Miss Led Fashion Faces 2 Day Workshop Barcelona

I’m thrilled to be travelling to Spain again this year to run another 2 day workshop, this time Barcelona.

From beginners to intermediate all are welcome.
I’ll be live drawing and painting various techniques including drawing hair and fool proof rules of creating the perfect portrait. Also in the sessions I’ll be giving one-to-one tuition and feedback.
Learn, explore and play. Pick my brains about the industry, projects, techniques and more. It’s going to be a smasher. The next best thing to reach Barcelona since Sonar ;)

Miss Led Illustration for T3 Magazine

I’ve now just completed my 3rd portrait as contributor to the new look T3 Magazine.  Each month I’m creating a portrait of someone dominating the headlines. So far each have been male, which has been a great challenge, especially as I’m working purely digital.  Working on my Cintique and IntuosPro I’m learning a lot about digital marks, brushes and canny layering. Here’s the lovely Lewis Hamilton who was a dream to draw. Wait till you see who I had to create next…. !

Miss Led Paperdolls for H&M and NY Magazine

This month I worked with NY Magazine The Cut, on a really fun project producing four paper dolls for the new Summer looks available at H&M.  With a very quick turnaround the project was pretty full power, but I’m happy with the results.  You can see the full campaign here: Essential Summer Looks

Miss Led Watercolour fashion illustrations for Head & Shoulders Limited Edition Bottles

So great to finally see my Head and Shoulders ladies launched and getting some lovely press.  I was commissioned by Ketchum last Summer through my wonderful agents Illustration to create five characters that reflected the benefits of each of the limited edition shampoos. The brief requested a fashion styled group of ladies that would appeal to 18-25 year olds. It was also an opportunity to work on a group of diverse characters, poses and clothing that illustrated different styles and attitudes of young ladies, like my own pristine girl band.

From Offset Festival in Dublin, following a week later with my delivering an intensive 3 day course in Seville, live painting for a lavish event in the beautiful city of Rome to a trip to South Wales to meet my youngest group of journalists in Merthyr.

The venue and dates are set, I’ll be running two workshops on the weekend of July 11-12th in a 17th Century palace in Barcelona. One of my most favourite of cities.  There will be limited places, so keep a look out for flyers and further details coming really soon! And hopefully see you there

Miss Led European Tour: Live Event Portraiture Rome

My latest European venture took place in the stunningly beautiful city of Rome this April, hot off the back of running a course in Seville.  I was commissioned privately to create super sized fashion styled portraits for a very special 18th birthday party hosted at the Salone delle Fontane.  With over 570 guests and the biggest cake imaginable, the event was pretty spectacular.

I’m hoping to have further imagery soon, as it all sped by so fast. But here’s a few pictures from the evening.  My large drawing panel draped in Fabriano paper for the evening, a really quick phone shot of my early favourite portrait and the beautifully impressive event venue.
