Working For Nice Idea / January 29th, 2009

I was commissioned by Nice Idea to create portraits of 10 leading Australian business people for a Caliburn Annual Review.
The design agency had seen my previous portraits for Business Voice Magazine and wanted something similar, they also like the portrait I’d done of Elton John and were (effectively) after the edges of each vignette to be finished off in a slightly different way which was something I hadn’t consciously considered before. The reference they provided was great and the approval process went relatively smoothly, as did the painting. There wasn’t a great deal of time for each illustration but it was offset by being able to paint the portraits on a small scale (approximately 9cm square).
It was a pleasure to work with everyone at the team and I look forward to seeing the finished review.
