Painting the Team

NYSketches painted an event mural for the team for the Pepsi/Lipton Partnership at their holiday party at Gold Bar NYC earlier this year.  I painted about 70 faces, set in their tea plantation in Africa.  Here is the final painting, which will hang in the company’s meeting room.

…and here are some photos along the way:

Its officially holiday time!  NYSketches joined in on holiday cheer Tues. night at a law firm’s tree lighting ceremony party at Rockefeller center.  The party included caricatures drawn on custom pre-printed paper with an illustrated scene of the Rockefeller tree lighting, a magician for the kids, facepainting, and lots of yummy treats.  Here are pics of the sketches and facepainting:

Passover Seder Event Mural

I worked on an event mural at a Passover Seder along with NYSketches artist, Elizabeth Hutchinson.  The client provided us with photos of 10 of their guests, and photos of past seders at their house so that I could get an idea of the event decor.  I painted the background and 10 faces before the party.  At the dinner party, Elizabeth painted the additional 15 faces, and guest really enjoyed seeing themselves on canvas!  After the party I completed the painting with final touches.  Here it is:

Event Mural at Holiday Party

In August, we did an event mural for SLGreen Realty Corp. at their holiday-in-summer party.  The party was held at the Aspen Restaurant in NYC.  The mural was 6 x 4 ft, and I painted much of the mural before hand from photos of the guests at the event.  I incorporated the theme of the event into the mural in which all the guests were skiing down a mountain in Aspen.  Here are some photos of the mural in progress:
