Motorcyclists are more associated with hussars than with uhlans … but since an Uhlan driving a Suzuki 1800 cruiser makes an order, I want to fulfil such wish.
I mentioned earlier (here is the link to the first part) that hussars would be accompanied by Uhlans. While the motorcycle hussars could have raised doubts then, in the whole project it was meant to be a common element for both motorcycle parts. So this time I made a replacement for the back of Suzuki cruiser. The name ‘Rawa Mazowiecka’ is engraved in Gothic style. Finally, the whole was polished to a mirror shine. Below is a picture of the work on the desk, before polishing.
I always attach fragments of projects to my work. Recently, I have significantly increased the time for both calligraphy and nib drawing exercises. I am happy to add graphics like the one below. Thanks to this, my clients can be sure that everything has been done by hand from the first ideas and sketches to the packaging. It is the whole that determines the value of my work, which I aim at from the beginning. This is of course only a certain stage and I am sure that with each project you will see the effects of the next dozens of hours of exercise. Unfortunately, it rarely happens that the customer lives close enough to be able to install the received work on site. This time, to mutual satisfaction, it was possible to take a photo right away. I am glad that the Uhlan has already started the picnic with the motorcycle works ordered.
I enjoy the fact that the client leaving my studio is more aware of my style and when ordering another job, this time for his wife, he can choose freely among ideas. That is why I put a lot of emphasis on working on a project together: the client talks a lot, I ask a lot and draw a lot.
