Are the paintings produced by hand?
YES! All of Tim’s original paintings are hand drawn and hand painted. Prints are made using technology but the original art piece is produced in the traditional way. Tim is now producing some artwork digitally but this accounts for around 30% of new material, the remaining 70% is still hand produced.
I can’t see the person I want as an artwork in the gallery?
If you can’t find the icon you are looking for please email us as we may have them in our back catalogue. If we don’t then you could commission Tim to paint your desired picture for you. See our commissions page for more details or drop us a line.
I need the item by tomorrow, can you do that?
Providing you contact us before 2pm on a week day we can usually get your purchase to you for next working day for a small extra delivery charge. Please phone us if this is the case.
How much is a commission?
Each commission is priced differently depending on image content, canvas size and several other factors. Prices start from around £180.00 for a small canvas with one subject matter and go up in price along with canvas size and number of subjects in the composition. Contact us for a free, no obligation quote.
How long do commissions take?
During busy periods, such as the run up to Christmas Tim can have up to a three month waiting list for commissions but at quieter times it may only be a few weeks. We strongly suggest you get in touch as early as possible if you are considering a commission for a specific date.
How can I track my order?
You will receive an order confirmation once your order has been successfully transmitted. If your order has not been delivered within the stated delivery times (see delivery section) please contact us by phone or email.
When will my order will shipped?
Orders placed Monday-Friday before 2pm BST will begin processing that day, excluding holidays, and usually shipped within 1 business day. All orders placed after 2pm will begin processing the next business day. Orders placed on Friday after 2pm will begin processing on the following Monday. We will contact you with a follow-up email if the merchandise you have selected is not currently in stock.
Can I work for you?
We are a very small team at CTM but during the summer months, when we are trading at festivals, we sometimes need staff members to help us at these events. If you are interested in this please email us with your CV, a recent photo and some information about yourself.
The print I wanted has sold out, will you be printing more?
No. We never reprint a limited edition run so once sold out that print has gone for ever. This makes the prints more collectable and special so remember to buy early!
Do you have a permanent gallery or shop?
Not at the moment. We did have a small gallery in Bristol from 2006-2009 but now we solely trade online or at music festivals.
I am an artist, will you show my work?
Maybe! We are always on the lookout for new, exciting artwork so please feel free to send us a few examples of your work along with an up to date CV and some information about you and your artwork. We are going to have an Artist of the Month section coming soon with a new artist displaying their work with us each month.
I saw some work like Tim’s in another gallery, was it his work?
Tim does show his work in a handful of galleries apart from Cut the Mustard but sadly he also has imitators of his work. If you see something that looks like Tim’s work always ask the venue to verify if it’s an official piece or simply keep it guaranteed by purchasing from us!
