This was such a fun project to work on. The one's who are following me on Instagram already had a sneak peek of this project. So! A few weeks ago I was approached by H+K Strategies (Beauty + Grooming) to illustrate a fun project for Silvikrin (Wella). First of all, I had to redraw this amazing vintage ad of Silvikrin (love vintage ads!). You can see the result above.
After that, it was time to draw 15 portraits of 15 beauty editors from 15 magazines (inlcuding RED Magazine, Closer, HEAT Magazine and many more).
This was a very exciting thing to do, because it had to match with the vintage ad. At first I thought this would be a tricky one, but after I finished the first one, I was really pleased with how it turned out and I had a really fun time illustrating these portraits.
Here are 3 out of the 15 portraits. The reactions we got are truly A-MA-ZING! And I couldn't be more happy with the result.

We really got amazing feedback on all portraits. As it are so many portraits, I choose to post a few of them. Maybe I will post all the portraits in a small size on my blog later this week.
Also I made three green pencil sketches (this will be used for press releases).
These looks are based upon three iconic Silvikrin looks.
The Beehive, The Bouncy Bob, The Flick & Curl.
Many thanks for this lovely project H+K Strategies! I really enjoyed it!
