“A hybrid deal model has been developed by CJunqueira. Commissioned work usually is at least 5 to 10 times more expensive than serial prints. And some people just can’t afford it. On the other hand, there are occasions when the artwork has a commercial appeal. In those cases an arrangement can be made for the commissioning customer to buy the # 0 (zero) copy of the series for a better bargain.”
