Custom Illustrations


The way it works:

1 ) Email me your favorite photograph. Photos that clearly show the subject’s features and details work best.

A) In your email, briefly write what you like about the photo and if there are any special details or colors you would like to enhance or emphasize.

B) Select a background you would like. For example, all white background, the same background as the photo, a specific solid colored background, or something from your imagination.

C) Let me know what size you would like for the portrait. Some examples are 8x10, 11x14, 12x15, 16x20, etc.

2) I’ll send you a quote for the illustration.

3) We begin! And I’ll start working on your custom illustration.

4) Receive your custom illustration print in the mail, 6-8 weeks after we begin.

Top 10 reasons to order an iMissyYou custom illustration:

10. It’s your furry friend’s birthday and you want to surprise them with a custom portrait. (Beware: Your pet’s friends may become very, very jealous when your pet brags about their portrait at the dog park.)

9. You want to capture the essence of your favorite article of clothing (heels, rock-band t-shirt, your mom’s vintage dress, etc.) before you wear it to death.

8. You have a photo of yourself were you look really, really hot. Unfortunately, you were in your “wearing only pink” faze and you want to change the colors of your clothes. No problem. I’ll change the color for you.

7. You have been telling your friends that you went to Egypt and they want proof. Unfortunately, the pictures of your trip are all blurry. Don’t worry; I can illustrate you riding a camel in front of the Great Pyramid in Giza.

6. You can’t decide whether to be a punk or a goth. I can illustrate what you would look like so you can make an informed decision. I can even give you piercings or a cool tattoo without you experiencing any pain. It’s like magic.

5. You LOVE this one photo of you and your partner on your wedding day, but you don’t love your cousin blowing snot-rockets behind you. I can replace your cousin with a background of a glorious lake at sunset with a couple of swans making a heart-shape with their necks.

4. Everyone looks better in watercolor.

3. It’s a great gift for any time of the year. Perfect for Christmas, Birthdays, Valentine's Day, Hanukah, Labor Day, Easter, Fourth of July, President’s Day, Halloween, Secretaries Day, St. Patrick’s Day… you get the picture.

2. This year, you want your mom to cry “happy tears” when she opens her Mothers Day gift.

1. You love the picture of you in the Grand Canyon but no longer love the crazy ex next to you. I can illustrate the photo without them in it. Or even better, replace them with Brad Pitt or Angelina Jolie.
