GUCCI PRE-FALL 2017: “SOUL SCENE” - creative director: Alessandro Michele - art
director: Christopher Simmonds - photography: Glen Luchford - hair: Paul
Hanlon - makeup: Yadim Carranza - models: Nicole Atieno, Elibeidy,
Bakay Diaby & Keiron Berton Caynes plus 25 professional dancers
by the portraiture of Malian artist Malick Sidibé, who photographed
local nightlife and youth culture in his hometown of Bamako, the
campaign explores the freedom of expression found in music and dance.
Set in dancehall and rich, colorful, make-shift studios, the images
capture a group of men and women dancing passionately and posing for
photographs. Referencing the spirit of England’s underground Northern
Soul movement of the 60’s, with its distinctive, athletic dance moves
and exuberant social scene, the images by Glen Luchford are dynamic,
vibrant and spontaneous.” - Gucci

‘Quiet Reflection’ was inspired by the Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden, that I visited on my vacation to Japan. This is probably the most detailed drawing I’ve done, and I am so unbelievably happy with how it turned out. Especially the water! I had a vision in my head for how the water would look, and I left it til last to do and then I was so worried that I would mess it up and ruin the whole picture, but it worked out exactly like I wanted it to!
With this illustration I really wanted to create a tranquil garden oasis, with a fantasy feel to it – somewhere that you would want to escape to and relax away the troubles of your day.
The deer park in Vejle is one of my favorite places in Denmark. It’s so peaceful, with deer hanging about in the dappled light. I’ve tried to capture the tranquil atmosphere in this illustration and I’m really happy with how it’s turned out. This one is mixed media and collage with patterned origami paper that I got on vacation in Japan.
