"Where do you get your ideas?"
Ah! The Grand-Daddy of all artistic questions! Where do you get your ideas? Well I could tell you, but then...well, you know ;)
"Do you do painting commissions?"
Yes, and they will be open as of March 1, 2020! New clients welcome! Red Fracture is in the final stages of it's evolution and should be ready to perform all on it's own very SOON.
But I'd still like to hear from you! If you want to discuss an idea with me I'm more than happy to sit down and chat. Drop me a line and we'll get the ball rolling.
When painting commissions are open properly I'll make sure you're the first person I call!
"Who does your printing?"
Printful, a full service, drop-shipping print provide.
Printful is based in the U.S. and the EU. I would have liked to have gone with a Canadian supplier but I couldn't find one that meshed with the Shopify platform.
After trying several other drop shipping companies and testing out their wares, I settled on Printful because the quality of their tees is stellar as is the quality of their printing. I've had a sample of their work for a year now and it still looks amazing!
"How long does shipping take?"
The short answer? It depends.
Shipping times in the US take about 1 week.
Shipping times to Canada take anywhere from 1 to 2 weeks. Where you live and what you've ordered will make a difference. But don't fret! Good things come to those who wait :) Plus, the tracking code you get allows you to track your package through every stage of it's journey. It's like a game!
"How much does shipping COST?"
There's ALWAYS FREE SHIPPING on my originals. Sweet!
Otherwise, it depends on the number of products you purchase and where they're shipping to. But great news! Printful recently reduced all of its shipping rates considerably, especially to Canada and the US. This means that more of your hard earned money stays in your pocket while you get to enjoy the stylish looks of Red Fracture swag!

"What materials do you use in your originals?"
I use Golden Fluid Acrylics for all of my airbrush work, Derwent and Faber-Castell pencils for the details, Borden and Riley #234 paper for all my small, framed works, some illustration board for bigger pieces and, of course, canvas from reputable retailers when I work on a stretched painting; no prefab canvases, I build my own.
I'm producing quality and pushing longevity when I paint. It's gotta last AND look beautiful too!
