I finished working on this wonderful little commission a few weeks ago and have been waiting to show you all. I loved this image when I was sent it to draw and couldn't wait to begin work transforming it into a unique illustration. I find the process of taking a photograph that is special and using it to create an illustration for a person to treasure a really exciting process. I guess this is why I love portrait illustration... Simple really!
This piece was a gift for my customer's husband. Now he has it and, so I have heard, loves it, I can share it with the rest of you! I hope you like it too!
Before I leave, I have some exciting news!! My Etsy shop will be open for sales this afternoon! There will be custom orders and prints available to start with but I am also working on a number of limited edition prints and a few cards designs that will be in there too shortly. Exciting!
