My First Commission, From this site!

The first commission I received since launching my new website was from Dysan Aufar in Indonesia.

It was such a pleasure to work with him on creating this artwork for his girlfriend so far away. Well, far away from Dysan at least. Who would have imagined that I would receive a commission from the other side of the world for someone who lives less than an hour away from my studio! It was incredibly special to experience Dysan’s girlfriend’s reaction, and very moving. As an artist, the moment of the ‘reveal’ is always tense. You feel vulnerable as you are essentially exposing your creativity for review and response.

Thankfully I have never had a negative reaction to any commission, but it doesn’t make that moment any less powerful. I think the video here says it all.
