Fashion Illustration

I LOVE fashion illustration! I wrote my thesis at college on the topic. At that time I did not foresee a career in that profession as photography had taken over most editorial and advertising pages. I lamented the lack of fantastic illustrations like those from artists such as Erte, Rene Grau, Rene Bouche, Kenneth Paul Block and Eric, amongst others. However, the last few years have seen a resurgence of fashion illustrations appearing in advertising and on products, from greeting cards to tote bags. Artists like Bil Donovan and David Downton are carrying on the spirit of the 1950's with a contemporary cutting edge to their wonderful illustrations. So it is time for me to explore and see what I can do myself.
