This is a series I started shortly after my older brother Darren’s wedding in March this year.
I couldn’t afford a wedding present for him and I felt terrible about it, so I decided to start drawing a belated wedding present for them.
This is the work that I am most proud of to date.
I started the first one in April and finished the last one in June.
It was an epic body of work that I had to keep going back to between commisions. I have been dying to post this first installment since I finished it on April 20th 2009, but restrained myself until all three were completed.
Special thanks to Mark at Perceptions Photography for giving me permission to use the reference photo (which you can see on his website)
