Will you draw me/my wife/mum/girlfriend/daughter?
Unfortunately I won't. It’s a daily request and I’m always flattered that people want their loved ones portrayed in my style but at the end of the day portraiture is a vastly different art form to fashion illustration.
What about my cat?
I only do fashion illustration sorry! Yes I have been asked, on occasion, to draw people’s pets. While I love cats (especially mine!) I prefer to draw pretty girls.
Can you design my logo?
This is more of a graphic designers job. I’m currently focusing on the fine art side of my fashion illustration so at this point I am not accepting any commercial work.
Can you re-paint that for me?
No, sorry! Once I have completed a piece I want that piece to be the only original in the world. I have literally thousands of ideas in my head at any given time for new paintings so I won't waste time painting something I have already painted.
What is the smallest original work you do?
The smallest size I paint on canvass is 500 x 500 mm (19.69 x 19.68”) anything smaller and the work loses detail, energy and flow because of the techniques and materials I use.
Why don’t you draw boys?
2021 is the year of Pippa McManus' Boys! Stay tuned...
Where do I find your prints?
On my website under ‘Shop’. I offer a variety of affordable prints in A2 and A3 sizes with free worldwide shipping.
Where can I buy an original?
I will occasionally put original pieces up in my shop. I also hold solo shows every year and put individual pieces in group shows around the world. Two galleries in Australia represent me: Friends of Leon (82 Marlborough St, Surry Hills NSW 2010, 0403 248 978, firstname.lastname@example.org) and Studio 281(281 Guildford Rd, Perth WA 6051, (08) 9271 0922, email@example.com)
