I love it when worlds collide: coffee + drawing = happy me. So when I was asked by Westfield to create an illustration to be printed on limited edition coffee cups for their Fashion Saturday last weekend, I was a little happy.
On the day, I recreated the illustration at a larger scale, then settled in for a few hours of fashion illustration portraits. A fine way to pass a Saturday afternoon…
I’d just like to say – I LOVE drawing interiors! And buildings for that matter. No tricky faces to make look perfect, no pesky hands, no tricky moving body parts or unusual positions. Pure. Fun. So I couldn’t have been happier to be commissioned by St Louis At Home magazine to illustrate the serene bedroom design of Julie Abner. And did I mention I would rather like that bed…
If one of your new year’s resolutions was learning to draw/getting awesome at drawing/reigniting your creative spark or even just having fun, then consider a course in Fashion Illustration! The Patsyfox Drawing Salon is officially 5 years old so Happy Birthday to us – come eat cake starting next Monday…
Is working on your tan getting boring this summer? Well then why not consider a day spent drawing beautiful fashion illustrations? Focussed and intensive full-day workshops are happening over the next couple of weekends at The Patsyfox Drawing Salon.
Watercolour & Ink Technique is a response to the many many lamentations I hear from students about the mud-pies they make when working with watercolour paints and inks. No more! We will learn the basic techniques and effects of these media and apply them to some gorgeous illustrations.
Then next most common problem I see with many people’s drawings is the hair – helmets abound as drawing after drawing is spoiled by badly drawn hair. We’ll untangle all those issues in the workshop on Sunday Feb 1st…
The Digital illustration workshop was created as a hard-and-fast hit of information for those who need to get on board with the Photoshop program to create, edit, or enhance their illustrations. This is a 2-day workshop that will quickly go from the basics to more advanced techniques and effects.
You will learn a lot, you will have fun. Come on!
Happy New Year dear visitors to Patsyland! I’ve had the most delightful two years filled with hard work, new friends, music and art, and I’m planning on going for the trifecta in 2015. I hope your year ahead is happy, peaceful, and successful in every way you could wish.
Bonne chance XO
There’s a bunch of people around this country opening artful gifts this xmas commissioned from me, and just possibly the ink won’t be quite dry… It’s been that sort of year. What can I say? They may have been picked up on the 11th day of Xmas but at least they made it!
Have a great Xmas everyone and if Xmas isn’t your thing then have a great break, eats lots of your favourite things, and do some unnecessary online shopping – or is that just my idea of a perfect day?
I take research for any freelance job seriously. Never more so than when creating a series of illustrations for Magnum icecream’s 25th birthday celebrations. Honestly, I don’t think I’ve ever been so consumed and consumed so much chocolate in all my chocolate-loving life. Tough days at the office. Not!
Some jobs fit like a glove and are instantly relatable. The beauty illustration featuring a gorgeous well-groomed woman with immaculate make-up and nails, commissioned by Jetstar magazine, was not one of them. The commission where they needed an illustration to match the story about people who hoard old make-up and keep it in a mess, however, was a perfect match. I simply walked down to the bathroom, grabbed an armful out of the drawer, dumped it on my drawing table and drew it. Voila!
