Four years ago I created a surf illustration for my now brother-in-law and sister-in-law’s wedding. They got married in Maui and they wanted an image that was surf inspired. After the wedding I painting and framed this image which is currently hanging in their house. Fast forward to present day and they now have a wonderful three year old daughter. My niece is already an outdoor guru with experience in climbing, surfing and skiing. She is truly an inspiration to toddlers and parents everywhere. Whenever my niece looks at the image I created she asks where she is (because she is missing from the art). So for her third birthday I added her into the image and printed the illustration on canvas. I didn’t have the time to paint it, but I used photoshop to get the same look as a painting and everyone was quite happy with the result, especially my niece.
