Client: Famous Couture
Project: Character IllustrationProject specifics:
Client location: UK
I was tasked with creating something contemporary, urban and very much in line with the world of vinyl toys (kid robot etc), but only in this instance, it had to be tied in with the company name Famous Couture, coming from the saying 'Making Jesus Christ Famous'. A tough but fun brief! This was to be the brand of a new t-shirt designer.
Well, it could only be a caricature of Jesus really, as that's what the brand was about, so it was time to create a contemporary visualisation of the man himself. Quite a challenge! Needless to say after numerous sketches I came upon this idea, which was warmly welcomed and really embodies the brief. A great fun little illustration job.
The guys at Hammer & Chisel were referred to me from another great customer of mine and when I heard the brief, I was chomping at the bit!
Happy viking...angry viking...grrrrr. This was one of the many personal illustrations that I created back when I was managing at Lightmaker and was in dire need of getting back to my sketchpad. He hee, it was probably a reflection of how I felt at the time ;)
