Illustration Friday: Match


Awww, a perfect match. Although, vertical stripes next to horizontal stripes is a big no-no. This was a very quick sketch with color slapped on in photoshop.

And on another note, today is my anniversary. Fifteen years ago I met my perfect match. Lorien, you're the best! I love you.

He reminds me of a young Bill Gates (at least in the face), then when I look closer at her, I see she has the same (matching, of course) face. Very nice work. I really enjoy your style.

It's great how the space between them stays exactly the same from her hips to his waist. And they both look like they belong in an old Rankin-Bass Christmas special. Maybe it's the gap in the teeth that makes me think that. Great designs, Guy.

Nice pic Guy! That guy looks somewhat familiar. I think this couple lives by me. I can't belive that it's been 15 years! You two are as much fun as the couple in the pic. Happy Anniversary! Try jumping on the bed...it keeps you young.

Happy anniversary. Did you do anything fun or are you stuck in your studio? Make him take you someplace great, Lorien! I have the hip genes and my husband has the tummy...I guess that makes us a perfect match too (it'll be 10 years in February...just booked our trip to Mexico to celebrate)
