This is my first ever entry for Illustration Friday and my first 'fashion' illustration for my current folio. (Previous trials and tribulations can be seen here and here.) It's winter here in Melbourne, but for me the ideal cold weather outfit has a lot of colour and pattern to counter the grey. And why not travel around the world vicariously through your outfit, I say?
You know that everything is going to be OK when the sketch goes smoothly, as this one did. And though I scanned the final picture and cut out the background to make it a clean white, for the first time EVER I did not touch the picture itself. And I must admit that I am pleased about that. Below: inspiration for the outfit came from one of my favourite books, Tibor and Maira Kalman's (un)FASHION. The scarf is my own.
