I don’t know how to explain these.. The owl/girl is staring at me too judgementally. Maybe there’s nothing to explain? The top image is of my friend Meg and is a scan of a photograph which had been printed on crappy white A4 paper and was a bot smudgy and grainy as a result. I then drew over it an scanned it back in- the lines are really faint on the actual image but they have scanned in much harder and more defined. technically, it’s a bad scan but I like it.
sorry these sketches are rubbish and also bent because I photographed them at a slight angle, but I wanted to share (because sharing is caring) some clothes designs I have been doing. I’m really not a natural at this at all which is kind of why I’m doing it. I’m far too lazy to be fashion conscious, but I do like clothes and get really obsessed with style/the beautiful ways that people experiment with clothing. This dress came after loads of crappy sketches where I was experimenting with layers (talking about bottom two drawings here) of fabric. Could not seem to create something that would work but I reckon that this did, sort of. The way I envisage it in real life is a black crepe dress which is semi-sheer with a creamy pearly, stiff sheer fabric ‘dress’ underneath it which drops lower than the hem of the black dress- to just below the knees. The third picture shows the back, which would have chinese knot buttons in a very dark wine red colour. Inspired by my love of the uniforms that beauticians wear, haha. I work In a cafe near a spa and they come in to buy sandwiches quite often wearing these beautiful grey tunics with twisted fabric buttons.. Mmmm
