Lana (the other half)
Roughly a month before Valentines Day 2013, I had decided that I wanted to do something special for my partner and I's first Valentines Day. I'm terrible with secrets when I have to see the person I'm keeping the secret from every single day but I knew I had to persevere. I came upon the idea of killing two birds with one stone. I needed to prove to myself that I was still able to create a vector portrait in Adobe Illustrator and while doing that I was able to create a heartfelt Valentines Day gift with a personal touch.

The portrait was created with a picture as a reference. I chose a picture I was very fond of and got to work. As I had to work around my day job, it took me a good few weeks to finish the portrait but by the time I had finished I couldn't wait to get it printed and framed.

"This is honestly the best present I've ever been given."
Lana | the other half

This portrait now holds pride of place on our bedroom wall and we have plans to have Lana draw a portrait of me and hang both portraits side by side.
