An exciting live illustration event for Walter and Herbert
In June 2016 I was asked to do a really exciting live illustration event for iconic London based eye-wear company Walter and Herbert. I was also asked to do some Fashion Illustrations for Walter and Herbert to promote the live illustration event. Established in 1946, Walter and Herbert offer really stylish glasses and sunglasses that have a really quirky vintage look to them. All of their eye-wear is made in England and their flag ship store is on Monmouth Street in Seven Dials, London. Seven Dials is a really great quaint shopping district that connects Soho to Covent Garden and is well worth exploring. That weekend in Seven Dials, the Style Saturday event was happening. Style Saturday is a fantastic event where they close off all of the Streets around Seven Dials to traffic, and they have live music, free giveaways and great food. Walter and Herbert asked me to illustrate free portraits for their customers, outside their store.

If you want to check out the blog post about the Style Saturday event, you can see it on my other blog post, Live Illustration for Walter and Herbert. I thought I would share with you on this post the Fashion Illustrations for Walter and Herbert to use on their social media channels. Walter and Herbert also used these illustrations to display in their shop and window, and to put on their A frame to promote the event on the day. We also used some propped versions of the illustrations to advertise the event on social media before the day. The illustrations were done in watercolour primarily. I did a mix of men’s and women’s illustrations, including both glasses and sunglasses. Have a look at the pics and see what you think !
