People often ask me how made-to-order illustrations work. The process is pretty simple: you choose the subject, tell me a little about you or to whom the gift is for, then what is the feeling you want to share through it. If you don't know yet what the meaning is going to be, no worries as I'll help and we can find it together!
I'll make a couple of sketches shortly afterwards to help you visualise your idea, then a few days later — puff! — your illustration is ready to go!
