Fashion Illustrations

Here’s a small selection of the pictures that happen when I feel like making pretty things. Most of these are a little old, expect more soon! I’d be very happy to collaborate with any designers or models on illustrations like these, feel free to drop me a line if you’d like to work something out.

Blue Dress and Patent Shoes, Walking Downstairs (August 2014)

A somewhat Alice in Wonderland-looking colour scheme to this illustration. And a reminder that I should probably find out what most of these items of clothing are called. I would definitely like to make some patent shoes with wooden platform soles soon. Volunteers for testing would be welcome.

A Few Minor Adjustments (2013)

Another shoe-themed picture, a candid moment on a rooftop. Those ribbons can be so awkward.

I had some fun with the juxtapositions here. I do like the implications of putting military fatigues with, at best, semi-practical shoes, & the general sense of being a world away from all that horrible stuff. Camouflage & ribbons could be made to work seamlessly.

Green Suit (April 2013)

Making shoes is a fun thing. I got the idea for making shoes from drawing lots of people wearing clothing including, but not [necessarily] limited to shoes. Then I thought drawing people wearing fancy schmancy shoes like the ones I want to make would be a good idea too.

Chair, Pen and Beer (2013)

A youngish person in a natty dress & very natty shoes enjoying a few of my favourite pastimes. I can neither confirm nor deny that I was in the pub when I did this drawing or the sketch that preceded it. Similarly, I can neither confirm nor deny that there are beer marks on it.

Red and Black Dress (2013)

One of my first attempts at this type of illustration. I was still finding my feet with the style at that time.

Gothic Black Dress and Stockings

I’d very much like to put a real dress like this together, and I started making something resembling the stockings/chaps/whatever out of some stretch jeans, but they got stuck in a box & might be picked up again sometime maybe.

Hells, I want to go out on the razz in that dress. It needs making, which means I need to learn how to make dresses.

Gothic Suit, Cape and Blue Leggings (2013)

And I’d quite like to wear this out on the tiles as well. That won’t be possible unless it exists, so if I (or anyone else) wants to fall over gracefully, it needs to be made.

One thought on “Fashion Illustrations

  1. Awesome work dude. I particularly love “A Few Minor Adjustments”. The dynamic of the figure is really working here.
