Alexander and Sock Panda

I haven’t been neglecting this blog, not EXACTLY — well, sort of. But I have a good excuse – I’ve gotten so many portrait orders lately! I’m painting every day, and it feels so great. Thank you so much to everybody that is supporting me in this new venture! And please keep the orders coming!

So I did this painting a few weeks ago, and have been meaning to write about it ever since. I received an order last month from a woman for her nephew, Alexander, to paint his favorite Blabla doll, which he named “Sock Panda”. Here’s the photo I received:

Alexander’s dad is an art director, and he had a pretty clear idea about how he wanted Sock Panda painted — arms akimbo, “a little more dynamism.”  As in, a little more personality? No problem!

Introducing Sock Panda, with an attitude:

Alexander and his family loved the portrait (yay!), and shared this pic of Alexander with Sock Panda and the finished portrait hanging in his room.

So cute, right? Now here’s where the story gets awesome (for me, anyways). The sweet aunt who bought Alexander the portrait is actually the fabulous Kelsey Kleiman of the equally fabulous Stomping Ground Photo. Stomping Ground has totally revolutionized the concept of school photos, bringing creativity and life to what is normally a stuffy, stodgy business.  They also do incredible private portrait sessions. They are based in Brooklyn, but have outposts all over the US.  Seriously, contact your kids’ school about using Stomping Ground for school photos – your memories will thank you for it later.

So Stomping Ground has a blog – and Kelsey blogged about me here! So sweet, right? But that’s not all Kelsey did for me – she hooked me up big time with some super sweet marketing ideas and contacts for my new little business, and for that I will be always be eternally grateful! Thank you, Kelsey!
