Filed under: design — iheartcouture @ 4:33 pm

week 2

illustration work for 60’s mod/pop art inspired swimwear. We were given creative license with these illustrations (YAY!) so I was able to morph my figures a bit and stylize them more than usual. I think it really adds to the overall effect of the drawing and creates a certain mood. These are my worked out figures on sandwich paper, and my inspiration. The swimsuits will have bold color blocking and merimekko inspired floral applique. I’m illustrating on the chartreuse Canson paper that is shown with all of my marker tests. It’s due Wed along with an additional 11×14 illustration and 2 croquis…2 one-piece, 2 bikinis.

    omg this whole website is wonderful to look at I could never get bored by looking at this and reading all the information. I did a board just like this and I’m taking snippets of pictures from magazines and then putting them on a board and every year I’m making a new one then hanging them on my ciling. It kinda looks like this in a way. I just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate this website and how much it has inspired me.

    After leaving my fashion background behind somewhat over the years what an amazing creative inspirational person you are. I always believed that fashion was something from within and you certainly have it! yes that elusive power to portray style. You have given back key to the door I thought was shut long ago to me!
