Artist Jennifer Vallez painted a watercolour version of Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively’s cute red carpet family-reveal and she’s become the very definition of an overnight sensation in the process.
You might remember that Ryan and Blake took the opportunity to debut their daughters, James (2) and Ines (4 months), at Ryan’s Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony on December 15?
After seeing the first shots of the Reynolds-Lively clan, artist Jennifer illustrated a sweet version of the family’s appearance and posted it to Instagram, tagging the famous couple in her caption.
“Made my night”
Blake was super-delighted with this art-imitates-life moment and shared the image to her own Instagram account.
It caused a ripple of excited admiration and made Jennifer everybody’s favourite family portrait artist in a flash.
“…well this made my night. Thank you!” Blake posted.
Then the Gossip Girl star generously tagged Jennifer’s business Sophie & Lili in her post for good measure.
Get the look
As you can see, the illustration perfectly captures this relatable family in rosy-cheeked style.
We’re fairly sure that this once low-profile illustrator will soon have her commission calendar chock-a-block-full for the foreseeable future, thanks to the perfect combo of talent and Blake Lively!
Jennifer shared her excitement on social media as interest in her work began to soar:
“It’s nuts!! Lots of requests and orders for next year. Over 16k followers. We just love her! She’s a good one to have shared a portrait,” she wrote of the Lively-Reynolds effect on her Facebook page.
Jennifer’s personalised custom portraits are priced at an affordable $80US, so you can snap your own Blake-loves-Ryan inspired illustration up for under a hundred bucks if you get in quick!
