The image itself is to be used on a t-shirt and marketing material. The character is called Sky and the brief was to make her look tied and exhausted, as if she has just got up in the morning.
Here are some new examples of the postcards I have created. These examples show illustration but also text. The text is from a short story. I don’t plan to publish the story so I thought I’d add it to this art project and maybe give ti away to a Papergirl event in the future. A couple of the earlier images made their way to Papergirl Calgary.
Another 4 images here. I am looking at the form of the clothes and getting away from pattern and style. I may put all my fashions illustrations together as a pdf document, as at the moment I am currently using Indesign for presentations. I believe that these images could work well in a book, but all that depends on how much spare time I have.
Another group of images from my fashion illustration series. It is nice to get away form the computer and draw in pencil and ink. I have previously looked at character, style, pattern and costume, but with these images I wanted to look at anatomy. This is something I have more experience in, but here it is in the context of fashion.
With these images I’m looking at costume design and character. Using pencil and fine liners to get different results I am trying to express the different emotions that the costumes can present. I am also taking influences from the photography of Helmut Newton and the fashion designs of Thierry Mugler.
