Hi! I'm Sadie Solomon and I run the shop EmmieBean here in sunny Berkeley, California. I would love to work with you and illustrate your favorite photo! Take a look through the site to see how the process works, check out other customers' illustrations, and purchase your very own.

I also love meeting my customers face-to-face and hearing the unique and funny stories behind your photographs. I sell at various handmade marketplaces around the country - and often give special fair discounts to my customers who purchase in person! Check out my Instagram for dates and locations.

EmmieBean was established in 2009.  It has been featured in The Los Angeles Times, Apartment Therapy, MSNBC's TODAY, Renegade Craft Fair, Daily Candy, Pure Wow, Decor8, PopSugar, The Etsy Blog, Forge, Bedford + Bowery, UNIQUE LA, Santa Barbara Wedding Style, and various other websites and blogs.
