Custom portraits.

Today has been rather busy over here at Ella Masters Illustration HQ. I have been working my way through over 235 emails regarding custom illustrations. I am feeling crazily overwhelmed, its a good overwhelmed. For the first time today I have done my first proper full-time freelance day. Sounds silly as I have been off work for the last three weeks but I have finally set my studio up and have got down to proper commissioned work. The above illustration has been created for a lovely couple, I’m rather happy with how it has turned out. If you are a couple and after something quirky and one off i have rearranged my diary to fit in more custom illustrations so just drop me a little email and we will get to work with prices ( contact).

I have had a few emails from people asking me how have I had so many emails. I will put together a little online presence for illustrators blog post. If you have any question you want answered you can leave a comment and i will try to answer them. Thanks for all your support and kind words.

Have you done something different today if so I would love to hear what it is?

    Congratulations on your first day free-lancing! It is every Illustrator's goal! Which is why I (an Illustration student with a semester to go) am going to ask a few questions… I am yet to put up any blogs, etc. for my Illustration, but will soon, so I was wondering, what platforms (like Etsy, Facebook, Blogs, Tumblr, Pinterest and the like), do you think give you more exposure, helping people find your blog, and more importantly people who are interested in buying your work!?! Although my style is different to yours I still like to illustrate similar things, who do you recommend showing my work to, to begin with? I can't wait for your post to come, as any tips and tricks will be much needed! I have discovered your lovely blog, to read your adventures into the Illustration world at the perfect time 🙂 xx

    I Love your blog! I'm from Poland and illustration is my passion, but I never learn how to draw in profesional way. How do you think- is it posibile to be an illustrator without the school? I was studying in artistic academie of theatre in Warsaw and I have a job in culture!, but I'm still trying to draw. 🙂
