Shane and Angie are a talented pair who I’ve known for quite some time. Shane is the lead singer of the band Desmond and the Tutus, and a sterling copywriter and designer. Angie is an accomplished art director and blogger – she is always working on some new exciting project. Together they own and run two eateries; a cake shop called Wolves that also hosts some of South Africa’s finest local musical and artistic talent, as well as an Asian-style brasserie called The Good Luck Club.
I drew from the conventions of Renaissance portraits of patrons of the arts when I was doing this drawing. The portrait below is a painting by Piero della Francesca of the Duke and Duchess of Urbino, who were known for their patronage of the arts.
