Matthew Conway


frequently asked questions 

What materials do you use?

My work is color pencil on toned archival printmaking paper, but am also trained in oil, acrylic, watercolor, and soft pastel. 

How much do you charge for a commission?

$300 for a 15x22 inch drawing plus shipping.

How do I arrange a commission?

email me at and we can arrange it there. I will be accepting new commissions in January of 2019. 

What is your process?

I work from photo sources: I usually either have a photo shoot with clients myself when convenient or have clients send me photos to work with. 

What kind of photos do you need?

I ask for full figure photos, from head to toe. Most of my work is nude, but for commissions I leave that choice to the client. High resolution and well lit photos work the best. If you are having trouble, i suggest having a friend or lover help you. I do not work with mirror selfie images. 


How long does it take?

Generally between 2-4 weeks, depending on how many commissions currently in process, though I may be able to accommodate a specific deadline. 

What forms of payment do you accept?

My preference is Venmo (Matthew-ConwayIII) but I also accept PayPal or the Cash app. 

Do you ever draw people for free?

Almost never. If I have someone model for me outside of a commission, I put the work up in my web store for sale. I do not accept unsolicited photos, and non-paid drawing requests will be politely declined.
