Boxing beasts!
Posted 3 months ago and submitted by Chris Davies | Share link:

Shortly after joining Hire an Illustrator, I was delighted to receive my first commission from Jakky Portelli, a client in the USA. Having seen my work on the site, she thought my style would be a good fit for the project she had in mind – an illustration of a kangaroo boxing with a grizzly bear to reflect her Australian boyfriend’s move to California.

Needless to say, I was thrilled to start working on this illustration, and kept her updated throughout with my progress. My illustration arrived safely (despite the harsh weather in the UK and USA over the festive period) and will shortly be framed and put on display in its new home.

I hope it gives Jakky and her boyfriend, Ed, many years of pleasure!

Chris was able to transfer my boyfriend’s exact thoughts to paper of a scene of a kangaroo fighting a grizzly bear. Chris was able to illustrate this scene just the way my boyfriend has always described he wanted it to look. Not only was the illustration awesome, but Chris was also so easy to work with and made sure the illustration would be finished in time for Christmas. I would absolutely recommend Chris as an illustrator!
