I am just absolutely blown away! It turned out even better than I could have imagined. My dad is going to absolutely love it. You nailed the likeness and the suit looks so cool. I could not be any more thrilled with the results. Also, thanks for being so quick at getting it done. I know that you are busy. I’ll be sure to post it on my social media after I give to my dad and link it to all your sites. Hopefully I can get you to work on another piece for me in the future. Thanks again! God bless.

I don’t know what to say, other than this has turned out better than I could have hoped. I absolutely love everything about the commission, from the style to the background to the colors. Every step along the way you’ve been nothing but polite and professional and I truly appreciate it. Please pass my compliments along to the colorist as well, they did a fantastic job. [Nicholas Fonseca, Mar 2018 – Spider-Stan Commission]

To say I was impressed would be a gross understatement! I went looking for an artist that I really felt my wife would love as I was looking to get a full family photo done.when I found JL I was really excited! The whole process was absolutely fantastic from start to finish. Communication was clear, honest and upfront about everything from timeline, to cost, to process which made everything easy and pleasant. There were much appreciated regular weekly progress updates with an immaculate attention to detail, and I was blown away with her great intuition to match her impeccable creativity and skill set. Everything I imagined was put to paper and looked stunning. All my feelings aside my wife was truly taken back with the finished product and (true story!) Replaced our wedding photo on the wall with her new family portrait of us escaping a T-Rex and some raptors. After she composed herself from the initial surprise on her birthday, her exact words were, “it took every ounce of my being not to ugly cry in front of the kids!” And my wife is not a crier! 
So a million times over, thank you! I will definitely be back for more in the future and will tell everyone I know about JL Straw’s amazing skills, products and services. [Sebastian Sosnowski, Aug 2018 – Jurassic Park Commission]
