General
 

Where do you find your inspiration?
Honestly, not "everywhere". I find I am personally more inspired by models, but more so attitudes. I'm inspired by lucid feels (kaleidoscopes, mirrors, glitter, patterns, 3D) which I primarily build and layer together from photos and already thought of styles and then pull it apart and put my spin on it, I find a lot of my references on Instagram and Pinterest. Inspiration is your own, so are your ideas. People can steal your work but they can't steal your imagination and creativity.

What materials do you use and why?
I have a few staples; Mechanical pencils (pacers) - I like them to stay sharp all the time for my fine details, I use generally HB - 2B. Pencils (Staedtler or Faber Castell), generally for larger areas, just quicker. Paper stumps/blenders, I love to use these to get smooth, sharp details. Kneaded eraser, looks like blu-tac - I can manipulate it to any shape, to fit any area I'm working on. Arches Hot Pressed Watercolour Paper Smooth. Incredibly smooth, quality paper - my favourite staple to date.

Do you take on commissions?
I currently do create commissioned work. I specialise in working primarily with musicians (album/poster/merch artwork) and fashion/commercial work. I do not specialise in family/friend/pet portraits, but I would be happy to try and help you find the right fit where possible.

How can I contact you?
Email is best via hello@lusidart.com, however I also check my Instagram and Lusid Art Facebook daily and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

Purchasing and shipping
 

What should you expect purchasing a Lusid Art piece...
From start to finish I am incredibly meticulous with my work. When purchasing a piece you will receive a limited edition print, hand signed and numbered on quality 185GSM paper. I work very closely with my printer to reproduce the best possible print of my work, I print on 185GSM to get fine details printed and to prevent creasing when unrolling prints. I generally only print 5 of each piece to keep my work just as special when it starts in my hands and is delivered to yours. Originals come with a certificate of authenticity and signed on Arches paper.

Delivery times
Although I have an openly passionate dislike for AusPost, all orders will be shipped next working day. All Aus orders are posted free of charge with standard shipping (all tracked), please allow just over a week for delivery. If you would like express - please choose the express option or contact me directly via hello@lusidart.com. International orders should take 2 weeks, but believe me when I say I watch (especially international) shipping like a hawk. If your order has not arrived again please do not hesitate to contact me if you have not already received a tracking number.

Returns
I do not accept returns on change of mind. Please choose very carefully when deciding to on a print for yourself or as a gift. Replacement or refunds are only made if the piece is damaged or lost, please email me via hello@lusidart.com if any problems arise on receiving your order.
