For the past number of years now, I've been illustrating a Christmas card for the interior design firm my sister designs for, (that's her in the centre with the red hair). I've never posted any of them online, so I thought I would this year.
They're always looking for something fun, in the form of portraits of everyone in the office. It may not be my usual work, but it's always interesting to come up with something new each year. Past portraits have included the designers decorating a Christmas tree, everyone made to look like dolls hanging in stockings on a mantle, etc. It's nice to know that clients are looking for a little humour in their holiday card designs, (because it makes things a little more fun for me too).
I'm entering another very busy week of painting, so I thought I'd do a quick update before I disappear again.
Above is an illustration I did a couple of weeks ago for The New York Times Magazine. It's a portrait of chef Julie Sahni to accompany an article entitled, New York Dals. (There are some fantastic looking recipes included that I'm looking forward to trying).
I've been working on a number of portraits lately, and I'll be posting more up soon; I can't wait to share them! They've been so much fun to do!
