Precision, paper magic and pencil power:
There is nothing like a pencil for delivering the subtlest of nuances and the finest detail in any image, all the more if the image happens to be of a living being. Hence, it is by far my favoured tool for bringing to life unique pieces of art, purposely created to reach out and reflect loud and clear that intimate, rock-solid bond between people and their pets.
Animal Portraits by Gabriel
In this day and age, where taking simple photographs is so easy for
everyone, a hand-drawn picture of the animal that you love is quite
special. It is elegant and refined and, most of all, absolutely unique.
Whether it be cat or dog, horse, dragon or budgie, you can book and
commission his/her portrait with ease following the indications provided
- choose a good quality photograph of your pet
- UPLOAD IT HERE: Pet Portrait Commission Form
- include his/her exact name spelled in capitals along with your own
name and address
- you will receive a reply email stating whether the photo is good enough
to work with and the amount of time to wait in the commissions queue
You can then decide to proceed with booking your pet's place in the
queue. Do keep in mind that each portrait requires time and attention.

To officially book your pet in the queue, a third of the final fee is
required. The total cost of one portrait is 150,00 euros (which
for European countries includes shipping costs and delivery by courier),
hence the booking fee is 50,00 euros per portrait.
The booking fee is non-refundable and the completion of
the cost shall be sent at the latest 4 working days after viewing the
emailed, umprintable image of the completed portrait. This is to ensure
that the commissioner is entirely satisfied with the purchase. Should this
not be, for any reason, the artist shall keep the work done and is entitled
to sell it or do with the work as he wishes at any time, prior removal of
the name of the animal, if indicated in any way, and after the above
mentioned 4 working days.
