I’ve recently had a lot of fun mixing up the mediums I use for my fashion illustrations. My go-to has always been drawing or painting in vibrant color but today I went back to the basics–using simple computer paper and a number two pencil so that my design turned out to be black and white.  

I love the simplicity of sketching in pencil and I love adding detail with texture.  Whenever I sketch, I always find myself inspired by vintage outfits and very feminine looks–dresses, skirts, etc.  This outfit was inspired by vintage two-piece suits from designers like Chanel. I added some classic gloves and boots to the look. For more original RELish fashion illustrations, visit my online shop. Enjoy!
