I was so happy when the wonderful Steve Gadlin said he was going to draw a cat for me! I first saw his pitch to the “sharks” on the TV show “Shark Tank”. My children were watching the show with me and went head-over-heels for the idea too! I have been wanting my very own custom drawing from Steve for quite a while now.
The idea is, you tell him what you want to see, and he draws it for you! I requested a depiction of something that happens on a daily basis here in my home. My sons (9 and 7 years old) having a pokemon battle, and my 1 1/2 year old daughter trying to get in the middle of everything. He was very spot on and the picture came out better than I expected it would. Each picture comes with a bonus digital image of your drawing so you can start sharing it before it even arrives in the mail!
Here is my digital image. I included this because I just couldn’t get an awesome picture of it framed, but I assure you it does look awesome!
As you can tell, lighting and everything wouldn’t cooperate, but I love it! So do my kids and all of my house guests, its a nice unique item to hang on the wall.
Every picture he has drawn is unique and creative. You can see every drawing he’s ever created in the gallery at I Want To Draw A Cat For You .
This is definatley a great idea for a gift as well. Its in the price range of what you would probably spend on a gift anyway, and it says a lot more to give a unique custom gift. I will be ordering one for my mother for Christmas this year 🙂
