//QUICK FAQ//

-Please direct sales-inquiries regarding pieces posted below to the respective galleries currently holding them. Their contact info is listed in each post.

-If you have a specific question about a piece that the galleries won't be able to answer you can contact me at jawcooper(at)gmail(dot)com.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-I get many inquiries regarding drawings and sketches that I have posted online. If you are looking for a way to support me please consider purchasing one of the pieces already listed through galleries below. If you are dead set on purchasing a specific un-listed drawing you may email me to inquire on its availability; expect a price in the 400-800$ range or higher, plus shipping/packing/etc.

-Commissions: I accept personal commissions with a budget of 5,000$ or higher, and commercial commissions with a budget of 3,000$ or higher, only as my interest and availability allow. Please note that I'm usually booked up a few months in advance so contact me early to reserve availability.

-Tattoos: I do not accept tattoo design commissions. I strongly suggest commissioning an original custom design from the actual tattoo artist who will be executing the piece as they know best the limitations of the medium and how to fit a design to your body. Really good tattoo artists are almost always highly skilled illustrators and designers themselves so being asked to execute another artists's work for a tattoo can be insulting. It's far better to find a tattoo artist who's own work you love and commission them to do what they do best. Sure it will cost more but art costs money and this particular art will live on your body until you die, so don't skrimp.
    If you are absolutely dead-set on using my work for your tattoo I insist that you make it your responsibility to ensure that the tattoo artist credits me when posting the work online or in their portfolio- even if they have altered my work. If you like my work enough to have it permanently on your body please be responsible in ensuring that I am properly credited; this is to prevent plagiarism from my designs circulating out there on the internet without my name attached to them, not because I want to make your life or your tattoo artist's life difficult. I would love to see photos when it's healed!

-Prints: I do not make prints to-order. I release limited-edition runs every few months, stay tuned to my various social media accounts for news.
