"Ollie loves dinosaurs" and other custom illustrations.
My clients are often a little sheepish when they approach me about custom illustrations and share their ideas with me. But for me, this is one of my favourite parts of the process. I LOVE hearing the stories behind the nickname for their loved one, or the reason their aunty loves mice, or finding out what makes a 3 year old's eyes light up, it is what sets my mind racing into creative mode. One of the sweetest moments was being sent a video of a three year old describing all the superheroes he admired.
I feel honoured to be let into this part of someone's life and it's a pleasure to be able to create something so meaningful.
If you'd like to have an illustration created for someone, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.

Iris & Agnes are sisters, they have a doll called Lucy with slightly crazy hair which we wanted to keep in.
Agnes has a duck called 'Ducky' who also features at the tea party. The girls both learnt to ski this year and love the snow, so I made it a winter scene. (I love snow too, so this was easy for me!)
A magical Christmas gift for Agnes & Iris.
