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.
Yey, a little more character development. I have some great new work starting soon, so I wanted to take some time to play around with some style development. Don't ask where the idea came from, I was just sat down watching some TV with my sketch pad playing with some lines...and boom, he appeared.
This was a great opportunity that arose late 2008, where I was approached by the publishers of this new creative inspiration book series, the Creative Unity, to appear in their first volume as none other than their featured designer!
