SD Portraits

Tonight, I've been clearing out our bookcase. Moving house is always a good moment to clear out old junk -- and there are a lot of books that we want to get rid of. Books are pretty heavy, so having lots of books means having lots of boxes to move. And why should you, if it means lugging books around that you never will so much as glance at?

There was also a cardboard folder that contained some spare wedding invitations and some full-size prints of the portraits we commissioned from nikogeyer. You see, we wanted to have an anime-themed wedding invitation. We took mugshots and full body photos and sent them to him. nikogeyer made super-deformed portraits of us -- clothing and all. It took him a while, but he made two portraits of the both of us: one in casual attire (he really drew our everyday clothes very well), and one of us in wedding clothes. Apparently the concept of a bearded super-deformed character was unique and quite a challenge to him. :)

When we went to the printer to have our wedding invitations made, we took a CDR with the high-quality TIFs with us, and handed them to the designer. He went downstairs to print 'em out, and when he came back up a minute later, he was very, very enthusiastic. "How incredibly cool!" he exclaimed, and everyone in the shop wanted to check it out. :)

Some of you will have already seen the invitation (because we sent you one), but others might never have seen the portraits. It's the source of my default icon, as well.

Note that the drawings are signed 'NG', nikogeyer's initials. But because of the 'box' around the initials, people thought it said 'ING' and thought klik had drawn these portraits!

P., a colleague of mine, made a black-and-white version of the casual portrait, and we had a stamp made out of that. We use that to 'sign' envelopes of letters we send off with personal mail.
