I had an interesting little job recently. A client of my husband's asked me to illustrate her wedding guests as party favors. (Lucky for me, it was a relatively small wedding-- only 40!)
The directions were pretty minimal, such as, "so-and-so has black hair and is very elegant, so-and-so is a triathlete with a prosthetic leg". Well, I agonized (because I always do) but in the end the bride loved them! I hope the guests liked them-- I'll never really know if any of them resembled anyone, since the wedding was in Texas.
I think the wedding was today. I wonder how many of these will be on the floor of the car tomorrow! :)
Out of all of them, this one was my favorite, she wanted a portrait of her wedding dress.
