Family portraits are the best! Though we love it when clients commission family portraits with battle, sci-fi, or fantasy themes, nothing beats some old-fashioned cozy nostalgia, and we think there is plenty of that timeless charm worked into this illustration Michelle commissioned from Louie Zong.
