What does your invoicing process look like and how do you follow up with what still needs to be done?
Most artists have a pretty informal process when it comes to invoicing:
It’s super simple. I just do something in Excel or Word, put together a little spreadsheet with the size of the walls or the paintings and charge them that way. I charge per square foot for my murals so it’s easy for me to be like, This wall has this many square feet, so this is how much it’s going to be. For my paintings it’s just time and size. For larger-scale stuff that’s not super detailed I won’t charge as much as the smaller pieces that have tons of detail.
Whenever I’m trying to figure out everything I have to paint I’ll go through my Venmo or Zelle account and just keep records of who paid and who hasn’t paid and what I have to finish.
