When Brian Tanner, owner of Coleman Public House (CPH)
in Mt. Pleasant in South Carolina, visited on a vacation the city of Athens - Greece in summer of 2017, came across to some of my street pieces. After exchanging some emails, i was gladly commissioned to create two illustrations 50 x 70 cm pieces to hang on the walls of this great bar / restaurant.






Illustrations: Dreyk the Pirate    |    Photography: Stefanos Milionis






About the illustrations
We agreed that the illustrations had to depict the indoor interiors
of the bar / restaurant like a movie scenes, including some key - characters such as colleagues, clients etc. So, after briefing me with some pictures of these persons as a reference, i started working on it.






The draft sketches




The inking and colouring process
I decided to use a Yellow tone on "Coleman Blvd Tales I" and 
an Orange to "Coleman Blvd Tales II", so they slightly differ from each other, but be chromatically close on the same time. Both pieces were created with Ink and acrylics.












The final photoshooting & details












"Coleman Blvd Tales I"
