“Nostalgia is a file that removes the rough edges from the good old days.”
Recently when I was browsing online for inspiration photos for an illustration, I came across a drawing by Fashion Illustrator Robyn Neild. I was so taken with the image that I went sleuthing to learn more about her and her work. With a clientele encompassing top magazines and publishers, fashion, cosmetics, animation and even TV, Robyn seems to have quite the enviable career. But I’m even more in awe of her sense of line and the fabulous expressions on the faces of her “fashionistas.”
Take for example this simple, yet scrumptious illustration…
Or this comically fierce one!
I’m certainly a fan…and if you want to see more of Robyn’s work, hop on over to her website here!
I worked on a new illustration today and was pleased with some elements, though not so pleased with others. Since I don’t usually include men in my illustrations, I found myself struggling a bit with the expression on this one. For the redo – yes, I’m planning to redo the illustration tomorrow – I’ve already enlisted my husband’s help with posing. The color scheme also needs a bit of tweaking, but I’m not going to give away what I plan to do.
Hope you’ll stop back again soon to see my progress!
