Another beautiful commission..

I was so delighted when Georgia Coote asked me to illustrate a picture of her husband and their beautiful daughter, Delilah, for his birthday. I felt so touched that someone as talented as herself wanted me to illustrate such a special and beautiful image as a gift for her husband. I loved every moment of it. The photograph (and little Delilah herself) is stunning. 

I wanted to make sure it was perfect, and worked hard to create something both myself and they could be proud of. And they loved it! This makes me so happy, I always feel so nervous illustrating such intimate and special photographs! I really love illustrating family and baby portraits, it feels so wonderful. So here is the illustration (I hope you like it too!).

And if you haven't seen Georgia's work before, go and take a look! And say hello to her on twitter too, she's just lovely! She is an amazing textile and surface pattern designer and I know you will love her work as much as I do!

If you wish to commission an illustration like this (or completely different!) do not hesitate to get in touch! I'd love to hear from you. 

Have a lovely Easter and I will post again soon!
