James Van Der Beek's Family Portrait

Custom portraits, Family portraitsLaura KnoppComment

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 😉

Here’s the family portrait I drew of them…



And below is the original photo (can you even handle the cuteness of their 5 kiddos?)...



I really enjoyed illustrating this piece - drawing large families is something I’ve been wanting to do more of and this was the perfect opportunity.

And, the best part? After sharing this portrait on Instagram, Kimberly Van Der Beek was kind enough to leave a sweet comment on my post, then I was able to mail the portrait and now it’s hanging in their home! Check my Instagram Story highlight here to hear Kimberly talk about it :)


So, yeah - I’m now a fan for life!
