Two new typography illustrations

A while ago I had a contest on my website to win a custom name illustration to one subscriber to my blog. Tanner L was the winner and a while ago I finished that illustration. It is a good example that the style illustration that I do can have any kind of names or words, not just family names. Tanner chose four directors, Robert Rodriguez, Quentin Tarantino, Stanley Kubrick, and Martin Scorcese, whose work influences him. I am quite happy with the end product and Tanner was also. He let me choose the colors, so I thought it fit his (and the directors' work) personality to use various shades of red on a black background.

Jenni, my sister-in-law (thus the same last name), also hired me to draw a custom illustration for her family, the more traditional route for these typographical illustrations. It worked as good timing since they recently had a new baby, young Dylan. Her decor is black and white, so to match that she had me use grey and black on a white background for the design. I thought it turned out splendidly. Jenni very much liked the illustration and said she would promote it to her friends, of which I am very appreciative of.

I'm glad that I could create two new happy clients with the illustrations.
