@BeeEuphoric:  I don’t know any artists, but I think that is a really fun and meaningful idea!

@BeeEuphoric:  I know a few people who are involved with another forum I frequent. Give me a second to grab their store links.

This woman did a custom drawing from a picture of my husband’s dog for our monthaversary: http://www.etsy.com/shop/aphotica (She’s a WONDERFUL person. I adore her.)

Another, she does stunning work. I know her “personally” from the forums, but I have never commissioned her: http://www.etsy.com/shop/helloheath?ref=si_shop

Here is another, she will be making my wedding topper (It will be a figurine, not some of the work in her Etsy shop): http://www.etsy.com/shop/RisaRocksIt

I can personally vouch for the validity of these people. They’re very real and very dedicated to their craft.

I’ll update if I find any more.

Edit: One more, she offered to do artwork for my parents for our wedding: http://lozartist.deviantart.com/

Do you have a local art school? Or local college with an art program? I bet a student there would be able to do somthing like that for you, and could add it to their portfolio so double win.

I would post in the Craigslist section of major cities who have big art schools (San Francisco, New York, Providence)

Some starving artist student will be able to help you out for sure.
