Karen's Wedding Portrait

Hey everyone! Things have been really busy right now. I am only getting a chance to eat my first meal of the day (mac and cheese) and update my blog :)

The latest portrait I got to do was for Karen! She wanted a cute cartoon version of some of her wedding photos. Here is what I created for her:

Is it not adorable?? It was the first wedding portrait I have ever gotten to do and I think it came out fantastically! She really enjoyed it and I cannot wait until she receives the printed copy in her mailbox!! Remember if you are interested in purchasing your own digital portrait drawn by me, Laura, head over to my etsy shop, and click on this listing:

Lauren's Second Portait!

I am still really sick :( but I am going to go to work today! Just sitting in my desk chair, eating a bowl of macaroni and cheese and catching up on my freelance stuff since I was in bed for the past two days; not fun!!

But anyway I wanted to post a client piece I did recently for Lauren. I made a portrait for her before. This time she wanted me to go crazy with the photos she sent me! We are both huge fans of pink and Barbie so I wanted to do something really, really, REALLY pink.

Here is one of the photos I used to work from:

I was a big fan of the sunglasses and the way her hair was blowing in the wind. This is what I created:

It is a very cute and very fashionable cartoon!!

I used three different hues of the color pink, some dark and almost purple, bright pink, and a light pink. The background I did was very simple, clean and geometric. I made some cute embellishments to the sunglasses like a little heart and some pink rhinestones :)

She really liked it!! She is one of my very good customers and I love working on her projects!

Have a good day everyone!

Alichia-Rae Portrait

Hey everyone I am still pretty super sick :( it is not fun at all. I thought I kicked it out of my system but unforunately that was not the case. I figured now would be a good time to post some more work I have done up to this point.

I got to work on a digital portait for a client named Alichia-Rae. Here is the photo she gave me to work from:

And here is how I rendered it:

I think it turned out great, and she was very pleased with it too! It was nice working with the green, not a color I work with too often :)

She found Violet Ink Design on Facebook. You can click the "like" button in the facebook frame on the right hand side of my page to fan me and keep up with all my projects! Or just visit!/pages/Violet-Ink-Design/115320861822900

More client work to follow. I hope I get better soon though. I have a lottt of projects to work through. Have a good evening everyone!

Cartoon Tracy Madness!!

Hey everyone, sorry for the late update on the posts. Things have been super busy and I did end up getting sick for awhile. The BeABiographer contest is really winding down and it is not looking good for Team Laura!! To place some final votes just click here at:

The important thing is though, (whether I win or lose) is that I made art for a great cause! By showing people my piece I am raising awareness to the social cause at hand; the reality of human sex trafficking. I urge you all to visit the Blind Project's website ( educate yourselves and if you have some extra money, donate to their cause :)

Onto the artwork now! I have done a couple portraits since the last time that I updated. First off is a portrait request from Tracy DiMarco modeling a look from the store Pop Culture! Here is the photo I had to work from:

And here is the finished piece:

I think it turned out great! I just loved the neon green dress and matching bracelets! The important part is that Tracy really enjoyed it :) and when she's happy, I'm happy!!!

Next I did a portait for her and her boyfriend!!! :D They are definitely the cutest couple around! Here is the photo I was provided:

And my finished piece:

How adorable is that??? I even made sure their outfits matched this time!! It did take a longer time for me to do, the camo pattern was REALLY slowing down Illustrator. So much that it refused to save :( it was really annoying!! But once I switched her dress to black, everything went smoothly. I then added the pattern last. And of course I had to add a big pink heart :)

What do you guys think?? I love doing work like this!

ALSO if you are interested in showing your TEAM TRACY pride, the style network has an official store to buy JERSEYLICIOUS merchandise!!

Go to and order yourself a hoodie, shirt, or even a canvas bag!!
