My friend is leaving the country for good. Since I didn't know what to get her and I wanted to be something light that she could carry back home, I've made what I can do best, an illustration of her. This is her portrait. Hopefully in time this will still remind her of us her friends and London.
I used a photo as reference. It took me roughly 3 days to paint it in Photoshop. Her reaction was a well worth while effort :)
