    Important : Once an order has been placed (and a deposit paid) you can cancel it within 48 hours. After that we aren't able to cancel your order (even if we haven't started with your illustration yet). The reason for this is that we only can take a handful of house illustration commissions at a time. If you order one, someone else can't! You are required to submit photos for your home illustration at the time of ordering.
