Check out some of these testimonials! :

“I had a great experience working with you, and I was quite happy with the Weekly Rental.

Frankly, the best thing an artist can do is to treat their customers as such, to listen to them, be

responsive, and be a good business leader. You did all that. Asked the right questions, set the

right expectations [...] Thank you. - Jake”

“It was a sheer pleasure to have worked with you, as your prices were reasonable, the art was

fantastic, and you seem to have a knack for reaching into my head and putting onto paper what I

was imagining.  - Patrick

Hello, and thank you for inquiring about renting Mitti for a week!

Here we have a FAQs set up to hopefully answer any questions.

Q: What do I get?

A : Five days, with a new one-character, fully digital piece of art every weekday.

Multiple characters, traditional work can all be added for as little as $50 each.

Q : How does this week work? 

Step 1 : I receive an email at with which week(s)

you’d like in them. I respond to this email, confirming your week(s). By sending

me your request, you have stated that you have read these FAQs, understand

 the rules, and agree to abide by them. 

Step 2) A non-refundable deposit of $100 is due at least one month before

your week begins, to secure your slot reservation.

Step 3) At least two weeks prior to the start of your week, I receive an

email with a description of what you’d like to see for each day. I respond

with a final notice of amount due. If I do not receive all five ideas,

references, and payment in full before your week begins, your week

will be considered forfeit.

Step 4) Your week begins! For five days in a row, I will post a new piece

of art for you on my account on FA, DA and tumblr. The low-res image will be

 posted. (see Step 5)  Due to the nature of these commissions, I cannot

send preview sketches, or make edits on work after it has already been

posted, for any reason. 

Step 5) Once your week is over, I send you an email containing all the

-hi-res versions of the art posted, suitable for printing.

Step 6) Dance!

Q : How much does this cost?

A : Prices start at $75 a day, or $375 for the week. A non-refundable deposit of

$100 is due when we agree on a week that will work for you.

Other charges include :

Extra Character(s) : +$50 per character per day, limit 3 characters total per day

Backgrounds : +$50+ per bg per day, depending on complexity.

Traditional Media : +$40 for 8.5”x11, +$25 for 6” x 8”. Your choice of marker,

watercolor, colored pencil, spray paint, acrylic, inkwash, or mixed media. Please

check out my tumblr or FA gallery for examples.

Comics : +$45 per page for color, +$20 per page in b/w.

Limit 5 total characters. One page per day.

Livestreaming your artwork : +$10 a day. I can livestream either

traditional or digital art.

Q : Are there any discounts available?

A : YES! Discounts are as follows:

10% Discount : Toony Characters, or Ponies!

Examples of toony art : Here, here, or here.

Examples of Pony Art  : Here,  here, or here.

If you’d like your character drawn in a more toony style or as an MLP-stlye pony,

 enjoy a 10% off discount from both base fees and all additional fees for that day.

Q: Can I pay in installments? 

A: YES! In order to pay in installments, I must know what you’d like me to draw

for your week ahead of time, BEFORE you start making payments. 

When paying with installments, the $100 non-refundable deposit will be

considered your first payment. Payments can be made weekly or biweekly,

and the amount per payment period can be negotiated. All payments are non-refundable.

Late payments will incur a 7% late fee per day it is late. (E.g.,if a payment

 of $100 is due on Sunday, but it’s not paid until Monday, it’ll be $107.

Tuesday will be $114.50, Wednesday will be $122.50, and so on)

Your entire week must be paid off before your week starts! If you have any questions or need clarification, please let me know.

Q : Can I rent for more than one week?

A : Absolutely! Let me know what weeks you’d like, and as long as they’re

available, you can have as many as you like.

Q : If I would like traditional work, will I receive the originals?

A: Of course! I'll wait till the end of the week then ship you all the originals.

Q: Will you ever sell prints of my commissions?

A : That depends. If you do NOT want me to sell prints of your commissions,

just let me know up front and it won't happen. If I don’t hear from you on

the matter, I will assume that it’s okay with you for me to sell prints.

Otherwise, I will most likely choose some, at my discretion, to sell at

conventions as prints. It is important to note that while I will honor any

request to not sell prints of your commission, I still retain full rights to

 the work. This is true of virtually all commissions.  If you’d like to

purchase the rights to the work, that can be negotiated.

Q : What weeks are you open?

A :Please CLICK HERE for a schedule UPDATED FOR 2015

NOTE : Rows listed as “Maybe” mean I don’t have solid information on when

events surrounding those weeks are happening (or I don’t know if I’m going for

sure) and I don’t know if I’ll be available for those weeks. Information will be added

when I receive it.  

Q : I'm sold! How do I reserve a week?

A : Simply shoot an email over to mittymandi[at]gmail[dot]com, letting me

know which week you'd like, and we'll work from there! By sending me an

email, you have read and agreed to everything on this document.
