Custom Portraits

Notify me when this product is available:

A colourful portrait of your beloved pet in my popular "mugshot" style! My goal is to create art that fully captures your pet's character first and foremost, yet also feels fun and playful. Price includes a 16x16" high quality stretched canvas print, shipped worldwide.  

Custom portrait openings are released on the 1st of each month. Once purchased, please submit photos as soon as possible (scroll down for photo guidelines). Your portrait will be completed within three weeks of receiving your photos, and I will send a low-res jpg once it is finished, before sending it to the printer. Once I get the go-ahead from you, it will be printed and shipped (allow 1-2 weeks within USA, 2-4 weeks for international shipments). You will receive tracking info as soon as the portrait ships.

You will receive a confirmation email after purchasing with all of the details, including how to submit photos and how to inform me if you would like a specific background colour or any special details included (I have done portraits of dogs in their favourite collars and cats in party hats, for example!)

Timing and delivery

The portraits take three weeks to complete, from the date I receive your photos (I will confirm when I have everything that I need to proceed). In three weeks you'll receive an emailed low-res .jpg file of the finished portrait. Canvas printing and shipping takes approximately 2 weeks in the USA, 3-4 weeks in Canada, and 4-5 weeks worldwide. Free shipping is included in the portrait price. 


How to submit photos

How to submit photos

(Note: This info will also be emailed to you when you purchase a portrait)

I will require a minimum of 5 good photos of your pet in order to fully capture the physical features, and also the individual personality. I can't proceed unless I have enough photos to use for proper reference. It's important to send photos that show them in a good light, fairly close-up, and in focus. Please make sure they are photos that you feel really look like your pet, as this is what your portrait will be based on! Also, be sure to submit photos with the expression you'd like me to capture (based on the examples shown here, I would be doing the portrait with an open mouth and the tongue out). It's best to have at least three straight-on photos to work with, and a few photos of each side of the dog or cat's face is helpful as well, if you have them. The more photos the better! You can email your photos to beatrixandmidge@gmail.com, and if I need more, I'll get in touch within 2 days. Let me know if you have any questions!

If you have a social media account for your pet, you can simply send me the handle, and I'll check to make sure that I can find what I need. Please send me the link to a few photos that you feel look the most like your pet!
