A new and memorable form of entertainment
As an experienced live illustrator in Melbourne, Melina has built a solid reputation in the industry across the last decade.
She has been invited to entertain at events such as Vogue’s Fashion Night out, Caulfield Cup Carnival, David Jones and Crown for the ‘Women in Media’ Christmas Party.
Melina’s illustrations have become the keepsake of many event guests and attendees; as each unique sketch captures their unique essence.
Let me entertain you
Live Illustrations are perfect for product launches, company parties, corporate hosted events, sponsored activations as well as private events such as weddings, birthdays and hen's parties. They are a special way to add a personal touch to any celebration; allowing guests to take home their own custom portrait as a gift to remember the event.
Exclusive Parties & Weddings
Melina is set up with a table and performs 10 minute portrait drawings of the guests on the spot, showcasing their fashion, hair and characteristics. She uses traditional mediums such as pencils, ink and copic markers.
When the artwork is finished, it is signed by the artist and packaged with a backing card then enclosed in a plastic pocket. Guests are then gifted their artwork as a keepsake to remember the event.
For exclusive events some people prefer digital illustrations. It requires less physical space and the guests receive an email with the final artwork as well as a timelapse video of the creation. Melina works on an ipad, she can walk around and ask if guests would like a portrait or she can be seated and be approached.
Want to turn it up a notch? We can use a projector to share the screen in real time, now everyone can watch the artwork come to life on a large wall.
Fashion Brand Windows
Live art and illustrations have grown popular amongst fashion brands.
Melina has been placed in shop windows for Bardot in Melbourne Central and Review, which attracted crowds of shoppers as she got creative and shared the drawing process with the public.
