Crabtree and Evelyn Cups and Saucers
Crabtree and Evelyn, contacted my London illustration agency, Central Illustration, looking to commission me to create 6 individual teacup drawings and famous London Landmarks, The Gherkin, Tower Bridge and Big Ben for a special booklet all about tea drinking. The tea illustrations were illustrated from photos of China teacups supplied by Crabtree and Evelyn. The illustrations had to be drawn with enough detail; so that once the drawings were reduced down in size they still retained the drawing detail.
The China teacups were had beautiful detail to them, intricate floral patterns with detailed birds. The Rotring Pens I use to draw with were perfect for the job, to capture the little details on the teacups. The Client was very happy with the finished illustrations, I also received several copies of the little tea booklet which was fascinating, being a fan of tea drinking myself, to read about the many different types of teas and sweet accompaniments you can enjoy with your cup of tea.
