The Brief: To create a family portrait in a fun illustrated style for an anniversary gift from wife to husband.

Role: Graphic designer and illustrator responsible for concept, design, and implementation of all lettering and illustration.

Tools Used: iPad Pro, Procreate app, Apple Pencil.


This project was to create an anniversary gift as a commission. From the source materials, I created a digital sketch in Procreate on the iPad Pro, then added color and backgrounds. The final image was printed on matte heavyweight paper and provided to the client.

Omg omg omg you are ahhhmazing! I love it. It’s perfect...
You really did a great job and I’m so thankful to have found you. Thank you!!!
