Dolphin and Possum

I was recently commissioned to create a wonderfully romantic illustration.

Aaron and Liz Hebert were about to celebrate their first wedding anniversary. The had recently visited New Orleans where they discovered Beatrice Moon, a gypsy poet with a card table and a vintage typewriter, selling poems in Jackson Square. Beatrice wrote a charming poem for the Heberts about their spirit animals — the Dolphin and the Possum. Aaron secretly asked me to create an illustration to accompany the poem as an anniversary gift.

The result was a charming and personal gift fit for a wonderful couple!
