The Vogue Project pg 24-25

pages 24 and 25 (undated! 2008 I think)

This one was when I had had enough of colour and painting but still wanted to do something colourful and painterly (go figure) so I went with my comfortable fall back: Lead pencil!
Adore kate in this campaign, well in anything really. She will always be my favorite. Which leads me to...Did you see my big announcement on my Facebook page?! I'm having an exhibition in two months! Head there now to read about it and see a tiny preview of whats to come.
 And stay tuned this week to see a big blog post about it!

The Vogue Project pages 22 & 23

page 22 and 23 (14/10/08)

The following page to Dolce & Gabbana. Sorry this one is a bit late, crazy deadlines this week! Cant wait to show you guys! But back to this, I think I prefer this weeks one from last weeks one. It's a bit of a challenge painting blurry shaking figures, and also painting men! The last man I painted was this one and the one before is probs from this ad which I had forgotten about!

And for those of you wondering how the project is progressing I have posted a lil update on my Facebook page:)

The Vogue Project pages 20 & 21

page 20 and 21 (08/10/08)

Wow, this one feels like aggggeeesssss ago! And there was a year gap between Chanel and this!
 Dolce & Gabbana's african inspired collection.
This was the first time I had used acrylics since high school/early art school. I remember it being a challenge. I tried so hard not to make it look like a high school art piece. The lettering was done with grease-proof kitchen paper cut out with a scalpel.
It's another 4 page spread so watch out for next Mondays installment!

Hop over to COLOSOUL for a lil interview with me;)

The Vogue Project pages 18 & 19

And another Chanel! You will notice in the next few upcoming posts that the big brands (the ones with mega $$$) can afford 4 page spreads. I keep the same medium over the double and quadruple page spreads too, almost like a brand loyalty. I prefer the second one in this post. And I plan to reenact this scene when I hit Paris this September;)
