SO I've officially decided that I'm going to put together an illustration portfolio this year, probably focusing on fashion illustration, kind of for fun and kind of in the hopes that I can get a couple of free lance jobs here and there once I graduate or during the year. while this is obvs super in the works, (as in I decided this an hour ago) here's my first sketch! consider my illustration career officially taken off!
This is obviously inspired by CDG's F2009 blanket coats and tulle shifts, and I drew her with a Katana (probs not even accurate because I wasn't using a reference) because Comme des Garcons is Japanese? Because then she gets to be a bad ass flying through the air? Because then I get to give her Lucy Liu hair? WHO KNOWS. I just made up the thigh highs and shoes, although those may change with the final draft, I like the idea of Proenza Schouler booties. I need to get it down on bigger paper and color it, but I'm really excited to spend my free time this summer putting this together!
