Reader Artwork!

I cannot even get over this illustration that was sent to me by Destiney Powell, one of the readers. She picked a photo from a recent outfit post of mine and created this amazing mixed media version. I’m beyond flattered and over the moon with her artistic abilities.

Destiney uses a mixture of prismacolor markers, colored pencils, oil paints, pastels and even eye shadow. She attributes her father as her biggest inspiration when it comes to illustration. She grew up watching him draw and mimicked his hobby in her own sketchbook. (Love that.)

Similar to this drawing, Destiney currently offers commissioned illustrations for birthdays, anniversaries and weddings. How beautiful would an illustration of a bride be, right? She says the best part of being a custom illustrator is becoming more versatile and the ability to network and socialize. Seriously, such an energetic and creative mind!
