So yesterday I was at the Jumble and Pearls Valantines Fayre at the Book Club.
As well as selling cards and prints and bits and pieces I did some live portraits and I thought you might like to see them so here they are.
Every portrait event I do is different and like any fair or market there's always an element of unpredictability. Last time I did a vintage event almost everyone wanted watercolour, and this time everyone opted for a pen portrait - these are quicker and cheaper so it may tell you something about the denizens of Shoreditch over those of Islington. Live drawing is also always bringing me new surprises and experiences - at this fayre I drew 6 beautiful french girls at once - a record - and was also asked to do a portrait of a bicycle.
This is the lovely and talented Q of Maiden Found - you should def. check out her hats.
A portrait of a bicycle - a BRAKE bicycle to be specific
I didn't even notice the great expression Rachel of BRAKE bikes is pulling in the background here - makes the picture all kinds of awesome on top of les belle dames
Also guys - do not be forgetting to order your Valentines cards and zines from the shop by the end of the day on Monday - the cutest cards you'll see anywhere with a sting in their tale. And the new zine compilation with the best of the last 2 years designs.
