Kelly O’Neill’s Drawing of Elias

by jessicaturner on September 15, 2009

I have been so excited to share Kelly O’Neill’s drawing of Elias, but I wanted to wait until after grandparents’ day because we gifted our parents with prints of the drawing.

So, without further adieu…
Isn’t it amazing?

She did such a great job capturing Elias, especially his bright eyes. Everyone we show is astonished by how much it looks like him.

The drawing took Kelly about 4.5 hours, but she and her husband created this time-lapsed video where you can see her do the whole thing in two minutes. Check it out. It rocks.


I can’t recommend Kelly highly enough. She is immensely talented, kind and is blessed with skill far beyond her years. If you are looking for the perfect family heirloom or gift, I can’t say enough about Kelly. I know you would love working with her.

Kelly is doing a special offer for Mom Creative readers. If you contact her to do a drawing for you or someone you love, with your order she will throw in three free 8×10 prints- a $75 value! These make awesome gifts – perfect for Christmas. This offer is good through the end of the year.

This is so precious. We have a colored chalk one of our son, when he was about 5.
Love it.
