Neiman Marcus Invite / July 10th, 2009

Very quick commission for Neiman Marcus in the form of an invite.
I was called up late in the day from the U.S. with a request to make up an invite for an event. The work would have to be in the next day which sounded highly unlikely to me.
The job only became viable once I learned that the invite was to highlight the point that a free gift was available to all that attend in the form of a bangle. The person in the illustration only had to be a silhouette and the only real detail was the bangle itself.
The resultant illustration turned out pretty unusual for me and to be honest, I’m not 100% sure what I think about the painting. The clients were pleased with the work though which I guess is more relevant.
