  1. Actually, I commissioned one for a friend’s wedding about 4 years ago. Probably one of the last ones that the artist did by hand before Haptic took off, Also, she happened to be coming to Vancouver from NYC so she even dropped it off to me in person. It’s a street of East Vancouver and it was beautiful!
