I feel I need to give a big shout out to a wonderful British illustrator, Annie Brougham, with whom I have worked with on a name-project recently.
I approached Annie several months ago to help me out with a project I had in mind. As a Christening/Birth gift for the parents of young children in my family, I wanted to give them a special keepsake picture-poster of the history of their child's name. The trouble was a) most "name posters" are filled with total nonsense and b) I'm not very artistically creative. So, I approached Annie to help me bring them to life.
The very beautiful pictures which Annie created are below (I have blurred sections to preserve personal details):
All of Annie's illustrations are drawn and painted by hand and she works in slightly different styles in response to each project brief. I simply gave her the information and she crafted each beautiful project by hand.
If you are looking for a lovely bespoke print, I would urge you to contact Annie. Her prices are phenomenally reasonable (you couldn't get better on the highstreet/online print companies) and they are truly bespoke. You can find Annie at cupofteaillustration.co.uk.
If you want the print to have the history of a name, let Annie know and I'll be happy to help.
