how it all works.

I'm getting lots of email these days about what I do and how it all works. While the canvas process is complicated to explain, I thought I would show you how the fashion illustrations are made. After the clients send a photo (most want likenesses like hair color and eye color in the illustrations) they are able to see the illustrations through steps, before it is put into color:

This one was done last week for a grad gift. The client chose the dress b/c it was the dress worn in the grad pics. Here is the full color illustration.
You can have custom illustrations made as gifts this holiday- but there are just a few spots left for Christmas delivery. And for the fashion lover who may not want herself sketched- there are deals on etsy.
