Ricardo e Cristiana, Óbidos 2017

So, I am most currently residing in Lisbon (GREAT city, super creative too); and was approached by two very special people to me; to do a commission of mutual friends of ours on their wedding day…

I have of recent created quite a few works centred around weddings – I think the personal nature of commissioning something, and my style lends itself to these special days –  and so was thrilled to do something, especially of two people I know too! I believe those who commissioned it and the the special couple themselves, were all thrilled with the outcome. 😉

Based on a photo from their wedding photography, taken in Óbidos, Portugal. May it bring you many years of joy, and may you have many happy years of matrimony! Enjoy Ricardo e Cristiana!

Illy and Jinx – Wedding Insert, Illustrative Painting

In January, I was approached by these clients to create an illustrative montage, to tell the story of their lives together so far, and of the schedule of their wedding day, there were many components/ ideas/ and a few drinks drunk too, as we came to this composition/ final idea!

The top tells the story of the day, and each place illustrated sit along the river where they would on a map of London, the bottom section shows where they met, where they got engaged, where they did Erasmus or where they were from. The final greenery all over was in keeping with their florist who does amazing things, I can’t wait to have a peak at it on the day!

I thoroughly enjoyed creating this piece as it was so personal, and am thoroughly pleased how it turned out as an image for the invite/ insert! It is definitely something I would love to do again!

Have a great day Illy and Jinx, and all the best for your future together!

Othello!

So I did this private commission before christmas, not my main line of work, but something that is fun and requires some concentration – catching an animal’s/person’s personality is easier said than done… it was in fact a christmas present to a very cool little man I know! I hope you like it Alfie! 😉 here are some photos below for you to see how he came about!

Rua Sao Vicente, Mina Gerais, Brazil

In a recent flurry of work/ private commissions (isn’t it always the way…) I was asked to create this home in Minas Gerais, a particularly poignant home for my client as it was where she grew up. I know the client personally, and knew the sentimental importance of the piece, so despite it being a simple building and a smaller piece, it took some time and thought. I thoroughly enjoyed giving the building it’s character, through my usual use of colour if in somewhat random way!

I was also asked to portray her parents in the piece from photos she supplied me with, which again gave it it’s personal touch – and proved trickier than said, given as resemblance is key on such small figures they required less mad dash brush stroke and  a steadier hand!

Take a look, I believe the client was very pleased ;)!

The Pere Family Illustration…

My latest project – a little different to others was to build a narrative for a French client of their family’s life in london since they moved here 20 years ago or so, they asked that it be done in a similar style to the first ever private commission I had (many thanks Pascal 😉 which was a little tricky at times as my style has developed, but I think I did it proud… take a look, from the Pere family’s cars, homes, hobbies, family memories we have it all. Working from photographs and information given to me by Sylvie, I pieced together firstly composition sketches to lay it out and then got at it! Take a look! Many thanks to the Pere Family, I hope you enjoy it!

Milan, London, New York and Marina Del Ray CA, USA…

I was very pleased to be approached by my Italian client again this time a special commission for his girlfriend, let’s hope she likes it! It was a montage of many places which was fun to piece fluidly together, also the first client commission in my new space – the light was good and I think I captured it well. Think Milan, New York, London and Marina Del Rey, California… all in one…
