That is actually a beautiful drawing, and a wonderful idea for a commission.
I particularly like the Marion character and how her features translate so well into the abstraction that the artist uses as his/her style.
The background is also marvelously drawn - and the right shades of sepia hues evoke the look of aged or archivally-treated photos from the first half of the 20th century.
I am unsure about the Polaroid reference, though. Do you just mean that as a generic word for a snapshot? I ask because the white frames of Polaroids pictures - rollfilm, packfilm and integralfilm types - are quite distinct, and of course Edwin Land unveiled Polaroid only in 1947/8. So the reference strikes me as unsuitable on two accounts...
