The Art of David Rankine   ART


How to Commission me: For any project - gift, commercial art, commemorative pieces, calligraphy, book plates, specialized and personalized stationary and cards....anything at all! - please contact me via the information shown on the "Contacting Me" page. The procedure is fairly painless! Have a rough budget prepared and after a discussion of the project, I will send you (by mail or e-mail) a rough of the project. We will also discuss a time frame and any other personal details. I specialize in personalizing all pieces given as gifts by working elements of the receiver's life/personality into the art.
