I’ve been having fun with stick figure couples! A couple of weeks ago I added listings to my Etsy store for custom Valentine’s Day cards with personalised stick figure drawings. They seemed to be quite popular, with several orders coming in on Etsy that week and a few others via social media as well. And they were so much fun to do!
Here’s an example of a drawing I did of myself and my own squeeze for Valentine’s Day.
I ask for photographs where possible for drawing custom orders, as it makes it a lot easier than trying to go by descriptions of what people look like! After drawing the black and white outline of the couple in ink, I scan it in and add colour digitally as well as adapting the text where necessary. Some orders included really cute and personalised text which made me all soppy and happy that there’s so much love around!
Here are some sample cards made with different stick figure couples…
The cards were originally set up as a Valentine’s Day listing on Etsy, but they’re suitable for all ‘coupley’ occasions like Anniversaries, etc so I’ve made them more general now.
The custom orders I’ve done have included a variety of clothes and all sorts of different looking couples – it’s been great trying to capture each person’s ‘look’ in cartoon form 🙂
Here’s a link to the latest listing if you want to take a look – just click on the image:
