The story behind Easel & Bear

We are George & Lucy AKA Easel & Bear, formed in 2016 and based in Chester. We both have years of experience in illustration, graphic design, animation and photography and decided to put our heads together to launch our very own creative biz! We lovingly draw bespoke custom portraits for individuals, couples and families, with most that we draw given as gifts and we love knowing that we can bring a bit of joy to these special occasions.

Fuelled by our passion for art, stationery, typography and drawing, we love squirrelling away in our home office creating exciting products together with each print hand finished and packaged in our studio. We work around the clock making sure each order is promptly finalised and finished to our highest standard.

Thanks so much for visiting our shop and we look forward to creating your custom order!

Frequently asked questions
What's your turnaround time?

Please see the shipping time on each listing for current turn around times. Our times will depend on how many orders we have in our queue at the time of your order.

We will always keep you updated if anything will prolong your estimated order time. After you've received your first version, we allow up to two revisions for anything you would like tweaked!

What background can I choose?

We offer five different backgrounds that include, City, Park, Mountain, Beach and Christmas so you'll be sure to find one that suits you.

What can I have written on my portrait?

Anything you like! Some ideas are, your names, your family name, an important date or even your favourite quote. The sky is the limit!

Wholesale availability

Please send us a message on Etsy if you're interested in stocking any of our products, we will be happy to discuss!

I don't have a photo with everybody in it, can I send more than one photo?

You can send us as many photos as you like - and they don't need to be just one photo featuring everyone in your custom portrait. Individual photos of everybody are perfectly fine, just make sure the photos are clear and we can see each person's face. The more photos the better!

Do you draw custom backgrounds?

Yes! We love drawing custom backgrounds and making your portrait dreams come to life. Just drop us a message and we can discuss your idea. If possible, send us some reference photos of your location - or photos from online will work. too. Please note that we charge an additional £30 for a bespoke background.

Do you ship wordwide?

Yes we do! We offer free delivery worldwide on our portrait prints. Our greeting card delivery prices will vary so please refer to the listing.

Tell me more about your art style

Our portraits feature a bright and cute cartoon art style and we use reference photos provided by you to create an overall likeness of the person. We use dot eyes rather than very realistic eyes, as this really suits our modern and clean style. Please note that our illustrations are not intended to be exact/realistic but more of a whimsical and fun gift.

How do I print my digital file?

We provide JPEG and PDF files suitable for printing up to A4 in size.

It’s perfectly suitable to print at home depending on the quality of your printer, we recommend using a heavy weight matte photo paper.

If home printing isn’t an option for you, we offer prints with free worldwide delivery at an extra cost of £10. You’re also more than welcome to use your local print shop.

How many people/pets do I select?

Please note that any animals you want included in the portrait, will count as an additional person/pet when you are ordering. For example, you’d like 2 people with 2 cats in your portrait - this would total 4 people/pets. Or, you’d like 1 person with 4 dogs - this would total 5 people/pets.
