My Unique Spin On Custom Portraits Posted on 22 Jun 14:55 , 7 comments
The whole robot theme of Debmon Design started with drawings of a little robot sat in an armchair, watching a movie. I first drew them during my Foundation year at Uni in 2010. When we had the opportunity to create & display some work in a local arts venue/bar called The Black Box.
In September of 2014, I opened my Etsy shop and "Movie Night" was one of the first products I listed there. Eventually, I decided the robots would enjoy some company. After all watching a film is nearly always better when done with loved ones. When you have someone to share the laughs with or to repeatedly ask about every plot twist.
Then I thought to offer customizable movie night scenes. I'd already seen quite a few custom portraits on Etsy but knew I was onto something unique. The quirkiness of the basis being robots. The composition of everyone gathered on a couch together. And the level of customization I can offer, make mine that extra bit different and charming.
The beauty is that there's so much room for adding extra details into my custom portraits. It's not just about the people in them, but their hobbies, favourite films or favourite snacks. Whatever you can come up with!
