I found an amazing company For gifts that are really personal and you all know by now i am a sucker for a personalised gift.
If you are like me and want to give something as a gift that has had a lot of thought and work put in to it then comicsus.com is for you.Here is a little about them from Their website.
"We are not a limited company, we’re just a bunch of friendly hard
working people living in the hearth of Scotland, Edinburgh and here you
see the fruits of our collective labour. Only we can offer reasonably
priced hand drawn personalised illustrations. We create all of our work
from scratch so it would definitely be a unique gift for yourself or
your loved one.
Our star is a professional artist Sam who has already had a chance to
work with some famous commercial clients when creating different
illustrations, comic books and animation. He can also help you with
commercial advertising material, corporate website cartoons, caricatures
or any other like of drawings."
Make yourself or someone you know in to a superhero or a cartoon that you love Comicsus will make your dreams come true and all you have to do is upload your photos to their website and set the scene and they will do the rest.
Let me tell you about my journey with Comicsus.
Firstly i spoke with the team to discuss my options and they were so helpful in explaining everything including that They never charge for a 2nd person or house pet as they believe that a couple should be classed as one (i love that) Most other companies that do cartoons of you will charge around £20 for an extra person which is a bit unfair if you want your husband or wife in the picture with you.After the 2nd person They will only charge £15 per extra if lets say you want a group done.
You can head to Their website and have a look around and get some ideas of what you would like to have done and there is nothing that this wonderful team can not do. And your drawing will be done by hand from scratch.
It takes 5 simple steps to get started and send your ideas to The team.
So for me i wanted something for Hubby for valentines so i was thinking really hard about what i wanted and then i thought of something i sent in this picture along with pics of myself hubby and belinda.
Also when ordering you can decide if you would just like a digital download of your drawing or sent to you on canvas or as a poster,Here is another great part if you live in USA or anywhere else They will send as a digital copy to download which you can then print out/send to your local print shop and get done on a canvas or whatever else you want.
Now i thought it would take a long time to get started but a few days later i got an email notification from the website letting me know the first sketch had been done and i had to go and look at it make sure i was happy to let them know if i wanted anything changed or click on accept so they could start the colouring.
So of course i clicked Accept i was then notified that the date they would be finished would be the 14th of Feb I was happy with this as i know it takes alot of work and time to do this,Imagine my surprise when on i think the 28th of Jan saying they had finished earlier than expected and i could go ahead and take a look at it and that they would be sending me my canvas within 5 days and true to Their word on Saturday guess what turned up :-).
Ok first here is the finished drawing that i downloaded i love it so much and it does honestly look perfect even Hubs was impressed and as i have told you before it has to be good if hubby likes it lol.
So now for the Canvas.
Now to find it a perfect place to stay but since i wanted this for hubby he is going to choose where though the kiddies keep asking to have it in their rooms so i printed out some copies so they could each have one and my oldest was telling the friend she had over yesterday that her mum and dad are the real Cinderella and prince charming lol.
I really can not tell enough people about Comicsus you will be impresses and love the work they do and remember if you want hubby or wifey on there a couple is one :-)
Head on over and check out you will not be disappointed.
So what do you think and what would you get done?
