couples on safari

Couples who travel or look at life as a "journey" inspire me. The above couple came to me to illustrate a keepsake work of art last year from a recent safari. They wanted to use the artwork for their holiday card.
This was actually the first illustration that I did, take note that it has no hat, which one do you like better? Hat or no hat?Looking back, the couple will have these to remember their journey. I must admit, I loved adding the wildlife and totally lost myself in the border.
Back to couples, I think the art of travel and the spirit of a journey are what keep things interesting. After all it is not everyday that the mode of transportation would be that of an elephant.

I am accepting commissions of couples. Valentines day is coming up soon! Contact me via my contact on my site to place a custom "couples" order.

What a fantastic idea for the day full-of-love. These are a great keepsake of a special trip of a lifetime. I'm off to bid farewell to my 'better half'.

Ina,
I too loved the top drawing.
The norm is to do 3 illustrations and let the client choose.
Hope you are staying warm.
