My Aunt wanted something special for my Uncle’s Birthday, He’s been competing in a lot of triathlons so she tasked me with designing a cartoon of him riding a bike or swimming. I gave her three options of different artistic directions ranging from serious to silly. She messaged back with the best reference photo of him on his bike. When asked what should be the background she replied that he one day wants to own a condo on Ft. Meyers Beach in Florida. So I found and drew an actual photo of exactly that. For added symbolism I replaced the triathlon number with the logo of their Company. She had the final design printed out on a cake.
