My top 5 illustration of 2017

This is a bit of a self-indulgent blog post to celebrate the end of the year.  My best bits… according to… me!

I was aiming for a top ten but to be honest I could really only manage five drawings that I was sufficiently pleased with to call my top illustrations for the year.

So here they are in no particular order (okay “Stella” is my fav, but after that …)

Stella - gouache and graphite pencil illustration
“Stella” 2017
Alisha Nesvat for Mani - graphite and pencil illustration
“Alisha Nesvat for Mani” – 2017
fashion illustration of Lindsey Wixson in Chanel
“Lindsey Wixson for Chanel Fall/Winter 2013” – 2017
Fashion illustration - Eudon Choi Spring 2018
“Eudon Choi Sprint 2018” – 2017
Graphite and pencil illustration
Untitled – 2017

 

 

I am adding in one more illustration as a special mention.  This illustration of Alisha Nesvat in Rodarte Spring 2018 is a bit of a love/hate one for me.  I really like the concept, the composition, the negative space, the hands.  BUT …execution let me down with the flowers and the gold background.  If I had of got those elements right this would be my favourite illustration of the year.  Oh well I like to think either way I always learn something out of the process.
