Visual Poetry-Essence of Fashion Illustration.

Fashion Illustration is Unique. The ideas, practice and concepts that drive this genre of work are not easily defined. Fashion Illustration documents a window in time, presenting trends and fashion through a historical perspective. It revolves around a fascination with the figure, its form, gesture, movement and grace, filtered through the lens of fashion. Traditionally, stylization has been the guiding force behind this fascination, grounded in a foundation of figure drawing and anatomy, revealing the spirit and essence of the figure.

Today, the fascination with the figure and fashion continues, but is now played against a backdrop of new techniques, technologies, and concepts resulting in work that is graphic, dynamic and blurs the boundaries between high and low art. Themes such as abstraction, mythology, and fantasy, whether representational, expressive or minimal are projected through the personal vision of the artist.

It is an exciting period for Fashion Illustration as this genre of art continues to evolve with captivating images that nurture the imagination, grace the page and charm the viewer, in essence visual poetry.

I had the privilege of documenting Ralph Rucci's Spring 2011 Collection. Ralph's salon is a treasure trove of art, sculpture, creativity, inspiration and of course those ethereal creations.

There was so much energy and activity and the challenge was to capture as much as possible with the economy of time.

Rucci's creations filled the salon creating a floating installation of texture, shape and brilliance.

The models were parading by and the idea was to just move the brush as quickly as they strolled past...

Advanced Fashion Drawing Lifestyle Illustration Book Launch

Friday October 1st was an incredible evening at the Society of Illustrators. I could not have wished for a more perfect evening and location to christen the launch of my book Advanced Fashion Drawing Lifestyle Illustration, published by Lawrence King Ltd. This book has been a five year endeavor and a lifetime of experience as a student, teacher and professional. I was surrounded by friends, family and esteemed colleagues who filled the room with warmth, love and energy.
