Daily Discovery: Custom Artwork by 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.
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!Published January 24, 2011. Last updated January 24, 2011.
