The third of my illustrations for Holly Brown was based on the idea of a fantastical way to make coffee. Titled ‘The Fantastical Coffee Machine’ – mixed media.
The fourth in the series I titled ‘Hula Coffee’ – mixed media. I was inspired by the logo of Holly Brown for this one.
These were so much fun to make and even better to see on the walls of Holly Brown. Let me know what you think of them.
Id like to make the next post about some of the wonderful people I got to work with on this project. Stay tuned and thanks for stopping by!
This is the first illustration I was commissioned to create for the walls of Holly Brown. She is titled ‘Holly Brown – Lady Gelato’ – mixed media. At the opening she came to life – thanks to Cathy Cheng for her excellent make up and hair styling and Jess Davies for her modeling. Quite a close likeness I think!
My second illustration is called ‘The First Dance’ – mixed media. Inspired by the coffee and gelato characters, the real-life versions walked the streets on opening day promoting Holly Brown, accompanied by Evan Davies on guitar who sang the Holly Brown theme song (more on that later). Thanks Ron and Jess!

Coffee and Gelato started to flow and Holly Brown was open for business! – check it out – 22 Stanley st, Central, Hong Kong, Open from 8am – 11pm.
Just a quick update to show the installation of the images we created with Coffee and Gelato themes for the walls of Holly Brown. Digital Force here in Hong Kong did an awesome job printing and installing them! Thanks Paul and the team! Tomorrow is the grand opening.. not long now till Holly Brown becomes your local!
So the first week of working here in Hong Kong has been very busy! The aim was to create stock imagery for the cafe Holly Brown.
We started with photographing some colourful looking cup cakes..
followed by a very HOT day shooting in the Tai Po Water front gardens with six very cute children and melting gelato – not to mention dozens of hungry mosquitos!
Next more shots of delicious gelato in waffle cups for the menu…
then coffee, roasted and created by the experts…
We then worked all of this imagery into grids for the walls of the cafe which I will show you images of once they have been installed. The beauty of working in a cafe that specialises in coffee and gelato is that you get to sample both as often as you like – SO YUMMY! The illustrations I created are at the framers as we speak so Ill post them once they have been installed. The opening is set for the 9th July 2010. So If you are near Stanley St, Central, Hong kong this friday do come on by and enjoy the grand opening!
