May 29, 2017 Â The Communications StoreÂ London commissioned Maya Beus to illustrate a lively evening scene at the new Gordon Ramsay RestaurantsÂ Union Street Cafe Olive Grove pop-up in London. Maya illustrated an artist impression that could be used for pre-event marketing and promotion. Thank you to the @thecommsstore team.Â This illustration shows Maya’s skill in creating a busy scene with many people doing different things and on different angles and making it all look natural – Â Maya had no photographic reference to work from for this piece which is not easy to do. A credit to Maya.
