What do you gift someone who’s turning 40? A book with 40 pages of his life, in pictures! 🙂

I recently created a personalised comic book for a lovely lady in Singapore, and she gifted it to her husband on his birthday. We went through all the years of his life, scene by scene, and I think everyone involved was delighted with the result! Here are a few pages!

It’s that magical season again! I love the months of September to December because of all the wedding invites that I get to design and the fascinating love stories I get to hear  🙂

Here‘s a photo book I recently worked on for a couple celebrating their 5th anniversary (gifted by the wife to her husband). View as a slideshow here.

A personalised comic story gifted by a lovely lady to her husband. They’re a Portugese couple who’ve travelled the world! What better way to document their memories than in stick figure pictures from each place 🙂 From meeting in a disco in Macao to making snowmen in Turkey, from the proposal at Tiffany’s to chasing kangaroos in Australia, the scenes of this story were a delight to work on 🙂
