Pen/Ink on Paper Commission


Your subject of choice, hand-drawn with pen & ink (Free Shipping)

SKU: N/A Category:


This custom pen & ink drawing will be a keepsake for years to come!

BEFORE you’ve purchased this item, I suggest you email me (Julie at so we can discuss what you’re looking for and when I can have it finished. Here are some of the questions I’ll be asking you:

  • What subject do you want to be drawn?
  • What size would you like it to be?
  • Where will it be displayed?
  • What color frame and mat will you use?
  • Are there any special details you’d like included in the artwork?
  • Where would you like the artwork to be mailed to?


Now that you know what subject you’d like, decide on a size. The size ordered corresponds to the size of the paper. The image will be drawn slightly smaller to allow for a matting margin. If you’re looking for a different size, let me know!

  • X-Small: 4″ x 6″ (looks nice with a mat in a 5×7 frame)
  • Small: 5″ x 7″ (looks nice in a 5×7 frame)
  • Medium: 6″ x 8″ (looks nice with a mat in an 8×10 frame)
  • Large: 8″ x 10″ (looks nice in an 8×10 frame)
  • X-Large: 9″ x 12″ (looks nice with a mat in an 11×14 frame)

Matting and Framing

I can mat and frame the artwork (contact me for approximate cost) or you can do it yourself.

If you’re framing the artwork yourself, I suggest using a coupon at Michaels or Hobby Lobby. Hobby Lobby has great prices on archival grade custom mats!

If I’m framing and/or matting the artwork, I’ll use an archival mat and a standard off-the-shelf frame. (Keep in mind that standard, off-the-shelf frames typically do not have UV glass in them. So, if you hang the artwork where it will see the direct sun, it may fade slowly over time.)

If I need to ship the artwork, I cannot offer free shipping on art with frames. Since they include glass, they are very fragile and costly to ship. However, I can still have the art matted and the mat cut to fit a standard size frame. Then you can pick out a frame at Michaels or Hobby Lobby. Standard Frame sizes tend to be 5×7, 8×10, 11×14, 12×16, and on up.

Backorder? When will this artwork be completed?

The status of all my commission items is “backorder” because I don’t have a way to schedule commission work on this platform. Generally, I create each work of art in the sequence it is ordered and your ‘place in line’ is set when you pay for your item. I have to limit the number of commissions I can take each week, so if you need the item by a certain date, be sure to contact me ahead of time to find out if that’s possible!

Purchasing a work of art does not usually include reproduction rights, or a license to print copies of the artwork. As the artist, Julie Abels maintains the right to make additional copies of the artwork. If you would like reproduction rights, please email Julie about creating a contract to include reproduction rights.
