An email comes in, that starts a little something like this...
Hi, I'd love to commission something from you for my daughters - they're the Gale Force Twins, and they've mentioned your art to me a few times...
OK so #1 - YES I've heard of them!
#2 - They mentioned ME? That's crazy!
(If you don't know the Gale Force Twins, you should definitely go check out their YouTube channel - they make some incredibly informative videos about fishing and all kinds of other outdoors-y fun stuff)
Not gonna lie I fan-girled out for a minute there, but was also super-stoked to get started on the concept...their mother wanted me to create a piece as a gift with their logo, and 2 of the same pelagic fish. Twinning gone offshore. I love it.
I chose wahoo, since I thought their shape and overall appearance would go nicely with the logo design.
