Peaky Blinders portrait
Posted 1 year ago and submitted by Eugene Smith | Share link:

During downtime between projects I always try to play around with new techniques and approaches for my illustration. Mostly I see it as an opportunity to experiment and push myself into areas that feel less comfortable for me. This go around I wanted to play around with texture, and decided to satiate my love of Peaky Blinders by creating a portrait of Thomas Shelby – “I don’t pay for suits. My suits are on the house or the house burns down.”

"Eugene Smith is one of my very favorite illustrators, and I've worked with a ton. He has illustrated 8 or 9 books for my company (including several award winners & at least one New York Times bestseller). His illustrations are always packed with imaginative and rewarding details. He brings a million creative ideas to every assignment. He makes terrific use of light and shadow. He never cuts corners. And he has never, ever missed a deadline. We just hired him for a new project and I can't wait to hire him again."
