One of the things I love about fashion illustrators—and I suppose illustrators/artists in general—is that they tend to have their own distinct styles. When I first started casually doing fashion sketches two years ago, all I wanted was to develop my own style.
But I thought: To get there, I’d have to experiment and keep my mind open. This means playing with different materials…which naturally lead to different levels of detail, texture, etc. Over time, I’d worked with pens, markers, colored pencils, watercolor, oil pastel, and in a few instances, glitter glue. It was fun.
