Husband Hires 24 Artists to Make His Wife’s Birthday Perfect. Her Reaction Proves He Nailed It…

Nov 12, 2014 By Megan Berman

Ernst Berlin wanted to make his wife’s first birthday with their new baby really special; so he turned to Reddit Gets Drawn, where artists of a variety of styles will interpret your photographs for you. He commissioned 24 artists to draw portraits of their adorable 8-month-old son Jacob.

After giving the artists 40 photographs to choose from and a deadline of two months, Berlin ended up with some really sweet and imaginative portraits.

Here are some examples (and don’t miss the big reveal at the end)…

    I love so many! How can I get the name/email/website of one of the artists? Would like to inquire about getting a drawing/painting done of my children. Thank you.

    1. KKS says:

      Doubtful he’ll see your comment here, maybe, but maybe not. Best try to contact him via the YouTube video posted above.

  2. Julie says:

    I’d like to find out who the artist is for the third portrait (the one with the towel on the baby’s head). How can I find that information out?
