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.
Don’t ask, I have no idea. He hee, well, I just got a little caught up in some good issues of ImagineFX, one too many fantasy movies and a couple of great new books, needless to say I thought I’d throw a mix of traditional painting with my usual cartoony style...and got this.
This was an awesome day out. I went for a good saunter around Duxford Air Museum (with my good old dad, and yes the subject is aircraft again) with my camera poised ready for a shot.
