The Wall Street Journal stated that a book is judged by its cover in 3 seconds or less. Your wisest marketing move is to invest in a great cover that makes people notice, value, and desire your book


Your cover art is not the place to cut corners. I do my very best to make sure that your book stands out in today's competitive marketplace. Putting your book out there with bad cover art is like burying a needle in a haystack...

Many pieces are currently available, mostly 11x14-13x16 inch Prismacolor Paintings (like Helen of Troy) and pencil portraits (like Arriba #2) followed in number by Acrylic, Prismacolor and pastel mixed media all on #400 Strathmore Bristol Board ranging from $700.00-$1400. 00 USD and Oil Paintings on canvas ranging from $1999.00 - 10,000.00 USD.  Pieces that have never been rendered in oil can be commissioned in 16x20 inch size on canvas for 50% down and delivered in under 90 days with signed certificates of authenticity aka legal documents pledging never to render it in that size and media again to ensure premium collectability and investment potential.


David can also do a completely new picture designed in digital media (for more on this visit his digital media page) and when we approve the photo-montage, he uses it as reference to render it in oil on canvas. No surprises.  Existing Artwork is shipped very well protected and go out to you immediately via Fed Ex or USPS Express mail upon receipt of payment at our expense. All new creations cost a bit more depending on what is involved. All new creations and rendering photo montages into art on paper are a LOT of fun with e-mail attachments and digital cameras.  Many of Johnson's Digital Mixed Media creations (below left and right) displayed in this site are currently available to be rendered in oil on canvas. Each design will only be rendered in oil once at this size and can be delivered in as little as 90 days

     Please let me know which images you'd like to use and where and how you want to use them - you know - posters or book covers or greeting cards or etc and things like the size of print run, length of term the license will cover. There is a $99. U.S.D. minimum order. (This is my lowest price - the Educational or non-profit use discount) With this specific info we'll be able to quickly make you up a custom price based upon your specific usage, term, and scale. It’s very quick and simple-
