I was privileged to work on this bespoke illustrated gift for a client who was proposing to his girlfriend. He had written a poem that he wanted to use to propose to her with and wanted me to illustrate it. I suggested that I illustrated it as a scroll in order to bring out the royal themes within the poem and in order for it to be presented in a more special and unique way. I illustrated the symbolism used within the story, with themes of autumn, swans and magical lands, as well as portraying the couple as a fairytale prince and princess and writing their names in hand drawn lettering. I had the illustration produced onto canvas material and had a box produced for it to sit in as a keepsake. The illustration could also be framed at a later date should they wish to have it on their wall.

I am very pleased to tell you that she said yes!!

"She loved it, she was so surprised. It worked perfectly. It couldnt have worked without your help."

I feel honoured to have been part of such a special life event. Congratulations Antony and Quesny, and good luck with the arrival of your baby! Wishing you every happiness.
