Recently, Draw A Dot. and Valentino held an open call on Instagram for illustrations featuring the Mime bag. This is my submission for the open call. My illustration was not selected as a finalist, but I had so much fun creating this piece. Plus, it was fascinating to see how other illustrators approached creating a piece featuring the Mime bag. All of the amazing pieces created for the open call can be found here.
For my piece, I wanted to convey a sense of movement. My goal was to make viewers feel as if these ladies are going on an adventure.
The light, airy and romantic white cotton lace looks from Roberto Cavalli’s Spring 2015 show were simply amazing. The incredible embroidered details lend a sense of whimsy to this outfit, so I decided to give the subject in the drawing a hair color to match feel of the look—playful and romantic pink. Plus, I can’t get enough of the pastel hair color looks that are so hot right now!
The backstage photos of the models in the Giambattista Valli Spring 2015 Couture Show were so fun and gorgeous, so I created this drawing inspired by the photos. I adore the veils with bows and polka dots, because they are unapologetically feminine and playful.
