As I mentioned in my previous post, a few weeks ago now, I had the pleasure of doing some live illustrating at an UGG event. I haven’t done live illustrating at an event like this before, so I am so pleased to have had the opportunity to do so, and even more pleased that it went so well and lots of people left very happy with a little illustration in hand! It was basically a fairly swanky private event for various staff members, and I was there to do a very quick illustration of anyone that wanted one of themselves. Given that they all work in fashion, it made my job very easy as the majority of people got really into it and were great at pulling, and holding, poses for me! Unfortunately I don’t have great photos of the illustrations I did of people as 1. it was non stop and people were soon lining up to have there illustration done, so there was no time to take photos in between! and 2. It was like a bar/ club scene so the light was not great for photo taking – on my phone anyway! So in this post I have included a few warm up sketches I did prior to the event and at the event whilst waiting for people to arrive. So you can get an idea of what a live/quick illustration of mine looks like. As well as the few photos that did turn out ok from the night.
Thanks again for having me UGG!
I also used this as a good excuse to buy some new materials to work with! So I got a whole bunch of pro -markers and some lovely ‘brush pens’ which are probably the closest thing to creating a painted feel without the mess of water and brushes etc which is much more convenient when doing something like this. And they have two ends one is more like a brush tip and the other is thiner for finer lines. I actually got a couple different brands…not sure which I prefer yet. And the range of colours available is amazing, might work up to eventually having them all!
