I want an illustrative poster of my dog Oscar, surrounded by plants and other objects (listed below) drawn in the style of the artist John Dyer Baizley.
OSCAR THE DOG
Here is a link to our dog Oscars instagram page so that you know what he looks like:
(feel free to 'like' him on instagram, he is very cute :D )
Could Oscar have a white 'saint like' circle behind his head as depicted in renaissance paintings and also featured in most of John Dyer Baizleys pictures? It helps make the head stand out and have more contrast against all of the other colours and details in the image.
THE STYLE OF ART
Same style as artist John Dyer Baizley
I have attached some files depicting my personal favourite artworks he has done. He uses a style similar to 19th-century Art Nouveau lithographic artist Alphonse Mucha.
IMAGES TO INCLUDE IN ARTWORK
OSCAR: Main feature is Oscar the dog (of course!). Please try to make the drawing look as much like him as possible. I have saved a few of my favourite Oscar photos in the brief and also included a link to his instagram account to give you as many photos of him as possible to work from.
PLANTS: Plants plants plants. We love plants! Intricately detailed vines and plant forms to be featured in the image please. Some plants we have in our house are : Ficus, all sorts of cactus, mother in laws tongue, palm, various ivy and hanging vines.
OTHER ITEMS: Other items that to be hidden / intertwined in leaves of plants in image include: books, a lobster, coffee cup and saucer, mushrooms, whisky, eggs (I love eggs!), guitar pick, headphones, audio cables, ranunculus flowers, small globe of the world (map), small hand held gardening spade, vinyl records, a bee (or two!).
WORDS: Could our names be very discreetly hidden in small lettering somewhere in the image: Chris, Kylie and Oscar
It would be great if the picture matched to colours already in the room where it will be hung. The 2 other pictures in the room are:
1. The Red Cosmonaut by Jeremy Geddes: http://www.jeremygeddesart.com/popups/02.html
2. The Chinese Girl (also known as The Green Lady) by Vladimir Tretchikoff : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chinese_Girl
So if some similar colours could be used that would be great (reds, blues/greens, yellows, brown natural tones).
SIZE OF POSTER
70cm High x 50cm wide
I look forward to seeing what creative images you come up with! I will be giving constant feedback so please feel free to ask me any questions and I will endeavour to respond quickly.
