Portrait of Danielle for ‘The State of Us’ Pop up exhibition
Posted 4 months ago and submitted by Nicola Colton | Share link: http://illo.cc/69626

I recently illustrated a portrait of a designer called Danielle for a pop up exhibition in Dublin called ‘The State of Us’. 90 of Ireland’s illustrators, designers and painters made portraits of each other for this unique exhibition. I was given the following description from my sitter along with some reference photos. We had never met before and it was a great starting point for my piece.

“There is a designer called D,
Who loves oodles of doodles you see.
With a glass of red wine
She draws all of the time.
And she nearly can stay in the lines.”
