Ever since I spent a week of my honeymoon strolling through the picture-perfect streets of Paris, surrounded by the freshest of Spring flowers, I have been aching to do an illustration based on one of the most beautiful cities in the world, incorporating one of the most beautiful fashion houses in the world. Yep, you guessed it. CHANEL.
Who wouldn't be inspired after passing that iconic storefront at 31 Rue Cambon...?
You might also remember the Chanel pop up flower stall that appeared in London's Covent Garden last year. I couldn't think of a more beautiful back drop for the illustration...
I'm hoping to get more of my Paris-inspired illustrations onto paper very soon, but for now I hope you like 'The Flower Cart' and the accompanying progress imagery and holiday happy snaps!
'The Flower Cart' is available to purchase as an A3 giclée print, limited to an edition of 50 only, in my store here:
