artwork remains high at the point of resale. I prefer to provide prints of my digital art instead and not my traditional visual art.
  • Fifth, do I want to sell the art work or not. At times the artworks means too much to me to part with and if it’s going to be sold I have to place an emotional value on the piece, I rarely post such art but I may display them at events. 
  • Sixth, the range, I place all my artwork of the same size against each other and determine which should be on a higher level based on all the above and how well they look compared to each other, how much improvement and style development is shown and what sets it apart from the rest of my pieces in a collection. 
  • I do not charge for the professional quality materials I use because regardless of how expensive they are, materials are subjective. I only use the best materials because that’s the only way I’ll feel fulfilled. I don’t think it’s wise to put that expense on my client.  
  • I am trying not to charge for shipping. The way I package my art is rather unnecessary, I could simply role the art up in a tube and ship but I don’t do that, that’s not how I’d like to receive artworks from my favorite artists. I use two pieces of flat board an inch broader than the art to protect the edges and keep the work flat and secure for framing and travel. 
  • I do not currently sell framed art but I can recommend framing options upon request. I take that into my price consideration as well, allowing my client to be secure knowing it’s priced in such a way that they can frame the art financially comfortably themselves. 
  • Other unmentioned factors.

Each Drawing Each drawing must be the hardest thing I’ve ever done. Each drawing should make its predecessor obsolete and absolute; as if I wasn’t doing my best on those, as if I’ve done my best on those. At the beginning It should be confusing and I must figure it out, figure what it’d like to become. Each drawing is king until dethroned by the next I must serve the king. It must be relevant to today and a hundred years from now. It should be out of its time always. It ought not to be replicable or reproduced only one man shall have so much power. One of a kind they must feel how special they are, they must feel your soul radiating from each drawing. I will write my judgement on this white paper.  They must see the many things I was trying to say, they must dig deep to understand why I spoke in such language. They must be able to see more each time they look for days with no end for it changes overtime, the longer they have it the more it should have to say. They must see the unint

 I know its easier to manage your distraction when you are alone but that's how discipline can help you, you ought to exercise a level of self control and discipline around others other than your self; how else can you face adversity should you follow the herd or should you try to figure things out on your own? will you rely on god or shall you seek the God within to perform miracles of self control? Lol you know what surprising to me is that they think they can use incentive programs to swipe away feeding black babies to alligators for sport. They think they can cradle the most of us and make me forget! Bro its in my DNA as if I was one of the children they fed to alligators I can't forget that. I won't let them forget that. Sad that we think we belong in their nations as we forget to reconquer our own. They keep keeping Africa poor so she doesn't rise up and take her rightful place. Marcus Mosiah Garvey wanted this, Bob Marley wanted this and Gadafi wanted this; why a

I am not saying we should build Panera breads nor should we build castles of coffee places in Africa or massive hotels all I am saying is that for the landscape we can do much better the rest of the world depend on the resources that comes out of Africa so why isn’t Africa the most powerful nation in the world?  I am just annoyed why the world haven't changed since we (those in my generation) were children, since we all started to question the world and to figure out what in nonsense since we became wise or are we still foolish. why do we have the same problems why do we allow them to take us for a swim and eventually drowning us. why do we do this to ourselves. leaving more piles of problems for out grandkids to deal with. as long as I live I will do what ever I can through my art to make a difference in the world for I am a world leader and I pray those in my generation live long so they can cry at the mess they allowed to continue through their time.  why do I have to keep askin
