The Portrait of Mr. Octave by Nip Rogers

Mr.OctavesPortraitDetailLR

Mr. Octave came to me the day after with a pile of bananas he had collected for me from his property, as a gift in return. With the little English words he could think of, he told me how much his wife and kids loved the portrait I did. I spent the next 4 days enjoying those bananas with a very full stomach. When someone gives back from the heart like that.. One of the perks of being an artist. Unfortunately I went through those deliciously organic bananas (he planted and harvested them himself) so fast I didn’t have a chance to take a photo of them. But try to image a bunch of bananas given to you as a precious gift. They tasted better than any you could find at any market.

I was recently asked by Woman’s Weekly magazine to illustrate their latest five part serial, an historical romance set in both modern times and the era of King Charles II. I had great fun researching and drawing from this period of history – especially the furniture, dresses and hairstyles!

When In Seychelles by Nip Rogers

Illustrating, painting, exploring new sunny colors, new love, a new life, making friends, meeting people and learning their ways, a family portrait commission, landing a t-shirt design deal with a local studio and another one with a local distillery; this is my exhale, here’s the best of what came out of my days in Seychelles (follow that link to go to the Seychelles chapter on my website).
