Put on your crown; let us conquer the world.”
For my birthday, I decided I wanted something a little bit special as my “guest book”, & not something that would simply be put away at the bottom of the drawer & forgotten about. I started googling ideas for this along with ideas for decor, & came across this stunning image.
I loved the fact that there was still an air of mystery to it, but it captured something that is most important to me – the person’s eyes.
People say that the eyes are a “window to the soul” – that they can tell us much about a person just by gazing into them. Given that we cannot, for example, control the size of our pupils, body language experts can deduce much of a person’s state by factors relating to the eyes.
Now I had to try find someone that would be able to work with this, but still make me something special just for my birthday. Where would I even start? Who could I ask?
I had been following an amazing artist at Nib and Bristle for some time & decided I would contact her to get her opinion, as well as see what she could come up with to commemorate such a big event in my life, Tarran was so helpful from the very moment I contacted her & came back to me with some ideas, as well as asking for photos of me so she could personalise the image to look more like me. The week before my birthday she came to drop off my canvas with her drawing, & this is what it looked like…
I immediately teared up when I saw it & was blown away by what she had done. This really was amazing & something that nobody else owned. I couldn’t have described it better myself if I had tried! She captured everything perfectly, & you could tell straight away that this pic was of me. She is so so talented!
I decided I wanted to get to know her a little better & show off her abilities to more people. She is such a wonderful person & she truly deserves to do well.
