Stunning Jane in NYC

Well, Jane is absolutely gorgeous and has the most fabulous hair and smile. It was such a pleasure to draw her and what a fun theme for her bat mitzvah! I love a city theme.


Here's a handsome young guy, ready to go for his bar mitzvah in March!

Red or blue??

These images were created for a NY interior designer. His client was wearing a pair of shoes like this and he wanted to incorporate a very large scale image of something like them into his apartment.

I think shoelaces are harder to draw than faces: shadow, shadow, shadow, highlight. Beat up old shoes seem to have a very distinct personality. I modeled these after a pair of my son’s old ones. Wasn’t sure I’d ever finish. We’re working with the base of the shoe color now as well as the cropping to figure out what looks best. Once printed, I’ll sign the piece.

Michael's Sign-In Book

Book Cover ideas for sign in books! Here’s a great example of the difference a great background image can make. All sign-in books are 13” x 10” and come with a matching dust jacket.

Fun “night club” version with color choices of lime green, yellow and turquoise.

Michael looks great and ready-to-go for his Bar Mitzvah! Michael’s mom wanted a sign-in book for Michael just like she had made for his brother Jason a few years ago. Time flies!

Looking forward to spending next week updating and designing my new app. What will it be? Right now that has to stay a surprise!


Stunning Rachel

Here’s a pretty one! Rachel looks absolutely gorgeous for her Bat Mitzvah! Rachel is wearing a fushia dress with a theme of butterflies. I had fun drawing this. Gorgeous hair, beautiful smile Rachel is ready for her big day!

What a beauty Marissa is and what a pleasure it was to draw her. Marissa’s event colors are pink and black and we had a great time with them even incorporating them into a metallic card stock for the back of her invitations (not shown). Marissa wrote me this: “OMG, the invitations are amazing! I have never seen such a cool invitation.” I love it when the kids are happy.

And More!: This is PERFECT, Liz! Let’s go with it! SOooo excited! Thank YOU! ~Debbie

And More!: Oh Liz—You are wonderful! Thank you for the heads up on the “boys will be boys”* thing. If that happened I now that Ariel would be devastated! Oy! Thank you for EVERYTHING! Can’t wait to show off this poster!! Can’t wait! ~Debbie

*Illustrator's note: "Boys will be boys" references the possibility that a mustache could be drawn on the sign-in-board image by some wild teenage boy you didn't want to invite anyway. If this happens, it's not a problem! We simply have another print made of the sign in art. The portrait image is cut out and placed over the mustached one. Viola! It looks fantastic and flawless!

Finished my second twin for the Don Draper Bar Mitzvah. Gave a lot of thought of how to best position the boys so I could come up with the group picture to uniquely express their individual personalities. I wanted completely different facial expressions and body positions which were different yet equal. I think I got it.

"Don Draper" Bar Mitzvah

Here's an incredibly handsome guy named Idan. Not only is Idan handsome he also has a brother who is equally handsome since they're identical twins. Mom wanted the guys to look similar but different. I thought by having one stand and one sit we could incorporate both of them into the same image for a welcome sign or banner. I really worked with the lighting on this image, I wanted an intense light and look from our young man. Don Draper, the gorgeous sophisticate from the Mad Men series was my muse while I was drawing. Idan looks fabulous!

Frank Sinatra Theme!

Here's my latest bar mitz, complete with sign in art and event poster/invite cover. I had a great time with this one. I used the boy's last name, Ratner, in the sign-in art and called it "The Ratner Pack" for that tie in to the Dean/Sammy/Frank element. I was trying to make him look like he was escaping from the paparazzi with the lights and the urban wall.

I was able to bring them in today to be mounted for the big day. We hope to order more from you in the future. Our heartfelt thanks,  Troi and Jenna

More speed! More Power!

Here I modified my client Ginny's fabulous 90-year-old Mother's illustration. Ginny is so fun and creative and wanted "more speed" and "more action"! After all, nothing stops this Mom! She even bashed that thing into the back of an elevator when she was learning! Go Mom!

Ginny's Mom is on-the-go!

Here's some fun. My client Ginny's Mom's birthday is coming up and Ginny wanted to surprise her. So we drew Mom with her favorite toys, her red scooter and her dog. We threw in coordinating shoes and an outfit and Mom's pooch had to be drawn with floppy ears and energy. This image will be 18" square and printed on acid free paper with archival inks.

Hopin' third times the charm!

Picture 12

3rd go at this logo. Changing of concepts as far as the meaning of "fresh" in Get Fresh. At first the concept of "fresh" was to be represented by a wink. Hmm, that just didn't work. The second one was just not quite there as the feeling was a bit too "fresh" (as in trouble maker) and wasn't sweet enough. For this third version, we will see if this cute and adorable concept in "Fresh", as in young and fresh, works. (Provided about 6-8 hand drawn rough sketches before that too!) It's all about bringing the right meaning of the store name to a memorable character reference that will please customers.

Some logo concepts go much faster but logo design can be a process until the client hits that eureka moment. Once I spent a week with a corporate client not sure on "just the right shade of brown." That's the job.


Here's a fun sports-lovin' guy named Jason. Jason's bar mitzvah is right around the corner! Mazel Tov Jason!

Casey's Finished Sign in Board

Here's another gorgeous idea. My wonderful client Casey and her mom Madelyn sent me this image of her graphic "post party". Instead of the poster, they selected archival paper with archival inks. The image was printed with a large white border which her guests signed. Grandmom loved it too so a second print was sent to her. Mazel tov Casey!


