I am looking to get a full portrait of my mother done, and I want to find a good artist, but am new to the area and don't really know who to look for. Live in the Grand Rapids area and am willing to travel up to 2 1/2 hours around here.

Know of anyone?

What he said. For sure. I was at the Detroit Convention yesterday. Saw an amazing portrait done at the booth right behind where I was being tattoo'd, and I wish I would have got a pic and the name, but the position I was in didnt lend well. It was sick. Wasnt local though. Dude sat for 6 hours. Pic of his kid from the front page of the Detroit news with a tigers hat and baseball screaming. It was awesome..

Also saw this chic do a piece last night. She won best of day. It was a more Traditional gypsy, but her shit is clean and her portraits look great.

OP, sorry your thread is now derailed, but See post 2 for correct answer. Anything else is not correct.
