Thierry Mugler x Lady Gaga

Rough and refined sketches for my new piece based on an article about Lady Gaga's recent runway debut for fashion designer Thierry Mugler. I'm really excited to work on the painting! This is probably my favorite piece yet.

Fashion Illustration

I've chosen to create a menswear lookbook/catalogue for Gap Inc. clothing retailer Banana Republic for Visual Narrative class. I'm doing the graphic design layout, as well as designing new branding materials such as logo, hangtag and shopping bags. In addition I am creating technical flat illustrations/creative fashion illustrations of garments in four catagories: Comfort Casual, Professional Poise, Stylish Sophistication and Fearless Finesse. I'm juxtaposing a rough-and-ready traditional drawing/painting style throughout the book, contrasting with the clean-cut look of the technical illustrations and actual Banana Republic garments.

Here are the four fashion illustrations I have created for the project.

Sorry for the lack of updates recently. I've been working very hard on our years' grad book, and on my website, as well as designing mailers and business cards in preparation for the grad show. I'll post the mailers and business cards in a bit, but for now here's my website!

CD Cover - Lady Gaga | Government Hooker

CD cover for the Lady Gaga song Government Hooker. A remixed preview of the song was showcased recently during a Thierry Mugler runway show. It's to be released in her Born This Way album in May. The song sounds pretty promising.

Rolling Stone Series 2 | Zooey Deschanel | Classic

Mixed media and digital

Piece two of the three-part series for Rolling Stone magazine, created in my Illustration Thesis class.

In this piece is Zooey Deschanel from the band She & Him. The sound of the band is very vintage and loungey so I wanted to play with that in the colours and feel for this piece. I chose a polka-dot decorative motif for the piece due to that soothing feeling reminiscent of past music.

Rolling Stone Series | Rihanna | Bloom

Mixed media and digital

This piece is the first in a three-part series of illustrations for Rolling Stone magazine created in my Illustration Thesis class.

I wanted to focus on different genres of music for each piece, and this one specifically is of Rihanna and would accompany an article review of her new album LOUD.
