If you’re familiar with the mission behind my greeting cards and gifts, you will know that positive and diverse representation is something I’m very passionate about. And what better way to represent and celebrate a friend or loved one, than a personalised illustration.
As well as my Royalty collection of items, I offer a bespoke service to those who want an extra special portrait illustration. I can create these illustrations using one of two different styles – a poly-vector technique or a flat vector technique.
How it works…
- Send me the photo of the person you’d like illustrated as well as any wording you’d like featured and any colour preferences you have for the background.
- Please send an image that is as high quality as possible.
- I will then illustrate the image in your chosen style and send you the high-quality image for you to print on anything you’d like! (Or, I can send off to print for you at an extra cost).
This style of illustration takes the longest to complete, so please allow up to 5 working days before you need it (longer if you require it to be sent to print).
Flat vector technique
This style is the most versatile. I can work with most photographs and even change the colour of clothing.
It is a great way to revamp old photos or have portraits of multiple people in different poses.
I can produce either a more realistic style or a cartoon version, which is great for kids!
Although my cards and gifts feature a wide range of hairstyles, ages and skin tones, I will probably never build a collection that represents every single beautiful person in the African diaspora (but I’m trying!), so bespoke illustrations are a great option to get that illustration looking just like the recipient!
PLEASE NOTE: As every illustration is unique and won’t be used anywhere else, prices are more expensive than my existing collection of cards (from £35).
