Sponsor giveaway: Meeralee

Meeralee giveaway

Meeralee is an artist residing in the east coast of USA who loves doing custom work and commissions! Her specialty is ink and line drawings (they’re really detailed!) where she adds flora, fauna, and nautical-inspired elements that frame your face.

As a sponsor, she’ll draw a custom portrait for ONE lucky Pikaland reader that’s worth USD$80! (Take your pick of a black and white line drawing or a watercolor rendering.)

Just comment in this post by the 7th of December to be in the running and you might be the winner of a truly personal gift (and just in time for Christmas too!)

*UPDATE: Commenting has now closed, thanks so much for participating. The winner of this giveaway is cerenaleigh as chosen via random.org!

Beautiful illustrations by Violeta Lópiz — an illustrator currently based in Berlin who hails from Ibiza. His style is unmistakably retro and yet at the same time, infuses modern strokes to convey subject matters as complex as finance and business (he illustrates for The Economist as well) to simple, yet meaningful illustrations for children’s books. He’s indeed a gifted artist with the ability to render illustrations in various styles and character!
