Commissioning artwork can seem daunting.

Lee McGuire Art has turned commissions into a simple, fun and collaborative process. I don’t just take your request and email you with a final artwork and expect you to be happy with it!

We begin with an online form - the fastest way to narrow down exactly what you are looking for - followed by free consultation emails so we can discuss everything from creating an idea together from scratch to improving existing commission ideas with more interesting compositions, lighting and colour schemes.

“I was lucky to find Lee McGuire on line, and follow up with a commission for a science fiction book cover. His rates are reasonable and his artistic skills and talents are outstanding. I had a picture in my head from my novel that I wanted him to duplicate and he produced an awesome picture that was exactly what I desired. The process of producing the picture was easy and effective for me the client. He started with a rough sketch and he followed my instructions exactly, sending new drafts as the picture developed. He was easy to work with and anxious for advice. The final product was great! I recommend him highly.”
- Marshall S Thomas, author of the Soldier of the Legion and Prophet of ConFree sci-fi series.

"I hired Lee McGuire Art to design the cover for the sequel of my sci-fi time-travel book. I had seen his work on his website and was convinced he could come up with an illustration of a time machine that looked real. Not only did he do an awesome job on that he also drew in detail the basement lab where the machine was hooked up. That was over and beyond what I had expected.
Afterward, Lee worked with me every step of the way to make the cover fit the KDP guidelines for paperback and Kindle.
I love my cover and I highly recommend him for any artwork needing to be done."

- Kathleen Ballantine Watson, author of the Destination Unknown series.

About Lee McGuire

Hello there, I’m a self-taught full-time illustrator from Scotland.

I create original artwork & art commissions all live-streamed on Twitch every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 7pm UK time (2PM Eastern time). Please come hang out and say hello, ask questions, chill out and talk, listen to music, and be a part of our amazing community!

Here’s a little more about my life and what I do:

As early as I could remember, I loved to draw! I was the kid always getting in trouble in class for doodling. Naturally I wanted to go on to study this in University.

That plan got put on hold when one night as I was waiting for the last train home I was assaulted. My skull was broken in three places around my eye and jaw. After multiple surgeries I was left with permanent double-vision to this day. It took me 8 years to pick up a pencil again.

Once I felt mentally and physically ready, I began a few years of practising and honing my art skills before starting my professional art career in 2017, simply by being commissioned for the odd portrait for family and friends.
Business quickly grew as people loved the results and recommended my artwork to their friends. I began advertising online, found lots of interested clients and started shipping my commissions worldwide, to Europe, America, and even Australia! I quit my retail job the very next day and now work full-time as a freelance artist!

Currently my days revolve around commissions, dog walks, art studies and creating original art. I work from home so I can have my “muse” close by for constant inspiration, meet Sam the West Highland Terrier:
