This may be one of my favorite custom Happy Family pieces I’ve worked on yet! At first, while I loved the idea of creating a Disneyland theme, I didn’t have a vision yet. But after spending a little time thinking about it, I got really excited! And once I took a look at the color palette Mindianne wanted me to work in, I was even MORE thrilled!! I pretty much LOVED working on every part of this piece!! From the recreating Mindianne’s adorable family, to making the Disneyland sign. In the illustration, the family is leaving the park after a fun-filled day. Can’t you just tell they had an incredible day together?
Here is Mindianne’s entry for the piece:
|Zack (Dad)- Brown Hair, Green eyes Zack is a happy fun loving person, a jokester, loves dancing with his two little girls in the living room, and is a very hard working person who loves to garden and make our yard beautiful.Mindianne (Mom)- Brown Hair, Green eyes Mindianne is also a happy fun loving person. She loves to read to her little girls and they visit the library often. She loves to take her girls to different places like the zoo, the aviary, museums, different botanical gardens, etc.Sophie-5 Blonde hair, blue eyes Sophie is a very kind little girl and very happy. She is friends with many people and makes friends where ever she goes. She loves to visit new places and learn new things. She is a very good big sister and loves to help take care of her little sister. She loves to read and play dress-up. She loves to have fun and cuddle with mom and dad.
Olivia-2 Blonde hair, Blue eyes Olivia is our spitfire. She is a sweet and happy girl, but very mischevious at the same time. She loves to dance with her daddy and knock over any tower that is being built out of blocks. She loves to swim and be outside. She is very cuddly and can often be found on daddy’s lap playing with his “ipog” (ipod)
|The 3 to 5 prominent colors I would like in my piece include: *||Hot Pink, Turquoise, Lime Green, Red, White (If those don’t go too well together, I am not picky and totally trust you :0) )|
|Tell me what you would like to see your family doing (would you like them just sitting all together posing, as if for a picture? Or would you like them to be doing something together). Please supply the most details here:||Our most favorite thing to do together as a family is go to Disneyland. I know this sounds lame, but there is no greater joy to us than to see our girls so excited about seeing and doing things there. It makes us remember what it is to see and feel things as children do. We also love to watch movies. We just love being together!!|
|Any other details you might be able to give me that would help ensure your enjoyment of the piece:||I don’t know if this is possible, but we also have two dogs that we love dearly. Our Bullmastiff is named Jasmine and our Shih Tzu is Gus. They unfortunately don’t get to travel with us, but if somehow they could be incorporated also that would be awesome. If you can’t quite tell the sizes of them, Jasmine is the Bullmastiff and weighs 124 lbs and is pretty tall. Gus is the little Shih Tzu and weighs 12.5 lbs. :0)|
Mindianne, thank you for loving going to Disneyland with your family! I’m so thrilled I got to create this piece for you! I hope you and your husband and girls love it as well!! And by the way, the color palette totally works!! And it is so not lame to have wanted a Disneyland piece!! Oh! And I’m so glad I got to illustrate your pups! A great addition to the piece!
