I've just designed a mug for my son-in-law for Christmas with zazzle, featuring thjs digital image of my daughter.
I originally created a couple of versions of this image - one in colour and one in a limited palette. I mixed a photograph of my daughter and her belongings (much manipulated) with a section of a Dante Gabriel Rossetti painting. You can see the coloured version below. She is the one on the left.
I continued the mirror image theme, with 3 repetitions, the middle one flipped, so that it wraps around the mug.
And .... to go with his snowman book that I wrote/illustrated for Christmas, I've put illustrations from it onto an apron that Sam can wear for painting and a Tshirt.
Let's hope we like them all! I haven't ordered anything like this before - if I'm happy with the quality I may think of opening a Zazzle shop.
Sorry I've been absent for a while - family health problems cropped up again with a lot of hospital visiting - hopefully ok for now, though parole isn't until Monday :>) The cats will be very happy then :>)
