Line Drawing Crabtree and Evelyn
Crabtree and Evelyn, contacted my London illustration agency Central Illustration. The commission was to illustrate 6 individual teacup drawings and famous London Landmarks. The locations 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. 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 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. I am a fan of tea drinking and it was a pleasure to read about the many different types of teas and sweet accompaniments you can enjoy with your cup of tea.
