About This Project

Actor and singer, Reynardt Hugo saw my vector art and requested for me to create this portrait of him. I met him through my friend, who is Reynardt’s uncle. Reynardt is an amazing person, successful and quite energetic. You’ll see him in the South African and Afrikaans soap, Binnelanders; and in the South African band, ADAM, where he’s the lead singer.


I created three sets of this carefully crafted portrait, where I swapped around the colours. The idea was to print all three and frame them next to each other.

I chose to use as little detail as possible, and use thicker lines than usual to create a simplistic and modern illustration. My focus was mainly on the use of colours and light. I contrasted the subject with an almost solid background.


I chose to use pink for his shirt in this image, because it does go well with the blues and yellow.
