Sam Hadley was commissioned by Elmwood to produce an illustration for the Soho based cafe chain 'The Breakfast Club'.
They were looking for a classic airbrush style pin-up illustration to go with branding on the side of their 'Festival Bus'.
They looked to the iconic ‘Bomber Belle’ livery designs of American warplanes for inspiration – something that would capture the new venture’s pioneering spirit and remain true to the vintage, tongue-in-cheek approach of The Breakfast Club. Flying the tablecloth is ‘Madame D’Arblay’, named after the Soho street in London where the Breakfast Club’s first café was opened.
The Breakfast Club is also looking to a run a series of t-shirts and other merchandise with the same design! Keep your eyes out!
