We have been getting a few requests in lately that ask for a specific artist. If you do in fact get the artist you asked for, congratulations, you are lucky. Each request is assigned to the next available artist in the order they were received.
Some artists are more in demand than others. That's great. We love getting fan mail or even nice comments linked to our posts. If you absolutely want a specific artist create your sketch, you can contact them directly and ask. Just click their profile link in the upper left corner of this site. Drop them an email and work something out.
You, the customer, get a digital version of the sketch. All original artwork created through sketch-it remains the property of the artist that creates the sketch. That is, unless you contact the artist them and buy it.
