FROM THE SKETCHBOOK

lamp-2

I have been sketching away a lot lately and the above fashion illustration was a fun one to create.  The inspiration behind it actually came from Project Runway because I love how the designers on the show are always tasked with creating garments out of some crazy materials.  

In my mind, the above dress was actually inspired by office supplies:  the gown itself was inspired by colorful post-it squares that line my desk at work, the hat was inspired by a vintage office lamp, the “gloves” were inspired by bubble wrap and the accents all around the dress were inspired by paperclips. You can see the paperclips all the way up the back of the dress, hanging off the bottom, and then they even function as earrings. For more original RELish fashion illustrations, visit my online shop. Enjoy!
