About Jon Forde
Hi, I’m Jon Forde, a professional designer and illustrator. You may be familiar with some of my work already, as it is currently sold under licence around the world on auto enthusiast sites like Pistonheads etc. I do a variety of commercial design and illustrative work in the corporate sector for web, film, press and fashion too, but what I really enjoy doing is:
Private commissions – portraits of individual’s cherished cars and bikes. If you want me to create bespoke artwork of either your or a friend or loved one’s vehicle, drop me a line at Private enquiries Prices start at around £60 and vary depending on the complexity of your request.

Your car portrait. The process is easy.
1. Email me at Private enquiries with your car details. Make, model, colour, year and if you can, a good side-on photo so I can get a feel for your particular car. Include photos of any mods you’ve made or web links to the specific items. I research quite extensively for each job, but photos of YOUR car really help me get things right.
2. Once I know what you want, I will give you a price for your personal artwork. Most commissions are around £120. Prices come down if it is a car I have illustrated before, as the research and a lot of the technical drawing is already done. Prices go up if you have extensive modifications or complicated graphics.
3. It will then take me a few days to complete your artwork. I will send you files for your final approval, following which, I will dispatch your print. The print and delivery are included in your price.
Any of the artworks you buy from me here are produced individually on environmentally friendly Archival Grade matt art paperstocks. The ink is applied at 1800 dpi giving the final image an intense colour and vibrancy. Its a personally monitored process which achieves fantastic detail, texture and brilliance and displays the artwork in the best possible way. The final prints are light-fast to an exceptional standard.
Jon Forde prints are available now at A3 (420x297mm) and dispatched flat in protective cover. I don’t roll them!
NOTE These are sold unframed.
