Introducing qk custom


qk custom is here! I have been brainstorming ideas for a while on how I could bring back my custom illustrations in a way that would work better for me and the customer and I finally found the solution. I built and launched a big cartel shop and I am so pleased with this shop platform and the end result. It is a-la-cart pricing so you can “build your own” illustration and add specific elements to your cart depending on what kind of illustration you want. There are six slots available, two per month and I’m currently booking for September, October and November. I will add more listings as needed and continue to book out in advance so please plan ahead! Feel free to email me any questions you have about customs, I would love to chat with you about a project.

Here is the listing if you are interested in the process and pricing//

Original custom 8×10″ illustration on 140 lb acid free paper. Materials used: pencil, prismacolor pencils and ink pens

Pricing is a-la-carte (listed in the drop down menu):

1 figure $200

Additional figure (adult or child, may add up to 3) $50 each
Large Dog $40
Small dog or cat $25
Baby (0-3 yrs) $30
Large Accessory $40
Multiple photo fee $50
Digital copy $30
Illustrated notecards $25

To build your own custom illustration, start by adding 1 figure to your cart *note that all illustrations must include this first figure at $200. You may add up to 3 additional figures (adult or child) by choosing from the drop down menu and adding them separately to your cart. Proceed by adding any other options from the menu that you would like in your custom illustration.

Each listing has a deadline listed on it. This is the date it will be shipped out to you. All packages will be shipped USPS and typically take up to four days but nothing is guaranteed so please plan ahead. Deadlines will not change.

After purchasing your listing you have 24 hours to send me FULL LENGTH pictures for your custom illustration. Please send them to queenikathleenidesigns@gmail.com with the deadline as your subject line. Everyone in your custom illustration must be in the picture as I will draw it exactly as the picture is. If you have multiple photos you need to add the “multiple photo fee” to your cart because it takes me more time to piece the illustration together. If you do not send me the photos within a day, I will repost the listing and refund the purchase. Along with your photo please include a detailed description in the email of the important elements of your illustration such as height, hair color, and outfits. There will be NO concept sketch sent for your approval unless you have multiple photos and pay the $50 fee.


*I am currently booking for September, October, and November. Listings for the following 3 months will go up on November 1st. I am unable to reserve spots or refund cancellations.
