A Commissioned Gift - Digital Artwork

Completed Project

Original Photograph

I really love doing commissioned work. Collaborating with a client to bring their vision to reality is extremely rewarding in the creative sense. In the case of digital artwork, it is amazingly affordable and makes a wonderful keepsake and gift.

I was hired to create an edgey and colorful digital artwork from a photo of this public building where my client worked. This is to be a gift for a co-worker who is moving on to another job. The photograph that was provided was a good candidate but the building itself was not exactly picturesque. As you can see from the photograph, there was the peeling paint, obtrusive electric lines, an unattractive sign on the building and a neighboring car and house to contend with. My client is a delightful person who knows precisely what she wants so I was able to create the artwork fairly quickly. All of the offending elements were removed and the desired charm was effectively applied. I'm very happy to report that she is quite pleased with the results. The digital image is off to the printer today and it will be shipped to the client tomorrow.
