Ted Baker – Animated Elizabeth I Portrait

We were really excited to be approached by the creative team at Ted Baker to create a ‘moving eye’ portrait for a new store opening in Hong Kong.

The portrait of Elizabeth I as a young woman, was to be animated to give the impression that her eyes were following you.

A stock image of the Queen was printed and painted over to give the impression of a real oil painting. Mounted in a bespoke gold frame, it looks like an authentic painting!

The eyes were cut out, manipulated, repainted and mounted behind the portrait on a motor, which gave the eyes a side-to-side motion.

The Queen takes pride of place in the window of the new store and has received great praise.

Such a fun project!
