A business mentor of mine once said that gaining new customers is great, but having return customers is a greater sign - a validation. Back in 2020, a father reached out for a commission as his son's high school graduation gift. Years later, that same person reached out again for another commission to cap off his son's college career. Here's a look back at both custom art projects.
High School commission:
A pic was sent once the finished piece was framed and hung up on the wall. These are some of my favorite moments as a creator.
Some of these progress pics were taken with objects used to keep the surprise as I was posting the developments on social media channels.
When I got this commission request for his college graduation, the thought all those years having gone by blew my mind, but I also didn't want to disappoint. Regardless, I was grateful to be doing another piece.
After the finished piece was shipped and received, his father recently sent me a pic with both commissions, highlighting his son's lacrosse career, which I guess you can call, in art terms, a collection? :o)
