Today, I have a super sweet ๐Ÿ’˜ and romantic story for you.

It's a tale of me meeting my client ๐Ÿง”๐Ÿฝโค๏ธ๐Ÿง”๐Ÿป Ricky Donovan and his boyfriend. They moved into their new home and needed artwork for their walls. My friend Alexander tagged me in of their moving posts ๐Ÿššโ€”how nice was that?

I started chatting with Ricky and we decided to create one art piece for their ๐Ÿ›๏ธ bedroom featuring the two of them together.

Ricky had a ton of reference images for me to look through. But it was clear, there was one moment we wanted to capture in art: a romantic underwater encounter of the two reaching towards one another. It's very similar composition to the Michaelangelo fesco ๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿป "Creation of Adam"โ€”very that.

Their response to the initial sketch I showed was so touching. They were super excited. We discussed colors and their preferencesโ€”ultimately picking one for each figureโ€”red and blue.

Ricky took me on a tour of their home (via video), it's cute! And with that info we settled on a frame style and artwork size. It's huge, 24'x24' (60x60 cm) plus about 7 extra inches on both sides for the mat and frame.


Here's a super sweet video of the couple unboxing their artwork, and with bathrobes. ๐Ÿ‘˜ ๐Ÿคฉ


Ricky also modified a shirt with this artwork by adding some sleeves. It's a super sexy look.


๐ŸŽ๏ธ ๐ŸŒ I love that they can literally take our artwork everywhere.

๐Ÿ†• ๐Ÿ—ฃ I have 4 open slots this month for commissions like this. If you want to be one of them, please reply. I'll shoot over some info to get started.
