Fashion Illustrations of the day: Rihanna for British Vogue + Making of a Fashion Illustration
Today I'm back with another fashion illustration of mine. I'm sure that for fashion lovers the image of Rihanna gracing the cover of September British British Vogue is nothing new. You've probably all seen it by now. But you haven't seen my drawing of this cover (or maybe you did in my stories?). I think this was the first time I've ever illustrated a fashion cover. What did you think about the cover, btw? I obviously liked it, since I drew it and all. I do like this dramatic and theatrical make up look. Not something for every day, but perfect for that editorial. It was sure fun drawing this one.
I drew this little illustration some time ago (about two weeks ago, I think). As you might have noticed, I've been a bit absent from the blogging world. Thank you for all of your kind messages. These past two weeks were a real challenge for me, but let's hope it all works out well so that I might return to blogging again. For people suffering from immune and chronic illnesses (like myself), the change of seasons can be especially hard. Although the weather has been nothing but sunny and extremely warm, my health has suffered a lot in the past few weeks. I can't really promise to be more active in the blogging word, because that will depend on my health status, but at least today I'm back with a new post. My illness robs me of much time, but I think the best thing is not to dwell on it too much. With good time management skills and a bit of self-discipline, I do often manage to find time for art. It is true that art is very time- consuming, but I have no plans on giving up on it. I guess for me art is simply worth the time invested in making it.
Today I'd also like to share with you the process of a making of one fashion illustration. I drew this fashion illustration to practice, but I like how it turned out. Lady in red and all that. Red is my happy colour, you could say. I often feature red outfits in my fashion illustrations. This pencil drawing was a pleasure to draw. Maybe I'll upload it to my shop, maybe not. I'll think about it. How do you like it? I still haven't posted photographs from my last joined art exhibition. Maybe I should save that for the last post. That's about it for today. My new post will probably also be devoted to fashion illustration. Have a great start of week! Thank you for reading.
