Illustrations capturing your family's special moments
January 5, 2016
Nina has been commissioning some really special illustrations which are capturing special moments in her family's life. From moving into their first house with their new baby to their first anniversary at the Eiffel Tower in Paris with their little girl. I absolutely love this idea. It's so unique and a really lovely way of keeping those special times in their lives in mind.
I am really looking forward to drawing the next illustration for her. It's so lovely to see her little girl getting older in the drawings. It's like a story and I can't wait to see what happens next!
"He... LOVED it! He said it was his best present. It is up already! Thank you so much." Nina
"Matthew loved it! We have both pictures next to each other, so it looks like a really individual, trendy commission collection!!! Everyone that comes round comments on them and I will definitely be getting more in the future when I have something that needs capturing!" Nina
Ruth has also been commissioning meaningful illustrations but in a slightly different way to Nina. She wanted drawings all the most special places to her and her husband so they could be made into the table place cards at their wedding. They chose drawings of Cambridge, Dublin, Eastbourne, Hemsy, London, Paris, Tenerife, Luton and Brighton. They each contained a main drawing of which was a landmark type drawing and I added little details about what they did when they were at that place. For example, in the Brighton picture, it was where they got engaged and so featured Champagne and Tapas.
Ruth also has commission two initial illustrations for her brother and for her mum. These contain all the things that they love and little details that are personal to them. Special days and anniversary's are lovely to add to the initial illustrations and make them a really personalised gift. She also has some more to come which I can't show just yet as they are gifts.
The Letter S Commissioned by Ruth for her Brother Shaun's 30th birthday Present.
Ruth commissioned an Initial illustration for her mother's wedding gift. It features all the things that are personal to her.

I am always busy so it's always best to get penciled in advance.
