The Birthday of the Infanta
Posted 4 years ago and submitted by Vicky Scott | Share link:


I’ve created a new piece inspired by my favourite Oscar Wilde story, the Birthday of the Infanta and the illustrations of Aubrey Beardsley who collaborated with Wilde on several occasions. Wilde tells a tale about a spoilt Princess, the Infanta, and her birthday celebrations, although it’s his detailed descriptions of all the beautiful plants and animals which are the elements of the story I really wanted to get across. There are peacocks, pomegranates, lizards, lemons and many more, mostly roaming within her ornate gown in my illustration. I’m selling her as a print too.

Vicky is friendly and creative, and her style is bright, fun and very eye-catching. Working in stages from rough concept to finished art, she was open to feedback and willing to accommodate amends and a couple of extras along the way. It was an absolute pleasure working with her and hope I get the opportunity again in the near future.
