James Van Der Beek's Family Portrait

Recently, I illustrated James Van Der Beek’s family - they’ve quickly become my latest Instagram obsession since stumbling across their accounts earlier this summer ✏️💕 James and his wife Kimberly are down-to-earth and hilarious about juggling life their 5  little ones 👱👱‍♀️👱‍♀️👱‍♀️👶 How do they manage?? I have a feeling the answer involves Netflix + a secret snack drawer to dip into when the kiddos are asleep at night 😉

The Evolution of My Portrait Illustration Style

Behind-the-scenes, Custom portraitsLaura Knopp

Earlier this week, I was digging through my messy office supply closet and couple things happened…

  • I realized I have a ton unused sequins and feathers...such a waste! Perhaps I need to bedazzle a throw pillow or my husband’s khakis??

  • I found some of my old portrait illustrations and whoa baby I’ve come a long way in terms of my drawing technique and style.

So, in honor of it being throwback thursday, I’m sharing a couple of my old illustrations today.
