During London Fashion Week, I was in-store at the newly opened Walter and Herbert eyewear store in Seven Dials, Covent Garden. To celebrate the launch of their new sunglasses collection, I was invited to draw portraits of people trying on their favourite sunglasses.
And, in true London Fashion Week style, I had an eclectic mix of stylish and flamboyant people coming along 💕
Thanks for having me Walter & Herbert, you were a great team to work with!
I was in-store at Selfridges for two days drawing portraits. It was a challenge, since I had to work using fabric pens - meaning that I had to change my style a little to meet the brief. Plus, fabric pens are pretty dry and don't glide very easily over canvas. Not my ideal drawing tool, but a really ingenious use of live drawing.
Here's some pics by the lovely Rob Cartwright:
Last month I was contacted by Links of London to create some inky portraits for their #linksoflondontime dinner; a luxurious dining event at The National Portrait Gallery to celebrate Links' latest watch collection.
I was asked to draw portraits for 13 attendees, which would be used on their table settings. I also hand lettered their names. A lovely idea. Here's a few of my favourites (you'll notice that there's some men in there too. See! I don't just draw ladies.)
Some of the guests were pretty pleased with their portraits and shared them on Instagram. It was fun to see them being posted throughout the evening, I felt like I was there! Thanks to everyone for the lovely pictures.

I hope you love them. You can see the whole set of portraits here
