This weeks drawing is for an active family to surprise their Mum for her birthday. They love horses, animals and going orienteering when they can so we incorporated this into two seperate drawings one photorealistic of their gorgeous shetland pony and another caricature theme based on all the families interests.
A happy birthday from picky pencil.
Hi Lyn, drawings were a major hit! :-) Thanks again, very much appreciated. makes a cracking present. Hope Picky Pencil continues to thrive, Wullie
This weeks cartoon characters where a huge surprise for these lucky ladies. I created this caricature scene to act as a sort of invitation to a surprise weekend away organised by their lovely partners.
They all had a great time and even had a go at recreating the pose when they arrived. Not often I have a before and after shot.
Thanks again for this brilliantly fun cartoon commission.

Stock cartoon crazy
This chiristmas I was lucky enough to be given the chance to draw this gorgeous stock car as a present from this gentlemens lovely daughters. After I finished I thought how much I enjoy drawing vehicles in all shapes and sizes so with that in mind I had a stroll down memory lane and created this blog featuring some of my favourites from the past few years.
Perfect portrait for a perfect gift.
I had the pleasure this last Xmas to create a realistic portrait illustration for this lovely couple all the way over the pond in the USA. This was a gift for his partner and I creted the portrait from one of his personal photographs.
I really enjoy these types of commissions as I love trying to capture that one special moment that has been captures on film.
A special moment for a special couple.
Hope you are enjoying your original peice of artwork.
