I, like most ladies, take part in the tea sipping, fashion-mag flicking ceremony that occurs when your fave publication hits news-agency shelves. What better way to start your day then idolizing fancy fashionistas in a freshly bought magazine of your choosing right?
Maybe it's because I can't sit still long enough to let my attention span re-adjust to relaxing and concentrate on something that isn't my light box, but I have been disjointed from my usual Frankie reading ritual and taken on a new online-lurking addiction to lookbook.
Lookbook makes me feel that all of the best parts parts of fashion magazines have been thrown together and put together for all to see minus the boring ads and newsagceny fees.
I have been learning a lot more about fashion through other people's examples, and find that even though I don't hold a lookbook account it's nice to get inspiration from the fancy boys and classy girls who do.
As an illustrator I constantly need visual stimulation to grow, and expand on the subject matter that I draw - otherwise things become stale and people lose interest. So, I decided to branch out and do what other fantastic artists like Nancy Zhang, Gemma Correll, Kelli Murray and all the other clever fashion-orientated arty folk do, and draw some of my fave outfits by lookbookers to kick start my creative engine.
I hope you adore these ladies just as much as I do.
It was radical playing around with textures and doing something 'Out of the Norm' for me.
