We're a friendly go-between between patrons and artists
We created ArtCorgi to empower everyday people to commission unique art as gifts for friends, colleagues, and family (not to mention themselves!) with minimal hassle and maximum enjoyment, and to aid up-and-coming artists in their careers, helping them gain more coverage, new clients and fans, and fair payment for their work. Think of ArtCorgi as your friendly artist and client liaison. ArtCorgi delivers a safe, fun, and fair experience for all parties involved.
Using ArtCorgi, you can commission work from artists based on specific samples and styles of their work. This enables you to have a much better understanding of what you’ll get in return, and gives artists maximum control (though you’ll still be given a rough sketch to approve and comment on).
We are oriented around digital-only commissions, meaning you are only given digital files of the work your artist creates, regardless of whether it was made digitally or using physical media. With digital files at your disposal, you can easily order canvas prints, cards, posters, or shirts from the vendor of your choice at minimal cost (though we also offer limited print options). You can also easily convert your commissions into desktop and phone backgrounds, screensavers, profile images, and social media cover graphics.
About The Founders
I created ArtCorgi to make it easier for everyday people to commission work, and to enable artists to be paid fairly for their skill and effort.
I am currently a student at the Stanford Graduate School of Business.
My hope is that ArtCorgi empowers more everyday people such as myself to patronize up-and-coming artists by making the process affordable, approachable, and fun. I also hope ArtCorgi inspires people to create unforgettable and unique gifts for friends, colleagues, and family members. Nothing stands out like original artwork!
