THIS SITE and ITS SECTIONS ARE IN PROGRESS. PLEASE RETURN FOR UPDATED CONTENT and THANKS FOR VISITING.
On this site, find many resources, histories, theories, artists, works of art, illustrations, drawings, collage, artifacts of past uses off fashion illustration, ephemera, and images related to or using objects and clothing. Anything I can relate to fashion illustration to expand understandings, definitions, and applications of this art form.
Happenings page includes resource, exhibit, video/film and reading links, as well as events, workshops, and more.
Artists past and present will include musings and research about fashion illustrators, how illustrators use fashion illustration, work with models, garments, designers, and historic artifacts to make works that record and deliver editorial perspectives for various purposes. Illustrators’ seductive enthusiasm is infectious, subtle and not so subtle, well-drawn or unskilled. Fashion illustration fascinates artists and enthusiasts of all ages, temperaments, and cultural political settings. It is ageless, timeless, and entertaining. It has educational value, and can turn around the career of a designer as with Dior and Gruau.
The histories page will dwell more on specific examples of illustration trajectories, styles of working, how the advances of materials, methods, and technology from the print press to the airbrush have expanded how artists work, and how audiences can view beautiful art.
