In April 2013, The Untapped Source team contacted me, after spotlighting my artwork on their website, with reference to doing a commission for their redevelopment of their own website. The proposal was to create a series of animal portraits. These would reflect qualities of the individuals and also show the individual in their work place.
After one month of working away at the pieces (with some strong support from the guys at Untapped). the four portraits were completed. You can see the whole project process and time lapse renderings on the Behance site, here!
1 creative person, slightly matured
2 tablespoons aptitude
1 piece of aesthetic flavouring
6lbs hard work and sweat
4 ideas more than most
salt of the earth to taste
Take a creative person and stir in some aptitude, thoroughly from the start. In time, mix in the aesthetic flavouring with the most appropriate tool at hand, and then, fold into the mix as much of the hard work and sweat that the mix can take. Sprinkle in the ideas; the more the better. And finally, as all is cooking, a pinch of ‘salt of the earth’ to give it the necessary character. Leave to cook over time and serve when required. Tasty treat in a tasteless world.
