A selection of swimming-related commissions.
Over the last couple of years I have got very much into open water swimming, including swimming right through the English winters outside. And illustrating some of my swims as drawings afterwards, from memory, has kept me and some of my fellow swimmers entertained. This has led to a small series of commissions that I have been asked to draw for people. Here is a selection of them. Unlike the swimming drawings on my Cat of the Day sketchbook blog, these are often based on photographs or a combination of photographs and imagination, but like the drawings of my own swims, many of them still commemorate a moment or a swim, for a particular swimmer.
If you’d like a drawing done for you:
Please email me if you are interested in having a drawing done especially for you and I can discuss costs at no obligation.
Alternatively, if there is a drawing on my website already that you feel is very appropriate to you, but you would like it to be more special, it may also be possible to add some personal details to the drawing at a lesser cost than a full commission. I cannot modify commissions that were done for other people, but of the drawings below, ‘The Race’ and ‘Under the Arches’ were drawings that appeared in my sketchbook blog, in a slightly different form, and were modified, on request, to include details that made the drawings personal. (I added the frieze and the mirror in ‘The Race’ and put a different swimmer in for ‘Under the Arches’)
