Below is the original photo, sketch & final design. I asked Robyn to combine one of patterns within the piece. We chose my 'Quirky Motifs' design as a simple & contemporary backdrop to compliment the illustration.
I was really pleased with the final result & I gave the project as a lovely gift to my sister & her partner for Christmas.
If you are interested in Robyn's beautiful work you can visit her Facebook page here or follow on Twitter @Robyntori.
Since meeting Robyn I have commissioned her for several projects including illustrations for MOYO magazine. I highly recommend her she's definitely one to watch!
