The Briar Grove Barbers.

Character Illustration – Adobe Illustrator and ProCreate.

The Briar Grove Barbers is a traditional yet modern barber shop located in the heart of the West End of Glasgow.  Each of the staff members chooses an animal to represent them, which are then developed into characters.

Each character is created in Adobe Illustrator, then brought into ProCreate for finishing, with extensive cross hatching giving them a textured, vintage look reminiscent of intaglio printing.

The client also requested a group shot composited from the individual poses, which influenced each character’s stance and direction.

Full colour, half saturation and sepia toned versions were provided for both print and digital use.