Here's what mom had to say: Hi Liz - I thought you would like to see the finished product of Casey's signing board....just fabulous!!!  It is already hanging on her wall. Everyone at the party LOVED it. So thank you so much for your beautiful work!!! Best Wishes, Madelyn

Chef Ben!

Here's Chef Ben whipping up the ingredients for a FABULOUS Bar Mitzvah! What a great theme. Ben's parents requested a more formal body image for the temple and the fun theme image for the event. The stylized graphic behind Ben was custom designed to coordinate with his Chef concept. The swirls represent a plate and spoon, essential elements of the trade.

Here's what my client had to say: Liz, I just looked at both these animations and they both work perfectly and are just delicious!  Our community is going to LOVE them.  I can't wait to hear the reactions -- just can't wait.

And they came right in the nick of time -- thanks for pushing the fixes up.  I did a lot with this project today, including using some of the still images you sent me before, which I can use for almost-animated versions.  They look great, too. 

The animations are the icing on the cake, which I will intersperse, and maybe ask you to put a few more together later on.  (I have more ideas than money!)

Many, many thanks. ~Ginny

And yet another nice comment!: I'm glad to hear how fun this work is for you, Liz -- mine is for me, too.  But your art is so soulful and inventive, whether it's on the fun side, tender, provocative, or zany.  I love seeing each new image. ~Ginny

Man of Peace - Animation for Podcast

I had the great opportunity to work again with my wonderful client The Friends Council on Education. We are revisiting a previous image I had drawn of Mr. William Penn and are spicing it up for a podcast. All in all we are making Mr. Penn Wave, my client (not pictured here) kick up her leg, Mr. Penn's hat fly off and a dove with an olive branch fly in and land on his shoulder. I am also including a cityscape that will be zoomed in on in the intro. I am including some of the illustrations that will be used by their animator in Flash. What a fun job! What a great client!

Here's some real fun! This graphic was created for a series of educational podcasts for the Friends Council on Education. I actually created two screens, a sign-on and a sign-off screen. My client wanted her image only on the exit image and requested a "bemused" expression on William Penn. She also wanted to be standing on top of city hall in Philadelphia with his stature! Wow, I think we've got it!

The whole shebang!

Picture 22

I'm having some fun here. This graphic has a lot going on. A full body graphic, an Indiana Jones theme, a New York night sky and the event will be held on a boat. This is a few steps up from the standard portrait package but will blow up unbelievably into a gorgeous print. Unlike most full body illustrations, the same amount of attention as a standard portrait was put into the Bar Mitzvah's face so that it could also be used as a stand alone blow up on its own. The intended use of the graphic is a welcoming sign onto the boat, sign-in art, table tents, place cards as well as being incorporated into the custom invitations. (For the layman reading this please note that the word "proof" has been written across the graphic for protection purposes. This will, of course, be removed when printing.)

One thing to keep in mind is that my artwork is drawn with the intent of blowing up BIG! Massive detail work is put into the graphics which can't be seen on the teeny tiny scale of the computer. Here's a blow up of the bar mitzvah's eye. These illustrations are super detailed and intense to draw!

My artwork is meant to be seen LARGE. Which means on the teeny-tiny format of the computer you are missing some of the POW! of my poster-sized pieces. Here's an example of Elise, a lovely girl with lovely fine soft features which can get a bit washed out on the small screen. I've blown up parts of the image and, as you can see, when they are blown up even this little bit you can see so much more of the details and shading which make the pieces so rich and engaging.

...and here's the sparkle version! They really pop. I created the difference by layering a series of the lighter shades within the eyes with a variety of gradients. Further I added additional shading and highlights to the outside of the eyes to draw in the viewer. Its a subtle but very powerful difference that really changes the viewers perception.






Evan's Bar Mitzvah-on site!

Here's our Evan on site at his Bar Mitzvah with his sign-in-board. What a handsome guy! Its so great to get emailed these final photos. After I've spent about four hours illustrating someone and getting into the "zone" I feel like I personally know them, despite the fact that my clients are all over the country.

From the client:
Hi Liz,
Here are a few pics of the poster at Evan's duckpin bowling party tonight. Everyone loved it!


Meant to be big

My artwork is designed to be blown up HUGE! As you can see from the detail here from "sarah's right eye (scroll down to the bottom of the page for sarah's whole image) . Shown in the teenie, tiny scale of the internet really takes some of the power away from them. If I only had to worry about my work appearing on the net I could probably cut down my illustration time to 1/4.

To get that wow factor, I include a FREE portrait poster with the basic package. Its a huge 2' x 3'.


Breaking the Glass Ceiling


Well, I've been working on that book cover for Diane Dutton. If you've been here before you've read how I did the test image based on myself. Diane has a fabulous website named http://www.businesswomenspeak.com/. She provides straight, clear ideas concerning how to get your voice heard in a male-dominated financial field. This cover is for her book called, "Soar Beyond the Glass Ceiling: Lock in on the secret weapons gauranteed to rocket your career." If you're interested, you can purchase the book with the old cover and title at this address: http://www.businesswomenspeak.com/womenladder.htm



Portrait Poster at a Bat Mitzvah

I was just emailed this from one of my Bat Mitzvahs. In this case the mom used the poster to highlight where the sign-in books were and to help direct the guests to different locations. We also offer mini-poster prints (actually not so mini 11" x 17"!) for only $8.99 in our shop sites. These are great on doors and outside the building for parking etc. Don't forget the art makes great thank you cards too, all available in your shop. Don't forget this poster art is included in your portrait purchase.
