My lovely friend and frequent muse Alana commissioned me to make a wedding gift for equally lovely pair Juli Daoust and John Baker, the taste-makers behind mjolk, the renowned Scandanavian design store in the Junction. I met Juli through Alana years ago and her impeccable sense of style and taste has always stood out to me. After lurking their addictive blog, kitka (do it. Click that link) I knew a hyper-realistic portrait of the beautifully minimalist couple would be inappropriate. I wanted the portrait to look like something from a children’s book in another language (probably a Scandinavian one). This is what I made:
I printed on yellow, cream and white, but the grey really won me over. Congratulations to Juli & John. I hope they like the portrait!
