I have very much enjoyed creating custom picture books for couples' engagements and wedding gifts. I write, draw, and design the books and then print them using either Blurb or Artifact Uprising. It is a lot of work but always ended up to be worth it, because I see that the couple cherishes it so much.
Although I have stopped taking on new commissions due to my current position, I hope to bring some element of this work back into my work in the future.
For now, I want share my process from start to finish in case anyone else would like to know how to create a custom illustrated book. Please check back in later this year! -M
