Are you looking for a custom illustration for you or someone special? You’re in the right place!

These illustrations are about you, who you are and what you do, they tell about your essence, your favorite things, your moments and memories; with these drawings I’m telling something about the real you, your friendship or your couple.

It could be that book you just finished reading, that movie you’ve watched wrapped in your cozy blanket with him on the couch or maybe that TV series you like to binge-watch at night. We can tell about that walk in the park you’re doing every day or maybe that little trip with your family or even that city you’ve just visited and you’re already missing.
What about including your favorite food? That’s a really nice idea, I love drawing food! Could you think at some dish you’ve just tasted or cooked that you want to put in?
We can also think about that coffee with your friends, or maybe that dress you can’t stop wearing, that accessory you founded in a lovely vintage shop, or even that song you’re always singing.

These illustrations are composed by several items, choose how many you’d like to include in this artwork following my guidelines for every artwork size down below. You can choose to have some hand lettered descriptive text or not (same price).
- LARGE : 30 x 40.00 cm (10-15 ITEMS)
- MEDIUM – A4: 21 x 29.70 cm (8-10 ITEMS)
- SMALL – A5: 14.85 x 21.00 cm (4-5 ITEMS)

After purchasing the artwork in the size you prefer, follow this link

and download the file you need to fill with the information about the items you want me to include in the artwork.
Send me that and some pictures or related links at polkadotsempire [!at]

After 2-3 working days you will receive a pencil sketch; we can change something and after your approval I will start with the final artwork. This could take 3 working day and it’s ready to be shipped to you!

Every illustration is made in mixed media (watercolors, markers, pens, colored pencils) on high quality watercolor paper.
Take a look at my website and my social media gallery to know a little bit more about my style, if you like it, you will love this illustration!

For the 30th birthday of one of my best friends, I decided to buy a personalized "Pencil Moments". Cinzia was super kind and patient, but above all very good! The gift arrived on time and the birthday girl really liked it. So for anyone who wants to make a gift for a special occasion, Cinzia is very good and I highly recommend "Pencil Moments"! <3

I commissioned a water color painting from Cinzia for my parents’ 40th anniversary. I sent her several photos and suggestions through email, and she communicated with me very quickly and sent me drafts. My parents absolutely loved the piece!!

We ordered a "pencil moment" to give it to a special person. Cinzia was very careful in trying to understand what we wanted to express and how to best make the product. Within a very short time he sent us the draft that we could see in detail. Then briefly he completed the work and we got home the beautiful illustration that we can't wait to deliver to the recipient. I'm sure you'll love it! Thanks to Cinzia for everything and good continuation with her beautiful works!
