When I was approached by The European Tour to create another bespoke artwork for their social media pages, I was over the moon.
"What do you need"? I asked. "Can you create an image of some top golfers, but we'd like them in the style of Peaky Blinders?" came the reply?
Now, I've had some strange requests from the Content Team at ET before, so seven golfers dressed-up like Peaky Blinders didn't come as too much of a surprise. "Yup, no problem" I said. "Send me the list of golfers you want to be featured and I'll see what I can do?'
After researching the internet for a few reference images, I had a good idea of what the final image would look like and was soon outlining where each player would fit and what they'd be wearing?
After a couple of days of fiddling, I was pleased with the final image and duly sent it over to the guys at Wentworth to await their feedback. I didn't have to wait very long. After a couple of minutes, my email pinged and the response was short and sweet. 'She's a Beauty!" "We'll use it across our Social Media platforms when the next series begins on TV!"
Well, the Brummie tales of Peaky Blinders was back on our screens last night, and I was pleased to see the image appear on both Instagram and Twitter to some positive responses. 😊
I wonder what the next request will be...?
