Giveaway: Modern Bird Studios


I wouldn't trust Hiro's furry face to just anyone.

Say hello to Modern Bird Studios. Just from perusing their gallery, I knew we were in very capable and talented hands. The husband and wife team went above and beyond in transforming this photo (raise your hand if you have more photos of your dog than you do of yourselves):

into this beautiful modern piece of art: Photobucket


I can't tell you enough how incredibly wonderful the Modern Bird team were to work with! Megan patiently and enthusiastically addressed all of my requests and vision, while Gregg worked his magic on translating the photo into art. I was sent updates and prompt responses every step of the way.

We're ecstatic with how they interpreted the photo, capturing Hiro's essence in such a realistic yet creative way. And by "ecstatic", I mean we happily danced around with the piece when it arrived. The piece is substantial in weight, the image is flawless, and the colors I requested exceeded my highest expectations.

I got a little emotional. I might have even kissed it.

So of course, I am beyond thrilled to announce today's giveaway sponsored by Modern Bird Studios. The Modern Bird team creates personalized modern art from your photography. They take a picture and break it down into a two-color image, which results in abstract shapes that make up the form. Then using two colors (of your choice!) to create the painting, the image is hand-painted onto thick oak composite. Voila! A gorgeously modern, artistic spin on your most treasured photos.
