Project Runway Fashion Sketches
In case you didn't know, Project Runway has initiated an art contest from past looks or original fashion designs for anyone willing to share their work. The #ReMakeItWork hashtag in your Twitter or Instagram post will get you entered into the contest. There is a gallery of all the projects that have been submitted so far. They have even called upon those who are brave enough to turn in their own original fashion designs based on the weekly challenges. A few very lucky entries are featured on the show each week. The above is one of my sketches from Season 16 episode 1 that I am proud to say got a like on my Twitter from the @projectrunway account. Whoa!!! I am so grateful for that! If you love a good design challenge but could do without the weekly bickering, watch the show after it airs and fast forward to the parts you want to see. Lifetime has weekly episodes that make it easy to view when and where you'd like. I look forward to seeing brilliant fashion design and illustration styles from all over the world as the season progresses. Here's a link to Project Runway Twitter and Instagram. Maybe I'll see your entry on the show? If so, please let me know in the comments below so I can be sure to take a look. Until then, "Make it work people!"
Spot-On Artist- Sachio Yoshizawa
This week I am featuring Japanese artist and graphic animator Sachio Yoshizawa. A video of supermodel Cara Delevingne (who you may remember from last week's newsletter) skateboarding was painstakingly digitally painted, frame by frame, by Sachio for a summer 2017 Chanel handbag campaign, and was posted on YouTube. Sachio did some gorgeous work and portrayed Cara so well. I am an aspiring animator, so I was super impressed with her work on this.
The above is my portrait of Cara via my website. Yes she has inspired me too! Who moves you to create? Feel free to share in the comments section below.
Copenhagen Fashion Week
Denmark's Spring/Summer 2018 Copenhagen Fashion Week took place on August 8 to the 14th. Their amazing fashion designers rocked incredible looks on the runways with rave reviews. Henrik Vibskov was a particular favorite of mine. The above painting was done with the Paper by FiftyThree app and used as a Pinterest post. It was inspired by the House of Dagmar show on Day 2 of the festivities. You can view all of the runway shows, Copenhagen street fashion, and other stories about what took place on the Copenhagen Fashion Week website.
