Recently I was commissioned to illustrate 54 portraits of musical icons. It was one huge task! As if the workload itself wasn’t daunting enough, I had a relatively tight deadline, which to fulfill, meant I had to complete at least 1 portrait every 2 days (including working weekends, Christmas day, New years etc)
Anyway, I did it. *wipes sweat from brow and downs tall glass of beer in single gulp. Here’s a sneak peek at who I drew.
I’m super excited to see what my collaborators, Laurence King Publishing make with these, but for now, I’m heading straight back to the drawing table, because I have to design product packaging for these!
[Caption: A realistic digital painting of Michael Jackson. Portrait is from the hip up. Michael is wearing a vivid red uniform shirt with black leather cuffs and black uniform slacks with black leather belts and three silver police badges. His hair is curly and black. The background is a gradient of peach to purple with an overlay of stripes.]
