Every once in a while someone asks me to do a small, commissioned piece. It hasn't happened in a really long time, and it's so much fun to get to think old-school again. For this piece, the client wanted a special card for her parents anniversary. She had envisioned something that had the names of the children and grandchildren spiraling or circling around the names of the parents, along with a personal message to them.
The part of this that's old-school, other than the fact that it's a one-off, is that I actually broke out the watercolors for the background. That's what makes these types of commissions so fun — getting into collage, painting, drawing, basically “real” media again, as opposed to just being on the computer.
