Sunflowerman Sketchbook: Ovadia & Sons 2013

Before traveling Europe, before I developed a collection of images for Fab, before the Watches Project there was Ovadia & Sons.

Take a look at these sketches from the Sunflowerman Sketchbook (pgs 26, 27, 28. get your free copy by signing up at the bottom of the post). Somehow these three pages made it into this sketchbook when the other billion sketches ended up elsewhere.

They are the early development stages for the collection. The final illustrations did not stray much from these early sketches.

Ovadia & Sons was the first big (big in my eyes) project that I had the opportunity to work on.

They had recently been named GQ's best new menswear designers and have steadily been on the rise ever since. I cannot tell you how excited I was.

It has been just over a year since I completed my work with O&A and I look back with judging eyes. The working process was a bit of a pain. Part of that may have been due to my lack of experience working with actual, real-life clients.

In the end, these illustrations are representative of my most well received work and the work which embarrasses me the most to have out in the world. But they say that will happen when you look back.

The past holds markers of progress. Ovadia & Sons was pivotal marker for me. It taught me how to work with clients. What type of work I want to do in the world. How to trust myself and how to let my illustrations live on their own.
