In a week where Ronnie O'Sullivan won his seventh World Snooker Championship title — equalling the existing record held by Stephen Hendry — our client, portrait painter Jamie Wilkinson, proudly hand-delivered an original artwork to the new Ronnie O'Sullivan Shop in Meadowhall, Sheffield.
Since we created this viral campaign for Jamie in 2019, our journey with him has been a beautiful one, and now, with a TV pilot arriving later this year, the future is full of even brighter colour and promise.
On his ongoing relationship with Redtooth — the memorabilia brand behind the Ronnie O'Sullivan Shop — Jamie beamed, "It's a pleasure painting original artworks for their shops and events. Ronnie is arguably the greatest and most loved snooker player of all time, so to be part of this new chapter in his legacy is a 'pinch myself' moment."
Here at Icons & Machines, we couldn't be prouder of Jamie because his down-to-earth character has not changed one ounce since we met (despite the fact he's now rubbing shoulders with the rich and famous!). Ronnie himself went on record — confessing that Jamie paints better portraits of him than anyone. High praise indeed!
Keep an eye out for our new TV show featuring Jamie — created by our Founder, CK Goldiing. That's all we can say for now. Oh, also, it's unmissable!
