I have started on buffing up my portfolio because all it has in it are school projects. Blah. I am only working on preliminary sketches so far but I wanted to share what i've been working on
I was inspired by a million different things (as always). I am loving the breton stripe. Think: classic Parisian silhouette with edge. I wanted these girls to have an attitude but to be comfy. I love stripes so I wanted to use those for my patterns to mix with tweed, fur and silk.
sorry about the picture quailty! I promise to start scanning....
Girl 1: Breton Strip top with Harem pants, cowl neck scarf and Awesome bag
Girl 2: Her favorite men's dress shirt with highwaisted tweed pants
Girl 3: Silk dress w/mirco-pleated skirt paired with a striped cardi + belt!
I am unsure of the middle girls outfit. Imagine her vest like this fabulous furry vest:
I feel like that makes a difference. But, your comments and suggestions are welcome.
This may sound weird but I'm excited to draw all the technical flat sketches for these designs!
It just started raining. Wish I could stay home and draw......
Feeling a little cooped up today, so I ventured outside for some green inspiration and fresh mid-August air. Definitely helped the creative vibe and such.
I love using a softer lead pencil to sketch like a 3B or 4B, it allows for more movement and ease across the paper (image that said as I'm swaying back and forth with my hands in the air creating a hippie-like motion). Ha!! Yay for Sunday afternoon drawing time.
Miss Angie Harmon in her Dior by John Galliano just knocked my socks off. Too bad she wasn't wearing the matching elbow length gloves, so vintage and glam. Speaking of Mr. Galliano, what is he up to these days??
Really?!?!?!? So I saw the title for this email "Wartime", and I was expecting military inspired jackets with the slouchy pants combo and possible grunge stud gloriousness. Much to my surprise I clicked and saw this....I must not be hip enough to appreciate this look. Really. Really?!?!?!?!?
This has been Really!?!?!?!?! with Anna. Thank you and have a good Thursday.
For the link to see the rest of the looks check it out, some are better than this one atleast.
