Will the REAL Jane Smith Please Stand Up... THE ART OF PERSONALIZING.

More and more, one of my specialties has become creating customized illustrations of people in a situation typical to them. It's not only fun for the one receiving it, but a very humorous challenge for me to get the best reaction possible! 

Here's the latest - and believe me, my customer and I had a GREAT time with the details!! I relish putting in as many personalized props as I can, going to the extent of having photos emailed to me for reference. This customer went so far as to get ahold of her mother's purse, and swiftly taking pics of some of its contents with her smart phone. Her mother couldn't stop shrieking with surprised delight each time she spotted a familiar detail.

So, here's the finished art, followed by some bits and pieces leading up to it, and ending with a photo of the leading lady. 

My only available "model" posing.
