  • Client: Johnny Rocket - Fender / Category: Illustration

Commissioned by Fender from Johnny Rocket Jewellers the piece is homage to the greatest guitarists from each of Fender’s six decades. The project took me 7 days of applying over 50,000 Swarovski crystals by hand to the body of the guitar after we decided on the concept. The exhibition gained enormous press attention with features in The Guardian, Daily Mail and on ITV and BBC news. The exhibition world tour included the Gallerie Lafayette in Paris, The National Museum in Ireland & Harrods in London. After exhibition the piece sold at auction with the proceeds going to Maggie’s Trust for cancer care.
