Red Locomotive



At Ad Graphics we are known for our versatility when it comes to illustration. Over the years we've been asked to create all kinds of different illustration styles, from realism to cartooning, art deco to technical drawings, marker comps to fashion illustration, using a variety of media. Now that so much can be done on computer, we make full use of all the methods available to emulate a vast number of styles, however it still comes down to plain old drawing skill in the end. If you need an illustration done in a particular style, just send us a sample, and we'll create a whole new composition based on that theme.
Here is an "art nouveau" style rendition of the artist/painter Tanya Lehoux, who also happens to be a terrific model!
