Animal Crossing Flick: Commissions and what time does Flick leave in New Horizons explained

Everything you need to know about Flick.

Flick is one of the rotating visitors, like K.K. Slider and Gulliver, who will visit your island in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

This punk chameleon will happily take commissions for you, creating sculptures of your favourite Animal Crossing bugs, and will buy bugs from you at much higher prices than Nook's Cranny.

Flick and his departure time in Animal Crossing: New Horizons explained

Flick is the bug obsessed chameleon who will randomly visit your island in New Horizons. When he does visit, Flick will stay on your island till 5am, which is the reset time for your island.


During his visit, you'll be able to sell bugs to Flick and commission him to craft sculptures of your favourite bugs.

Flick also runs the Bug-Off events that occur four times a year, which is the bug version of the Fishing Tourney.

Coming soon is the huge Animal Crossing 2.0 update release date. Until then, if you're new to Animal Crossing, our New Horizons tips can help with the basics. From the off, there's fish and bugs to catch, flowers and fruit to grow with Leif selling seeds, villagers to add or remove and tools such as the new ladder and vaulting pole to collect. Once you have settled in, you'll want to be making as many Bells as possible, start collecting K.K. Slider songs and work on your island star rating, increase your HHA ranking, incorporate Feng Shui into your room design and acquiring kitchen furniture. You can also buy fake art from Redd, use the Dream Suite and island backup.

Flick's commissions in Animal Crossing: New Horizons explained

Flick loves bugs so much that he will offer to make you sculptures based on any you suggest.

Note, these are different to Redd's art, which can be displayed in the Museum. Instead, these are for your own personal collection to be placed around the house and island wherever you please.


To commission a sculpture from Flick, you must first catch three of the specific bug you wish to have a statue of.

Once you've caught all three of these bugs, find Flick and, when talking to him, select the option, 'Tell me about your art.' and select the bugs that you wish to use.


It's important to know that you will lose these bugs forever, so, if you're in need of Bells, you might be better off selling these bugs to Flick. Luckily Flick will double check that you're sure about your decision, before accepting the bugs.

Flick can only accept one sculpture commission at a time and it will take one day for him to make your art, with it arriving in the mail the next day.
