Art FAQ

I welcome all questions and don’t mind answering them, but please check if the question is already answered in my FAQ below. If your question is not in the FAQ, either email me at readthinkponder@gmail.com or send me a direct message on Twitter.


FAQ

Can you draw [this character]?

I will only draw characters from books (or other media) that I have enjoyed and liked. However, you are more than welcome to contact me on Twitter and give me a little nudge about what characters you’d love to seen drawn. I cannot promise that I will draw it, but I don’t mind ideas.

Can you draw something for me for free? 

I will not draw art for you for free (even if you are my friend), unless I have explicitly offered to draw something for you. If you like my art, please consider commissioning art from me if my commission requests are open.

I know your commissions are closed, but could you please draw something for me and I will pay you?

You can try and ask, but the likely answer is no.

I am an author/publisher/agent and I am interested in commissioning art from you to promote a book. 

Please email me at readthinkponder@gmail.com so that we can discuss what you are interested in and what I can offer.

What does commission mean?

Here’s the Wikipedia page on commissions, but in essence, it means the act of requesting services from someone in exchange for payment.

Can I repost your art?

Yes but you must give credit that is a) full, b) visible), and c) has my handle (‘readthinkponder’) included. If for Twitter, please retweet my art instead of reposting.

Can I use your art in one of my book reviews?

You must ask me before you do. If I say yes, you must include visible credit to my Instagram.

Diversity

Welcome to my little corner dedicated to diversity in books!

On this page, you will find a list of books I have read that have diversity, book recommendations, discussion posts. Whether you share this goal, you are thinking of reading more diversely, or are curious about what diversity means, I hope this page will help you find what you are looking for.

What does ‘diversity in books’ mean? 

For me, diversity in books encompasses books that are about or explore narratives of people of colour, gender diversity, LGBTQIA+, people with disabilities (including neurodiversity), and so on.

The purpose of this page aligns with my goal to celebrate, promote, and read more books with characters and themes with a diversity of experiences and identities. #Ownvoices books are also celebrated.

What are #ownvoices books? 

#ownvoices books are stories authors have written that are based on their own personal, lived experiences and/or are stories with characters that have the same marginalized identity as the author. For more information, visit this page.
