Custom Portrait Drawing

We all have a story to tell and a purpose per pose. A portrait visualizes an event, celebration, or experience that words, photos, songs, or videos cannot. A combination of thought, character, state of mind, emotion, and pose expresses the moment to remember and inspire daily. The custom portraits combine elements of personality and experience that go beyond just representation. Fill your walls with the faces you know and love!

Time-lapse Process

Each portrait is drawn with an Apple Pencil on an iPad to create great detail and printing capabilities. Drawings general take 10-15 hours to complete. View the time-lapse videos to see the custom portrait drawing process in action.

David Wennemar

My portrait drawings incorporate realistic elements in a surrealistic story. I like how the human face is timeless, captivating, and always challenging to draw. I use relatable elements with the figure to draw context to content. There is a constant sense of hope, a little humor, and trying to go beyond the everyday in each drawing.
