Last year I had the privilege to work with the best publisher of fashion books - Laurence King Publishing.
It started with an email from wonderful Gaynor who saw my illustrations on Pinterest and now wanted commission me to illustrate the book "Fashion School Survival Guide" by author Ezinma Mbonu. As much as I was flattered, I also was nervous because... there was total of 60 illustrations to do!
My process involved a help from lovely people I know and without them this project wouldn’t be possible. First, my models: Adrianne, Megan, Oliwia, Dawn and Thomas. Other reference photos I found on Pinterest and magazines - my life savers, really! And great help came from my husband who was taking our little girl Stella out of the house so I could work in peace, especially those long and stressful days before deadline. Just to mention that scanning took me forever!
This was the best experience in my career as an Illustrator.
Here are some snaps of the book, enjoy!
