At the end of August, I received an email from DECIEM asking if I would like to work with them on their Edinburgh store launch event. You bet I would!
This request rolled in when my schedule was just starting to move from holiday mode to super crazy busy mode. I just couldn’t turn it down.
This is now the week after and I can breathe again. What a huge learning curve. I was to create an artwork to be made into prints for Press/Influencer/VIP Customer goodie bags. There was some back and forth sketch action however after take 3, it was all approved and ready to be made into prints. They wanted to capture the city and the quirky fun of the company, thus the castle and animals. The dog, Dexter, actually belongs to one of the London employees.
I was entertainment for the three events, drawing and painting an original piece similar to the print. After meeting the DECIEM crew from Edinburgh and London, I can confirm that they are lovely people. The branding on their products is pretty slick. I also like the lack of parabens and nasties in their products.
So that’s a wrap then. Better get on with next commission.
