December last year, a good friend of mine in Japan had her wedding. I was asked to do a welcome board with the illustration of the couple, which is quite common to have at weddings in Japan.
I was also asked to give it a Christmas feel since the wedding was in December. She also asked for little forest creatures to be included.
I haven't been to too many weddings but it was one of the most emotional wedding. I was mentioned in her little speech as one of the girls who changed her life in school. ( I had no idea! until I heard the speech.) She was extremely shy at school and I apparently made her to open up. She is now one of the most bubbly and a friendly atmosphere-setter of my friends. I remember talking to her in the first few days of school because she was busy drawing in her sketchbook at her desk. She is really good at drawing.
And here is another wedding commission I had recently of a couple. They are a lovely couple of English man and Lithuanian lady. They wanted to reflect each other's background so I illustrated the girl in folk Lithuanian costume and English gentleman. This was a cover illustration for their wedding invites.
Head over to my website for detailed look on both wedding commissions.
