Crown of Love

 Last week I received a cryptic message directing me to a tumblr site, although I was unsure of what lay ahead of me I was absolutely delighted to see the first portrait staring back at me! 

You can imagine my surprise when I awoke this morning to find a second portrait, just as beautiful as the first. I adore the soft shading and line work of these illustrations and the similarity to the original photographs is uncanny! I'll be cherishing these babies forever.

You can see more beautiful illustrations of various subjects from Jean Serberg to Bjork over at avalonprand's tumblr.


  1. WOW! they are lovely and the likeness is amazing. There are some HILARIOUS celebrity portraits out there, if you ever have any spare time d need a LOL, google some.

  2. Beautiful--especially the first one. The shading and detail are incredible, plus the portraits did the most important thing and captured your essence.

  3. Very beautiful portraits! Amazing how similar the original photos!

  4. Absolutely stunning! They have captured you perfectly and what a lovely thing for you to have. I hope you are going to print them out and put them up in your new apratment. :-) xx

  5. I love the quality of these illustrations... makes me feel as though it's a portrait from the 1920's or something. Absolutely wonderful!


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment, I just love hearing from you x
