A tribute to a special case of love. I created this piece as a gift to our friends and newlyweds, Jon & Lily Evans.
While in Los Angeles for their wedding, I noticed the unique love the two had for eachother by the way they gazed eachother's eyes. Inspired by this, I wanted to illustrate a piece of art that could embody that. The use of floral ornament was inspired by the abundance of vines located at and around their home. Additionally, this stylistic direction was intended to symbolize the natural, timeless, and beautiful love that Jon & Lily had for one another.
I began the process by sourcing two profile photographs of the two. I iterated upon numerous thumbnail-sized illustrations until I was comfortable with this execution. From there, I illustrated the piece at a larger scale, using white and gold pens on black 22x30 Stonehenge paper. Additionally, I created a vector, digital copy of the artwork for future reproductions.
