General

May I commission or contract you for some work?
Usually, yes. It depends on the type of work that you’d like to get done. Feel free to contact me with details about your project to see if I have the time and I can give you a more educated quote.

How much does an art commission generally cost?
$300 CAD and up for full colour illustrations. Prices vary greatly depending on the scope of the project, media, research, timeline, etc. Please contact me about specifics.

Do you do art trades?
Sometimes. It varies depending on my current schedule.

Do you take art requests? / Will you do something for me for free?
No. I do not do any speculative work.

Do you sell your originals?
Yes! Whenever I make something tangible at least.

Where can I buy art prints?
Check out my shop for some store links.

Technique

What do you use to create your digital work?
Clip Studio Paint (Manga Studio), Paint Tool SAI, and a Wacom Cintiq 12WX.

Art Usage Policies

May I use your art on my web site?
Yes, however you must properly give me credit (as either Iversia or Jodie Struthers), and link back to this site.

May I get something you created tattooed on myself?
Yes! It’s your body, so go for it! Be sure to send me a photograph when it’s done. ;) The only thing I ask is that you do not use any imagery that other people have commissioned from me. It’s possible that they own the reproduction rights. When in doubt about a specific image, just ask.

May I put your art on a t-shirt/other merchandise?
No.

Education and Promotion

Did you go to art school?
Yes. I went to the Alberta College of Art & Design where I got a Bachelor of Design (BDes) degree in Visual Communication Design program.

Will you ever do anything just “for the exposure” / “because it’ll look good in your portfolio”?
No. Let me reiterate: I do not do any speculative work. It’s unethical. I will only do things for “free” if it’s a) something I really want to do, or b) I have nothing better to do.

Miscellaneous

What does the name “Iversia” mean?
It’s a name that I made up for myself in the 90s. It’s derived from the word universe.

I think I know you…
It’s entirely possible. :) I’ve had many aliases over the years. Spectra Diabolus of Blood Wolf Bay (Sinlahekin represent!) and Kakosenas Shriker are the most notable.
