Fun Portrait of a Man and His Sidekick Cat

ArtCorgi Commission for Jake by Mourphine

Isn’t this portrait the best? Jake commissioned from Mourphine (in her Simple Cartoon style) for his friend Justin and we understand it went over quite well!

Backstory Behind the Piece: Q&A with Jake

ArtCorgi (AC): What inspired you to commission this art?

Jake (J): I always thought it would be a super cool idea as a gift to get an illustration commissioned, it took me a while to figure out how to go about it I was asking my friends if they knew anyone that could do it, with no luck so I just went searching on the web and found ArtCorgi and thought it was the neatest thing ever.

AC: Many people have a super hard time choosing a style of art in which they want their commission to be made. What drew you to Mourphine’s illustration style in particular?

J: I kind of had an idea of what style of illustration I wanted and was looking around trying to find an illustrator that could do that style. I saw Mourphine’s work and knew that was exactly what I wanted, and I am so happy how it turned out!

AC: What advice would you give to a friend who is commissioning art for the first time?

J: Advice I would give is to make sure you have a bunch of reference photos and to be descriptive so they know exactly what you are looking for.
