The other Monday I got a phone call from a groom, getting married that Friday. Was it possible to get a ketubah to him in time? (Yes, but there’s a rush fee.)
And oh, by the way, could you possibly add some animal illustrations? (Um.. What did you have in mind?)
Well, an elephant. And a monkey. And a Himalayan cat, a Russian Blue cat and a black and white Shih-Tzu.
I was up to the challenge, and 24 hours later their customized ketubah was wending its way across the country.
This, dear reader, is what emerged (the main artwork, my Spiral of Life ketubah, was done already; the additions are the animal illustrations in the captions):
And detail shots:
Thanks to the wonder that is Photoshop I was able to paint the animals, scan them, and add them to the existing artwork so that the piece looks like it was all created at once. (I especially love the monkey’s tail curling around the vine.)
Let me know what you think!
Interested in your own customized ketubah? Just email or call me at 866-KETUBOT (866-538-8268) and I’d be happy to discuss possibilities.
