It’s no hidden secret how the world envies youth, the captivating and intensely creative mind of a child and it’s drawings are constantly awed over by the masses. Dave Devries has brought to life children’s drawings by faithfully recreating them as realistically as possible, yet sticking to the original structure of the child’s drawing in a 48 page book. The creative and inspiring book comes complete with his 7 year process of this beautiful project, interviews and of course the original children’s drawings on one page and his masterful creation on the next. Dave Devries is the reason protective plastic sleeves and covers were made for comic books, his spectacular Marvel and DC comic book illustrations leave the most humble of comic book nerds feverishly drooling over his works.
With much regret this amazing blog was abandoned years ago due to PURE laziness! I plan to try and turn this around, hopefully with the help of Frankie Biscuit and bring back the incoherant babbling of some kooky kids behind a screen! Much has changed career wise for the both of us since 2009 and in due time we shall fill you all in! So i’ve kept myself busy as a makeup artist and have been grateful to be apart of some amazing projects, once in a while I manage to squeeze through a few drawings in my spare time!
Alrighty kiddies it hasn’t been long but I am back with another piece of published work! Excited? ME TOO!!
Wear HQ has done a wonderful feature on the beautiful and amazing Eva Rose Lane, we worked together a month back and collaborated ideas to bring forth creative and colourful images for your eyes to behold!
I can’t really say much more other than the blog is a pretty cool one and go check it out for yourself. It’s the second feature on the main page, all 3 images were shot by the wonderful Tracer Ital and makeup of course by moi!
Before the day is up I thought I’d post something worth while since everyone seems to have neglected this site. We apologise once again for this but everyone has been dead set in their busy schedules and hasn’t had time to post. HOWEVER, in the exciting world of the fashion industry I’ve finally had my first tiny break through and put my foot through the door thanks to my amazing amazing makeup teacher Becky Mcgahern.
Some months back I assisted on a very exciting shoot in South London’s infamous lavender field. The shoot was called ‘colourful coats’ and it has hit the stands of London today and only today unfortunately! However for all you international kids I’m proud to present my very first accomplishment to you all! I was published in ‘The mail on Sunday‘ The Daily Mail for the rest of the week lol, and inside that is YOU magazine proudly presents the ‘colourful coats’ shoot w in a FIVE PAGE SPREAD! I’ve been counting down the days waiting anxiously for today and it’s finally here.
