Julian Wadden Estate Agents Sketches (Didsbury)

I put together some sketches together of the whole building and row of that section of the high-street, however the client wanted the office to have more of a straight on perspective rather than at an angle. The client also mentioned that they wanted a a less ‘sketchy’ feel. They wanted the final image to be far more detailed and to show more of the office interior to be on display, rather than the whole row of businesses.

Julian Wadden Estate Agents (Didsbury)

Julian Wadden Estate Agents have recently opened a new office premises in Didsbury Village. I was asked to create an Artist Impression of the new office with a description of the proposed layout. When I first visited the shop front it was in a white washed state, so it was quite difficult to envision the layout and depth. Here are the reference photos I used and the sketch I put together.

Promotional Postcards

I had some promotional postcards printed by the fantastic people at Hire An Illustrator (www.hireanillustrator.com). I can’t recommend them highly enough, they have been nothing but helpful and easy to deal with, thanks Darren and Jane! I studied with Georgie Fearns at LJMU and her work is on the postcard in the bottom right hand corner, her work can be found at www.georgiefearnsillustration.co.uk   Her work is fantastic, and she has worked for some fantastic clients, check out her site!

New Idea

Shortly I will be starting Illustrations for a limited edition run of iconic / cult films!

The pieces will all take inspiration from Caspar David Friedrich’s 19th Century Masterpiece ‘The Wanderer above the Sea of Fog,’ which is one of my favourites below! All the illustrations will have the third person viewpoint.

Below is a list of a few of my considerations but please feel free to list any recommendations -

Back to the Future, Goonies, Terminator Films, Die Hard, Shawshank Redemption, The Dark Knight, Fight Club, Pulp Fiction, Indiana Jones, Shawn of the Dead, Ghostbusters, Reservoir Dogs, Kill Bill, Django, Goodfellas, Momento, Jurassic Park, Inception, Jaws, The Departed, Independence Day, Rocky, Lock stock / Snatch, Aliens, The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, The Big Labowski, Donnie Darko, The Shining, Predator, Coen Brother Films, any Alfred Hitchcock Films, ET, Raging bull & Drive

Bull Sketch…

My Sketch I did of the Bull picture, I actually prefer this to the finished poster. I tapered all the lines so it had a swooping “Al Hirschfeld” look about it.

Working from a Thumbnail Picture…

I was kindly asked by a friend to produce a portrait for a Birthday present. I only had one high contrast camera photo as reference  so much of it was guess work and making things up. I spent hours drawing and re-drawing the eyes as this was the most dominant part of the image I was given. I made up the hair and added a variety of colours.
