Pencil Portraits - Personal Touch Portraits   
An exciting, interesting and affordable concept in portraiture. Artist Richard Hackett came up
with this idea several years ago and it is a great way to have a portrait of someone you love
coupled with an illustration that portrays an aspect of their personality, or even a hobby or occupation.
Mr. Hackett illustrated over 70 themes in pencil and reproduced them on a high quality paper.
There is blank space left in each illustration to allow for the addition of an original portrait in pencil.

To have one of these portraits in your home or office, simply follow these three steps:
1. Choose from the list of available background illustrations listed below that depict a favorite past-tme,
sport, hobby, or occupation.
2. Choose a good, clear photo, (preferably 5"x 7" or larger) either color or black and white.
Remember that this is a "what you see is what you get" situation, so make sure the photo you send
me is one you really like.
3. Mail or e-mail that photo to me along with the name of the chosen background and I will begin
your portrait. If you live in the Fort Wayne, Indiana area, we can arrange to meet if you prefer.
