This was a commission I had come through a couple weeks ago from the UK. I was working with the lovely team at the Historic Royal Palaces office designing a pamphlet for their kids summer program.
I had a lot of fun on these historic portraits. The trick seemed to be finding a good balance between an amusing approach to the character and not falling into parody. I'd love to spend some more time on something like this and really get stuck into the historical reference and detail.
And here it is! Hope the kids like it and the summer program goes well.
