Artist memorialises life with wife through 365 drawings

Marriages are made in heaven, but love stories are made on earth. With changing times the definition of love has evolved too; not many people trust the Romeo-Juliet ways of loving and living any more but a lucky few believe and live such romances. Michigan-based wedding photographer Curtis Wiklund was inspired by his wife Jordin to create a 365 days-sketch project dedicated to the daily life of his family. It’s such a sweet way to immortalise your family And their life together. In today’s times if this isn’t love then what is? His wife Jordin too had embarked on her own personal 365 days-photography project. Wiklund launched Tumblr drawing365 comprising heartwarming illustrations of their life together.

love her so much.

Everyday he would post a new memory translated into beautiful, earnest sketches. Good news is, Tumblr and is planning to publish a coffee table book of the drawings. How lovely to have a book on your life and not in a boring biographical way.

I've received a recent influx of notifications via social media, and I haven't been able to figure out why. Today I stumbled upon a post from mott.pe on Facebook (an art school in South America), sharing 20 of my sketches of me and Jordin. The post has like 30,000 likes, 13,000 shares, and a billion comments that I wish I could read! My Spanish is fairly basic. :) If you're just now finding these drawings via mott.pe, I've posted them all at http://drawings365.com There is a link on there to see just the drawings of me and Jordin too. Enjoy! I post drawings occasionally here on instagram too. I'll post a few favorites right now, then back to photography! Thanks mott.pe! Also, as a side note, a Chinese client of ours recently told me that my drawings went viral in China. Haha! I don't know how to see that, but she said it was huge, and in fact, how she found us as her photographers!
