Free Crappy Portraits

Pin It!

So what feels like a jillion years ago, I submitted a picture of me, Brandon and Lucy to this fabulous website. Have you heard of it? Basically you send in a photograph and if they like it, they'll draw you a picture and send it back to you. In my submission, I told them that I was studying to become a librarian, and that Brandon played in an 80's cover band and surfed prior to crossing over into the legal world. I sent in two photos, one of our engagement pics with Lucy in it, and this old picture from one of Brandon's shows:
I never heard back and assumed we didn't get picked. Much to my surprise I received this gem in my email inbox a couple of days ago. 
What do you guys think? Too funny right!? I love that they gave Brandon a tan. If they only knew that he is capable of achieving only two shades, "white" and "off white". I also love how Lucy is perched on his hand, and I'm holding a book. This is clearly fridge material, so that's where it proudly resides: 
Librarians Love To Rock
