Would you like a Hug from me? For yourself or for someone else?

That’s possible! Read how:

Have you been missing hugging your loved ones as much as I have? Some of you have and have asked me to draw them or their loved ones an inky hug after seeing the Hugs I drew for my family and friends on social media. Seeing how happy these drawings made people, I’ve decided to do commissions for everybody who wants one – for themselves, or for their loved ones.

How do Hugs work?

If you want a Hug from me, you need to fill out a form that you’ll find the link to below. But please, read on first to make sure you’re okay with the way I work! This form will give me the information I need about who I draw for and what theme I should draw this in. The material is always India ink, the size always A5. Along with some information you need to provide me with the photo(s) of the person(s) you want me to draw, which is either you and me or someone else and me or you and someone else. Don’t worry about the data you provide. It’s only used for doing the job and shipment and never sold off. After the commission all is deleted.

From the moment you’ve reserved a spot and have sent me your form, please reserve 7 work days for me to finish the job. If the Hug’s for someone else, you’ll get a digital file with the end result to make sure you like the job. Like it? Fine. I’ll send it to the required address. Don’t like it? Too bad. The drawing will end up in my shop for someone else to love and purchase it. So, to make things clear, you pay AFTER giving the OK and BEFORE shipment.

Aha, money!

The cost of Hugs

The price for a personalized original inky Hug is only € 95,00 + shipment.

Copyright is NOT transferred and remains with the artist! If you want the copyright too, please enquire for information.

Do’s and don’ts

Do I do naughty stuff? Sure. We all need a little warmth right now. Do I do humor? Sure. If you think of something fun. Just be sure my drawing doesn’t offend anyone. It’s meant to make people feel good.

So, you want a Hug from me?
Good. Fill out the form to which you’ll find the link below. You will receive a confirmation once I’ve received the information.

Specialty occaision

If you want a Hug for a special occasion, book well in time. And keep in mind that in this pandemic the mail services can be slow. Should a Hug be held up in the mail, I can send you a digital image that you can print and give as a promise card for the occasion.
