I’ve been experimenting with my illustration style, I started practising a continuous line drawing. I tried to make the image seem natural and raw. Some of my illustrations do need colour but for now I like this one just as it is. I took my inspiration from the artist Lucien Freud and the illustration book ‘Desiner La Mode.’
I also explored the idea of natural fabrics and textures, from my research I have been collecting in my summer sketchbook. Muslin is great for draping and manipulating. It’s rough texture makes it easy to manage, and it’s lightweight structure falls perfectly on a bias cut. This sample was an experiment taken from a garments detail, at the Madame Gres exhibition in New York.
