A Sloth and a Bee.

I'm always really excited when I'm commissioned to create work for someone else. Usually people get in touch when it's for a special gift, and they want to give the recipient something really personal. I love the challenge of taking someones idea and making it happen. 

The piece I'm sharing today was no exception. I was asked to create a piece of art that could be given to a couple as they moved in together. This was no ordinary 'couples portrait' though - it was explained to me how the couple in questions favourite animals are sloths and bees, so I was asked to draw an image containing both of these. 

I had to do some research into both kinds of animal - then work out how to draw them in my own style, while also capturing some of their personality. 

I'm really pleased with how it ended up- it was a bit of a challenge to get the two very different kinds (and sizes!) of creature in the picture and have it all hang together, but I think it worked out nicely. 

Happy 'Moving In' to the lovely pair!
