Don’t you think we should have more fashion illustration??
…Photography is great, photography is wonderful. Photography probably moves product off of store shelves more easily than illustration, but golly, isn’t illustration lovely? I wish that mags and ads would feature more of it. The colors make me smile…especially if illustration is in watercolor!
Some of my favorite internet places to view fashion illustration??
Where to start….
The Flickr Fashion illustration pool is a great place to go to find fresh images and ideas from lesser known/seen artists.
Then there is Illustrophile, a blog which features delightful illustration and commercial art.
And last but not least Illustrationweb represents/features the portfolios of oodles of pro illustrators and graphic designers.
Every time I visit these sites, it feel like I’ve stumbled on Christmas in July (or in this case, September). There is always something good and something sweet to see!

-I will post some of my own fashion illustrations quite soon! I do so so many, and never seem to post them…this will change!
-I’ll also do my yo-man duty and cover more Fashion Week excitement. I love the video feature on my new iPod nano, and tune in to style.com podcasts and Mod TV for spiffy deets on S/S ’10. Lots of colors, lots of cool backstage stuff. Highly recommend it!!
