1/4 Editorial Illustrations: Colin Firth

A recent editorial illustration I knit up of Colin Firth in a holiday sweater.

He is the first of four portraits I was hired to complete for a magazine. The brief included that they wanted male celebrities in holiday sweaters in my knit painting style. The turn around time was 10 days.

It was such a fun challenge to simplify the sweater designs and to achieve a form a likeness while still being expressive and true to my knit painting style.

This one was Colin Firth in the iconic holiday sweater his character wore in Bridget Jones’ Diary.
