Irit Commissioned a Portrait to Print on Her Wedding Invitations
Make it Memorable
Irit wanted her wedding invitation to stand out and be memorable, so she decided to commission a portrait to feature on each card. She had always wanted to have a portrait done, anyhow!
Everyone is Included
Though Irit’s Scottish Fold Cat, Marcus, is beloved amongst her friends, he would be too afraid at a large wedding… so having him on the invitations enables him to be present in spirit.
Ghina Commissioned a Special Portrait for Her Best Friend
An Extra Special Birthday
Ghina’s best friend recently learned she is expecting her first baby, so to celebrate her birthday, Ghina wanted to commission original art that commemorated the happy discovery.
Room for Personalization
When given a draft to review, Ghina had the opportunity to work important personal details into the piece, such as a pattern inspired by fabrics local to her friend’s home.
A Lasting Gift
Ghina had the art printed and shipped to her best friend (who lives in another country), where it will decorate the walls of the soon-to-arrive baby’s nursery.
Malcolm Commissioned The Most Ridiculous Portrait He Could Imagine
Anything You Can Imagine
One perk associated with having yourself drawn or painted rather than photographed is that you can appear however you like. That includes putting yourself in outlandish scenes that would be impossible to replicate in person.
More Direction = Better
To ensure that the commissioned turned out to his liking, Malcolm provided a large number of high quality reference photos and detailed notes on what he would like, so his artist knew exactly what to work into the image.
Art That Certainly Stands Out
As soon as Malcolm shared his commissioned painting, it became one of his most-liked Facebook posts. Suffice it to say that it is not every day that an image of your friend riding an armored corgi shows up in your News Feed.
Neha re-created her parents' favorite romantic getaway
Something They Don't Have
Neha wanted to give her parents a gift for a big wedding anniversary, but had trouble finding something they didn’t already have. She decided to commission original art, as it’s something she knew would be new.
Re-Creating a Memory
Neha had ArtCorgi artist Aurora Foo re-create a romantic vacation her parents had at a beautiful lake in India. She provided a mixture of old photos of her parents and reference photos of the lake for Aurora to use as reference images.
Neha, who lives in the United States, was able to save money shipping a print of this commission to her parents by having it printed, framed, and shipped by a local printer.
Nicholas Created a Unique Family Portrait for Mother's Day
Starting with a Great Photo
Nicholas had a photo of himself with his father and brother that his mother loved, but wanted to make it more special as a Mother’s Day gift. Turning it into a work of art was an easy solution!
Capturing Everyone in a Unique Style
After considering a variety of options, Nicholas opted for a commission style by Oweeo on ArtCorgi. “I sought something that was funky and different, while still being relatively representative.”
Malcolm made his end-of-class presentation unforgettable
The Class Went Wild
Malcolm commissioned a movie poster-style painting of his professors to commemorate his favorite class at Stanford Business School. When he surprised his class with it in a final presentation, they went wild.
Designed to Be Epic
Malcolm worked closely with his artist, FlyingCorpse, to develop a work of art portraying his professors in an epic manner. FlyingCorpse presented him with four rough sketches featuring different scenarios for him to choose from.
Malcolm had canvas prints of the final commission mounted on matboard that he gave to each professor, thanking them for the excellent readings, class discussions, projects, and office hours advice.
Patrick commissioned a convenient portrait of his kids
A Classic, Simple Style
Though ArtCorgi offers a lot of highly stylized, colorful, and bold art, Patrick chose a simple, timeless style by Joseph Lee– something every member of his family would enjoy.
Dropping Difficult Photo Sessions
Getting a family portrait in which everyone is smiling is not easy- especially when kids are involved! Patrick simply submitted separate reference photos of each smiling child.
One Commission, Multiple Uses
Though this particular work of art was commissioned as a gift for his wife, Patrick can turn his commission into wall art (by having it framed) or a family holiday card (by printing it on a folded card).
Simone had a life-sized portrait of herself printed on a body pillow
Creating a Playful Portrait
Simone started by commissioning a playful portrait of herself from Ashley Swaby in an anime-inspired cartoon style that she knew her fiancé would like. Determined to make her gift unique, Simone went for a print option (a pillow case) well off the beaten path!
Plenty of Flexibility
Though Ashley Swaby’s portrait was initially made for the purposes of creating a life-sized body pillow, Simone can easily re-use the art as a social media profile photo, stationery design, or whatever else she pleases.
