Commission your own original

Portrait illustration 

Commission styles and prices

Darren Woolley, is a designer & Illustrator with over 30 years of experience within the creative industry. During this time he made the transition in my Illustration work from traditional painted media to drawing digitally direct to Wacom Cintiq tablet and ipad Pro. His digital portraits are still painted using the techniques traditionally applied in my pencil, acrylic and gouache work. I strive to keep the same feel and look digitally to create each original piece of art. 

Previous commercial commissions & testimonial work include Asics Sports, Sebastian Coe, Linford Christie, The West Indies Cricket Team, and Notts Forest to name a few.

As your final art is in digital format, the end portrait or graphic art commissioned can be reproduced onto a range of products, materials and sizes without additional scanning work or scanning costs. 

Every portrait and graphic art piece comes as standard on a high quality rolled print with the option to reproduce onto other additional products too. These include: canvas • framed art • Decals • Mugs • Cushions • Bags • Towels • laser art and more. We'll discuss your requirements and provide a quote before starting your commission.

Start your enquiry in a few easy steps.
