“This piece [for film magazine Little White Lies] had very tight criteria: an image of Brad Pitt’s face made of leaves.
“Restricted to one colour on black, this became about capturing Pitt’s essence as simply as possible, with no space for fancy stuff. Building onto a background of black, my focus was on the negative shapes of his eyes, nose and mouth. The face-on pose is important, as it needed to be clear and immediately connect with the viewer. Once these key areas were drawn correctly, I could sculpt the rest of the face with leaves, giving the gold foil maximum impact.”
