WE LOVE THE PEOPLE WHO WEAR OUR GLASSES. MOST OF ALL WE LOVE THEIR STORIES. HERE IS ONE OF THEM.
Adriana Picker – An Illustrated Life
What’s your name? Where do you live?
Adriana Picker. Elizabeth Bay, Sydney.
Tell us a bit about what you do for a living?
I’m a commercial illustrator, working across the publishing, motion picture, and advertising industries. I have had a love of drawing for as long as I can remember with a particular passion for botanical and food illustrations. I’ve been fortunate enough to work with some amazing clients including Murdoch Books, Absolut Vodka, Mambo, Quay Restaurant, Catherine Martin Home and Gourmet Traveller as well as doing costume illustrations on the films Mad Max: Fury Road and the award winning The Great Gatsby.
How does Sneaking Duck fit your lifestyle?
Creativity is core to my life – both work and personal. Being able to express that creativity through my glasses, in a way that makes me feel confident whether at work or play, makes Sneaking Duck perfect for my life.
What do you do for fun?
I am basically a 75 year old lady in a 28 year old’s body. (Maybe apart from the heavy drinking) Last weekend on my only day off for the week I went and bought plants from the friends of the Sydney Botanical Gardens. I also like to go on Bushwalks and show off to friends about my plant identification skills.
When have you been the most creatively satisfied in your life? How did you feel and what did you do?
Just recently when I was asked to illustrate an adult colouring in book called “The Garden of Earthly Delights.” Knowing that my work will be published is very satisfying.
If you could speak to your younger self prior to finding yourself now, what would you tell “you?”
Your boobs will not get any bigger!
What do you like the most about Sneaking Duck?
They have a great range of glasses that suit every face. Love their lenses and fashion forward frames that don’t break the budget. The “try at home” service is also amazing as well as their customer service and packaging.
Sneaking Duck frame of choice?
At the moment I’m loving my Wonkavator sunglasses.
What are the 3 items that you can’t live without?
Campari, fresh flowers and sassy friends
