How to buy a Drawing

Well, from me that is.

From time to time people contact me to ask how they can buy a drawing, or people that buy one tell me that it took them a while to figure out how to do it. Now, I don’t want to plaster ‘Buy me!’ messages all over my blog, but clearly if it is not obvious how to do so even to people who already made up their mind that they want to own one of my drawings, something is missing. So here comes the comprehensive guide to buying my stuff:

Most of the drawings you see here are for sale. Yes, even the sketchbooks (but they are pricey). If you see something you like you can simply contact me to find out if it is still available, and I am going to answer you with all the details. To get an idea: individual drawings cost between 100€ and 300€ (depending on size, with ~Din A 4 at 150€ and ~Din A 3 at 300€), and sketchbooks start at 900€ (depending on the size and number of pages and the kinds of sketches inside). I take great care to protect my drawings on their way, and in many cases I might be able to send them already matted. Shipping depends on size and destination, but it is free for smaller sized works inside the EU. Payment methods are Paypal or direct bank transfer (Überweisung).

Another, less personal option is to browse my Etsy store. There you will find drawings that I have already prepared for sale, most of them matted, and complete with full information on size, media, and shipping costs. On Etsy you pay via Paypal or credit card. (Here is a guide to the payment process.) (Here a similar guide written in German by a patron after finding out for himself.)

I also take commissions, can send you a drawing already matted and framed, and am willing to accept payment in several rates. However, such things depend on the specific situation, and I cannot give ‘rules of thumb’ for them yet. If you consider taking me up on one of them, please contact me directly. The same goes for studio visits.

Oh, and if you happen to be in or come through Berlin, starting from the 15 February you can of course also come to my exhibition and have a look at my drawings in person.

Example of a Commission

Just this week I finished a commission for a friend of mine who wanted a slightly larger version of one of my travel sketches—here some of the stages that led to the finished drawings (photo only, because it is too big for my scanner…)

  1. tolle site, das mit dem painting in progress ist eine super-idee. Ich drücke Dir die Daumen, dass viele Menschen etwas von Dir kaufen. Warum eigentlich in english? Abgesehen davon, daß es cool klingt.

  3. ja, deine bilder sind sehr interessant! dass du sie in englisch vorstellst ist für dich vielleicht normal oder cool. vergiss aber bitte nicht, dass es viele
    ältere menschen und kunstinteressierte gibt, die immer noch kein englisch können.
    schöne grüße

  4. Danke!

    Der Grund für die Englischsprachigkeit ist schlicht, dass fast alle Menschen, mit denen ich regelmäßig über das Zeichnen kommuniziere, Englisch sprechen (mir fällt gerade kein Gegenbeispiel ein), ob sie nun in Europa, Malaysia oder den USA wohnen, und kaum einer Deutsch. Ich will auch nicht unbedingt den Rest meines Lebens hier verbringen, und für mich ist das eine wichtige Weise in meinen Kontakten weniger an dieses Land gebunden zu sein.

  5. […] Oona Leganovic is a fantastic artist. In the past days I had the humbling honor of looking through some of her sketchbooks which re-enforced that impression. Sadly, she’s also not a very well off artist. Since I am ridiculously poor myself I can’t do anything about that, but you can. If you follow this link, you can find out how to buy her drawings. If you live in or near Berlin or are planning a visit within the next few weeks, you can go see her exhibition at Kaufbar Berlin. If you don’t trust my word (and why should you), check out her portfolio here. Amazed? Forgot where the guideline to buy her work was? It’s here. She also has an etsy store you can access here. Thank you for your attention. As you were. Most of the drawings you see here are for sale. Yes, even the sketchbooks (but they are pricey).
