A few months back I held a contest to win a custom name illustration to one lucky subscriber and showed an example of such. Tanner L was the winner and a while ago I finished his illustration, and thought I should share it here also. It works as a great example that the illustration can have any kind of names, not just family. Tanner chose four directors, Robert Rodriguez, Quentin Tarantino, Stanley Kubrick, and Martin Scorcese, whose work has influenced him and his own work. I am rather happy with the result and Tanner was very much so as well. He left the color choice to me and I thought it was fitting to put this one as various shades of red on a black background as it fit with Tanner’s personality as well as the darker nature of the work of the directors.
Jenni, who is my sister-in-law (thus the same surname), hired me to do a custom illustration for her family, the more traditional route for these typographical drawings. It was rather good timing as they just recently had a new child enter the family, young Dylan. Her decor follows a black and white theme, so to match that she had me do grey and black on white background for the design, which I think turned out splendidly. Jenni very much liked the illustration and said she would promote it to her friends, of which I am very appreciative of.
I’m glad that I could create two new happy clients with the illustrations. If you would like your own custom name (or really any words would work) illustration or any other illustration, photography or design work, feel free to send me a message through my hire request form.
