Talk about a Custom Gift!

Updated: Dec 29, 2022

At Marianne Orlando Illustrations, we help people celebrate life's milestones, through custom, made-to-order, commissioned drawings. My clients realize milestones are bittersweet -- signaling the end of something old and the beginning of something new.

The drawing you see here was commissioned as a gift to a girlhood friend whose home where she grew up was just sold. And the client wanted to celebrate that her parents worked for TWA so she asked me to add a jet to the drawing.

I happily obliged. People commission me to celebrate their parents' downsizing, wedding anniversaries, birthdays, retirements, getting a new job, and even memorials. They are always looking for ways to show their thoughtfulness -- through custom gifts. I've had people be so surprised and delighted to receive a custom drawing of their home, pets or relatives that, my clients tell me, they have broken into tears. Please visit my website at to learn more about me and my work. Thanks.
