Yesterday was delivery day. We had brought back commission work from an event we attended a couple of weeks ago (more on that soonish!) and it was a relaxing pleasure to finally have them all ready to go.
We usually open for portraits at events only and when there’s too many clients to handle, only then do we resort to taking commissions back with us and mailing them later on. Our process is rather simple: we begin by sketching the main shapes work our way to the details.
At events, our drawing hands always end up feeling like they’re going to fall off – speed is key, so it’s therapeutic to take our time with these ones that don’t require super speed.
We packed them portraits and off we went to the post office! And hurray, such a sunny day!
It’s a blessing to be able to walk in the sun and wear T-shirts in November. We do know we are blessed and to catch a bit of fresh air was very liberating, especially when we two usually stay at the studio for days on end like recluses doing time for some harsh penalty… fortunately we love this job ♥
Now we just need to find out a better postal service method to avoid overcharging our portrait clients… anyone got tips?
