I get some really fun requests to draw, and this was one of them! Irena K. from Mattapoisett, MA wanted a custom cartoon drawing to use as a decoration in her bathroom. Here’s what she asked for:
Okay so I am a little crazy and I’m the typical girl that likes attention from her boyfriend and I act like a little princess. I may be too specific right now but work with these details. He doesn’t know about this picture and when he sees it I want to make him go “OMG, what is wrong with her.” I would like you to include a romantic / vintage theme, a cawfoot bathtub, soft curtain draping on the side of the bathtub (romantic), A window overlooking something (garden?), bubbles, me in the bathroom with a martini glass and my feet up. Maybe my boyfriend could be walking away as I start to pull the towel off him?
Irena did such a great job of describing the scenario that I immediately pictured it in my head and got to work! A few weeks later Irena sent me this photograph and comment which made me smile:
Every time I look at the unique custom drawing you did for me I just smile and laugh. It is exactly what I wanted and it’s a piece we will have forever. You brought my vision to life! Thank you! – Irena K.
