A small group of friends and I won a stuffed animal duck on a day out at Dave and Busters. Overwhelmed with pride, we named him and he became part of the family. Thus, our little group became known as "Guardians of Herbert". Our group needed a picture that would showcase us along with our new child.
The portraits were inspired by the design style of the popular children's show "Arthur". As each character in the show are based on animals, each member of the friend group was given an animal inspired by their personality.
