~ Recent Commission ~

I wanted to share two of the four recent commission pieces I have completed. The client loved gorilla's and wanted a set of four Silverback gorilla's done with pen & ink. The very first juvenile gorilla piece is my absolute favorite. The client commissioned these as birthday gifts for his sister in CA. They will be matted/framed and mailed in time for her birthday in August!

These were done with simple pen/ink and white colored pencils for highlights. The two pieces featured here are 8 x 10 inches, but the other two were 9 x 12's. Each piece took approximately 5-6 hours to complete. Enjoy! :-)
