This was my first attempt at fashion illustration, going back many years. It was for a cocktail party invite. I’ve always loved to draw, ever since I was little. One of my favorite genres of illustration is fashion – it’s remarkable how some artists can capture the exact mood, emotion and attitude of these beautifully elegant women.
My mother’s dream was to be a fashion illustrator, it’s secretly always been one of mine too. There’s something so captivating about this style of art and it’s simplicity. One day I will find the time to take it up again and practice and hopefully become really good at it – you know when something simply flows from pencil to paper with the utmost ease? I want to be that good. I’ll just keep doing simple sketches because that’s all I really know how to do…for now anyway.
