Running, Basketball and Penguins

Ro'i recently turned 20. In the past I have shown him in his olive green Israel Defence Forces uniform and waving a Chelsea F.C. scarf . This year his mum asked me to make a card showing him running and using his dad's car. She also asked me to include the Paratroopers Brigade (חטיבת הצנחנים) insignia, the military unit that Ro'i belongs to. A big number 20 marks his age.
"I picked up the card last night and it's fabulous!" she wrote to me.
Benjo, one of Ro'i's younger brothers, was turning 9. Last year swimming was his thing but now mum tells me that he loves basketball. He watches the NBA when he can and goes to basketball training twice a week.
I showed Benjo dribbling a basketball on his birthday card. There is a hoop behind him and I added the NBA logo too. Mum said that he mostly wears blue or grey T-shirts, so I dressed him accordingly and added the blue trainers that he was wearing in the photo she sent me as well.
"Benjo is going to LOVE the card!" she wrote to me, then followed up with these fabulous photos of him happily showing it off, top. It is always so lovely to receive photos such as these from happy customers. They really do make my day.
Benjo's younger brother, Eilon, apparently loves penguins. Lockdown has allowed me time for a good sort-out and I went through some of my older stock one day. I advertised some pieces on my Facebook business page and Eilon's mum spotted this cute penguin picture. Once again she sent me this delightful photo. "He was so happy" she told me.
If you too would like some sweet art for your walls, there are still some pieces available in the sale album.

I'm so happy your art is selling but I'm not surprised. Your artistic creations seem to grab attention and demand I look at it.
