Fashion Illustration

A while ago I posted about my favorite Children's book illustrators so I thought I would do a similar post about fashion illustrators.

I have recently discovered a new found love of fashion illustration and really enjoying trying my hand at it.
The first is Stina Persson, I adore her use of water colours and delicate line work. I think she manages to use water colour without it looking faint or wishy washy and the colours are so bright and dramatic! She is based in Stockholm and her work is used often in editorial magazine such as Vogue and Elle.


The second is Jasper Goodall who was one of my all time favourite fashion illustrators and one that I have liked since I started studying art in school.

Julie Verhoeven's work is SO colourful and vibrant, I love the big eyed, big haired girls she draws. She has worked with many famous publications but I first saw her work in Guardian and tore it out and put it on my wall circa 2000, amazing. Since then she has even had collections made out of her work, so beautiful.
So you have probably heard of the above three before so here are a few new discoveries for me that you may not have :)
I love Laura Laine's haunting/flouncy/floaty girls..

Monsier Qui is a french street artist/fashion illustrator. I love the use of mixed media in his work..
I have only recently discovered Sophie Griotto's work but I have immediately fallen in love..

And now for my favorite fashion illustrator pals!I'll start with the very talented Tea and Crayon girls

Abby Wright
I know I am overwhelmed to be part of an illustrative collaborative with them!
As I got this part in my post I realised what a huge task it is to feature all the illustrators I admire as I am sure to leave some really good ones so I have limited myself to three more

and lastly Faye West
(a lot of illustrations featured here are also over in articles at Amelia's magazine, pop over to discover lots more talented illustrators and writers!). I think I would go on for ever but I really should stop at some point! Maybe I should do a monthly feature of all the amazing illustrators I have come across. We'll see!
Hope you enjoyed this post! xoxo
