Baby portraits are some of the most special pieces of art we create for our customers. This particular portrait of baby Jackson was created for his parents from one of his adorable newborn photography pictures.
I love Jackson's baby portrait. I like how the behind the scenes time lapse video shows each meticulous artistic step. I also love how cozy baby Jackson looks in his feather crib and knit hat, and how our artist captured all of the intricate details so beautifully.
I want to send a big thank you to our fantastic artist Devon in Schenectady, New York for his amazing video skills and artistic talent. Devon took 6 hours and 46 minutes over the course of 5 after-work weeknights to draw and film Jackson's beautiful baby portrait and Jackson's parents couldn't be happier with the adorable results!
About the Artist:
As a kid growing up in New York’s capital district Devon Hudson would sit in his room for hours with nothing but a pencil, paper, and an imagination. Creating characters and storylines that would occupy his thoughts throughout the day.
As the years went on he developed his passion for doodling into a refined ability to draw realistic pencil and charcoal portraits. In the preceding years to High School graduation in 2006 Devon never imagined it could be possible to draw portraits for a living. Instead, he pursued a Bachelors Degree in Graphic Design which he received from Sage College of Albany in 2010.
Since then Devon has worked for an advertising agency in Upstate New York as a Junior Graphic Designer, Senior Graphic Designer, and Creative Director. While doing this for a living, Devon never stopped developing his talent for drawing portraits and has drawn countless pieces for friends and family as gifts.
With a penchant for perfectionism and a dedication to creating meaningful pieces of art that touch people's lives, Devon will draw a portrait you will cherish for many years to come.
