Ben & Perry's

A new customer requested a birthday card for "Grampa Ben". He is an architect and, I am told, a bit narcoleptic. He can apparently fix anything that needs doing around the house, and also travels a great deal, from Toronto to his grandchildren in New Jersey and Palo Alto in the United States, and Ra'anana, Israel.
I have shown Grampa Ben with some architectural drawings rolled up in his arms. He has a hammer in his other hand, and yellow hard hat and some nails and tools nearby. The flags of Canada, the United States and Israel, along with an aeroplane, represent his busy travel schedule. Grampa Ben always wears a small black kippa, oh, and he might just be about to have a little snooze too... 
Savta Perry (Savta is the Hebrew word for Grandma) loves skiing and is a patron of the ballet. She was due to travel to Thailand and Myanmar (Burma) for her birthday.
I have shown her in a red snowsuit (the photo I was sent of Savta Perry showed her in an elegant red dress, so I figured she likes the colour red!), against a backdrop of snow-capped mountains. In her hands she holds a pair of skis and also some pink ballet shoes. Once again an aeroplane appears on the card, along with the flags of the two countries she was visiting.
I am delighted to say that my customer, a first-time buyer, left me some wonderful feedback in my Etsy shop. "Absolutely uncanny resemblance!!!" she wrote. "Thanks for such super personalised cards and very quick service."
