Meet Graham | Carly Watt's magical illustration

It was my lovely boyfriend's birthday on 11 April so to celebrate we decided to venture off to pretty Portugal (shots to come soon!) Once back home, I was especially excited to show Graham this gorgeous, majestic illustration that Carly kindly created for him as a birthday present. I had it printed off in poster form, and he was over the moon just as I'd hoped. Carly has included some of Graham's favourite things in her beaut illustration; everything from Marvel comics to Star Wars to the fluffy mallow himself, Mr Staypuft. So much gorgeousness set against a backdrop of blue and black, Graham's favourite colours. 

Carly kindly illustrated my ombre-fied self based on a favourite shot of mine last year and knowing how taken G was with it, I definitely knew he'd treasure a seriously sweet illustration of his own. I'm sure everyone is familiar with the beauty that is Carly and her stunning works of art. You can check out her beautiful blog here. Thank you once again from both Graham and I Carly, you truly are such a diamond! And whilst here I've gotta say thank you so much to Graham and Carly for always believing in me and being so supportive. I feel so lucky and blessed to have such special people in my life such as yourselves! Both mine and Graham's illustrations are so very special to us and really mean the world. Both will most definitely be framed and treasured and loved, that's a promise!
