Hello and welcome to my mural page. I will be your guide! Here you will find details on the process of commissioning a mural from me and how to bring a Will Eskridge original mural to your space! Examples are show below!
- Exploration Conversation
Give me a call or shoot me an email with a description of your project, including the size of the wall and brief description of the space and creative direction for the artwork. If you are able to e-mail me photos or architectural renderings of the space before our first phone call, that is ideal.
For a cost estimate, please contact me for a free consultation regarding your mural project. Murals range from $15 – $25 per square foot. Factors include whether the mural site is inside or outside, type of surface (drywall, brick, concrete, etc.) and others. After an in-depth exploration conversation (see above) either via phone call or onsite, I will provide you with a written work estimate.
- Signed Contract Agreement and Design Deposit
In my proposal for work I will include a contract. If you would like to move forward with the design phase for the work, please send the signed contract along with the design deposit back to me. The design deposit can vary based on the size of the project, but typically the deposit is about $500. Once I receive the design deposit and signed contract I will begin work on designs for your wall and schedule the project.
- Design Process and Sketch
After the contract has been signed and design deposit has been made, I will begin work on an initial digital sketch of the mural. I will then send you the initial sketch for you to review and we then have a follow up conversation to integrate any of your feedback. Remember, the mockup is simply a roadmap and not an exact literal interpretation of what the final project will look like. This allows for the slight nuances of the creative energy and artistic process to take place making your mural truly memorable.
- Mural Deposit
A deposit, typically 50% of my total fee, is due two weeks prior to the first day of onsite painting. This allows for ordering of supplies and confirms the scheduling dates. At this time, we will review the mural design concept again and see if either of us have had any new thoughts or ideas on the mural design. We will confirm the start date and time, and confirm any preparation of the space as necessary.
Once I let you know when I am close to completion, about 90% complete, and we review the work together to see if there is anything that was left out or doesn’t feel “just right”. We create a list of final tweaks that are needed, and, assuming it is within the original scope, I make the final adjustments. Then the mural is complete.
- Final Payment
A final payment of the full remaining balance is due upon completion of the mural.
You and I will work together to come up with a solid design that incorporates your personal colors, preferred subject matter, and home styling to bring you a celebration of love that you will enjoy for years. Send me an email and let’s talk about the initial ideas you have in mind! (or use the contact form below!)
