Marlena is an absolute joy to work with. Her art is simply beautiful. Combine this with her professional attitude, and she’d be an asset to any project!

– Dr. Julian Darius, Sequart Organization and Martian Lit

It was my absolute pleasure to work with Marlena. (…) She captured the essence of my character better than I could have described.  It was a wonderful experience to have her take something I only saw in my mind’s eye and make it into something I could show to others.  Would commission her again in a heartbeat.

-Timothy S. Brannan, The Other Side

I commissioned to do the cover art for my upcoming book. (…) I was nervous because I was being pretty specific. What I got back from Marlena, BLEW ME AWAY! She crafts something out of your thoughts, and guides you through a collaboration process of art and feedback till you hit just the right note.

Jon Ford, Tepris Press

License Options

These distinct licenses offer flexibility, allowing you to choose the most suitable option for your unique needs and preferences.

Private license

My private license is designed for personal use only, allowing you to enjoy your commissioned artwork for individual purposes. This includes creating a single print, sharing it with friends online, or using it as an avatar in your favorite game. It’s important to note that with a private license, you do not have the right to repeatedly reproduce, edit, or use the artwork for any commercial purposes, such as advertising or sales. As the original author, I retain full rights to the commissioned artwork.

Commercial license

For all commissions related to book covers, a commercial license is a requirement. With a commercial license, you gain ownership of the designs, providing you with exclusive rights to reproduce, edit, and use the artwork for any commercial activities. This includes any activities aimed at generating revenue or promoting your product or brand, as they fall under the category of commercial activities.

It’s important to understand that, as the creator, I retain the right to display lower-resolution versions of commissioned book covers, map designs, and other illustrations in my portfolio, websites, and social media channels.
