Something special.

Today's post is dedicated to my awesome partner B who turned 24 today, as well as the lovely Lauren from Tasteslikelove who created the amazing custom portrait below as a last minute birthday gift for me to give to B. :)


I honestly couldn't be more pleased with both the quality and timeliness of Lauren's work. I contacted Lauren late last week to see if she would be able to do a customised illustration of B and myself (without breaking my pathetic budget) and she was more than happy to do so. :) 

Lauren not only sent me the portrait above in the sizes I had requested for printing purposes, but she also sent me the same illustration with a blank background so that I could play around with background image for myself (see my new facebook cover photo below).


All I had to do was send Lauren a few photos and details about us (see below), then after a quick revision of her initial draft where we discussed skin tones etc, Lauren had the final copies completed, resized and emailed straight out to me.

The "pose".
The "suit".
The "hair colour".
Needless to say, B was totally pleased (and surprised!) when I gave him this framed custom portrait this morning. Lauren's custom illustrations are thoughtful, detailed and truly one of a kind.. the perfect gift for any occasion! I would recommend Lauren's services to anyone. :)
