Hitched

I was recently commissioned to create an illustration to commemorate a wedding. The brief was: fairground memorabilia, birds, old fashioned teacups and a landscape. I must admit to feeling quite ill when I thought about how I could incorporate all these things. However once I started, the picture came together magically and I really enjoyed drawing it. So great too that I was given the chance to produce something with such unusual subject matter in the first place. It certainly stretched my brain a little lot - always a good thing!
Here's to Theresa and William who got 'hitched' last Monday.
For the Illustration Friday theme of 'hitched'.
