Ricky and David : Illustration

So I’ve been doing a bit more painting and I’ve two pieces to post on today. One is another of my Fall 2015 illustrations, the other is a very stylish Ralph Lauren advertisment that I could only think about painting once I’d seen. So, here we go…

David Koma

First off we have one of my favourite pieces from David Koma’s London show, I wasn’t sure how it would translate to an illustration as it’s quite minimal and dark, but it worked okay. There’s a  few flaws in the shadows and highlights, but I like the general 60’s vibe. I seem to be focusing on that decade with my illustrations, even though the shows themselves were undoubtedly all about the 70’s…

‘Ricky’

Next we have a very stylish advertisement from Ralph Lauren for his ‘Ricky’ sunglasses, hence the name. Don’t you just wish you could look this elegant and pulled together all the time! Anyway, I really enjoyed this one, there is something about large expanses of black that bring out the other features really nicely. ‘Ricky’ is available as prints in A4/8×10″ and also A5/ 5X7″ at the shop

Angela Moultons Beautiful Birds…

Angela Moulton’s Beautiful Birds

Angela Moulton’s beautiful little paintings of birds are another one of the things I can thank Etsy for. With Spring showing its face a little more every day and the birds playing in the trees Angela’s colourful, personable pictures seem entirely apt. These pictures of hers come from her ‘Painting a Day’ series. There are a handful here, but take a peek at her portfolio and Etsy shop and you will see all the beuaty on offer there. The original artworks land at her Etsy shop not long after completion so you can snap up a little birdie of your own…
