Savéol billboard illustrations commission showing on the Paris Métro now.

This is the second commission from French groceries company Savéol that I have worked on. It's been really great fun creating these fun and jaunty figures for them. It's one area that I love to work in- creating brand identity fashion illustrations for specific clients to promote and advertise their product. There are many considerations, with the client usually requesting some of these in the briefing. Eg. the characters here had to be friendly, approachable look whilst having a fashion feel to them with their elongated legs! The girls were to be shown in different locations- shopping, cycling and sitting outside a cafe.

Here are my initial rough pencil sketches which were changed only slightly before transferring into finals- the medium used was black acrylic inks, oriental brushes and letrafilm collage.

Jacqueline illustrates The Arch window for GP Studio for London Fashion Week

Had a fab time a couple of weeks ago drawing directly onto GPStudio's huge arch windows in Southwark, South London. Drawn on March 2nd, I started at 11 am and finalised by 6pm. It was my first time drawing ion that scale and on glass. The post pens were a joy to use, going smoothly onto the window and even 'wet' enough to splash- which is something I love to do! I draw a rough on the outside glass first of all as the final piece would have to be drawn back to front otherwise it would not 'read' well! I think the hardest part was actually writing back to front as i'd featured designers and wanted to 'credit' them. Featured designers included House of Holland, Emporio Armani,Peter Pilot, Mary Katranzou. Click here for GP Studio's page on their Arch Window- they are always looking for new artists!
