For three days I was set up at the Canton Rd. store doing quick 5 minute live portraits for guests of the event. How can you top a temporary studio inside Lane Crawford? Surrounded by a bucket of drawing utensils, glamorous people, the latest collections, amazing soundtrack and an endless stream of sparkling water (gelato and bubbly too!), I felt spoiled!
The theme of the illustration was 'Front Row' the idea being that the guest would be sketched sitting next to some of the fashion greats, Grace Coddington, Anna Wintour, Karl Lagerfeld, his little kitty Choupette and Anna Della Russo. I also wanted to feature an Asian star so who better than Fan Bing Bing? Who is known for her otherworldly beauty and out of this world fashion choices.

Japanese Sakura Gelly Roll pen I just got while browsing art supplies stores in Guangzhou a few weeks ago.
I even got to meet some really cool people like Rajo Laurel, a Filipano fashion designer and he had a fabulous fan that made a perfect illustration prop. And Soleil Ignacio, a fashion illustrator in Manila, we've been following each other for a while on Instagram and it was so cool to finally meet her in person. She even gave me a pack of her gorgeous prints, I can't wait to put these beauties up.
