Daily Discovery: Custom Artwork by TUSH TUSH

By Isabel Kallman

Custom Portrait TUSH TUSH

I have been slowly commissioning affordable custom portraits of my son. My plan is to have a gallery of framed drawings, paintings, sketches and silhouettes of my son at different ages in childhood. I have several already, mostly from artists found on Etsy.

The process is quite simple. I send in a couple of photos of my son to the artist and a few days or weeks later I am holding an heirloom in my hands.

This drawing above is by Israeli artist TUSH TUSH. And, below is the original photo for comparison.

Custom Artwork

To give you a sense of pricing, this original drawing (it’s 5.8″ x 8.7″) was $50. What I like about working with this particular artist even more is that I was able to see my custom drawing before I purchased it, which is highly unusual.

I’ll be featuring more custom artwork here this week. But I would love to know if you’ve worked with any artists and can make recommendations!

Wow, what talent she has! Do you like the paper she uses? It says she uses “packaging paper” but I don’t know what that is. Does this look like it will last a long time, properly matted and framed? Thanks for the tip!

Thank you for the response! I went ahead and placed an order, and Tali was so kind and so quick. This is what she came up with: http://www.etsy.com/transaction/42851770 and here is one she did from a snapshot at my wedding: http://www.etsy.com/transaction/42903106 I love them so much, and am so excited that I can afford original artwork. I think I’ll order one more, a close-up of my daughter. Another great thing about this shop is that she will also make prints for you of the original and you can get them on these cute mini canvases.
