The Portrait Quality

Collaborate with Kevin to Create Custom Pencil Art Portraits for your Home or Office. Create color portraits with Swarovski crystal designs.

Black and white portraits are drawn with graphite (pencil) on 100% cotton fiber, acid-free, 400 Series Bristol Board. 

Color portraits are drawn with color pencils on color, textured, acid-free art board.

For color portraits, add a Swarovski Crystal design (View our Crystal Embellishment Collection)

 

All pencil art portraits are framed in 16" x 20" and 24" x 30" distinctive black gallery wall frames with glass fronts. Hanging hardware is pre-attached. The pencil art is drawn on paper and art board sizes 11" x 14", 12" x 18", and 16" x 20".

 

Note: Portraits will not display the Kevin Johnson Art watermark.

Art to Inspire Messages


Clients provide Photographs along with Messages as inspiration for the artist.

Those Messages (e.g., stories, songs, poems, quotes) are adhered to the back of the portrait as a secret keepsake.

At a minimum, the main photograph should be provided as an 8" x 10" high quality print or as a digital file with a resolution of 300 dpi. Email the photographs to info@kevinjohnsonart.com.

 

NOTE: The best quality photographs are taken at a distance of at least 4 ft. in proper lighting with a camera. Selfies taken with mobile devices result in photographs with certain parts of the face appearing larger.
