Live Portrait Illustration with Ted Baker & Moore

Last Thursday, I was invited along to Ted Baker & Moore, Ted Baker's experimental shop at Old Spitalfield's Market in London.  The shop is an eclectic mix of "superbly stylish items hand-picked by the man himself" and the home of #NOT, No Ordinary Thursday; which sees a new in-store event happening every Thursday.  Definitely worth watching.

To celebrate the launch of the new #sixstarstyle campaign, I was asked to draw portraits of customers in-store.  Here's some pics of me and my lovely models.

Ted Baker at Selfridges - Live Drawing Event

A couple of weeks ago I was with the fabulous team at Ted Baker.  We were celebrating the launch of their new exclusive range for Selfridges by offering personalised tote bags for customers.

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:
