Westfield Portrait Booth

Hard at work!

Last weekend I was at Westfield Whitford City drawing portraits for the Autumn Winter fashion launch. There were activities set up all over the shopping centre, with free popsicles, games, manicures and style advice. 

My area was set up like a photo booth where I would draw quick stylized portraits. The client approached me with the idea of the portrait booth based on Tobias Gutmann's Face-O-Mat concept. I didn't know if I would be busy or not, but the illustration booth was super popular with people that day! It was so nice to see the reactions of people when seeing their portrait, for most people it was the only portrait they had ever had.

Inside the booth where all the magic happened
Inside the booth there were interactive buttons where you could choose if you wanted a b&w or colour portrait, plus other options. My favourite portraits were the family ones :)

All in all, I had a ball drawing the portraits! I don't think I've ever looked into so many strangers' eyes before, and for a digital vector fiend like me it was a nice change to work in an impromptu setting where there is no undo button!
