31 days to make 31 images. 7 more Ink fashion illustrations from my Instagram feed.
Week 2 of Inktober saw me taking some inspiration from the recent Paris Fashion Week. Phoebe Philo’s belted coats and sheer dresses from Céline’s ready-to-wear collection, and the draped lines from Stella McCartney.
You’ll also be seeing some references from the 50s & 60s throughout the month’s ink fashion illustrations. I’m currently binge-watching Mad Men whilst working on this project. I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to finally catch up on Don Draper’s antics.
Don’t forget to check out last week’s images here
Every October artists across the globe take on the Inktober drawing challenge. The idea is to create one ink drawing every day for the entire month. The idea was conceived by Utah based illustrator Jake Parker in 2009 to improve his inking skills.
Whilst there is an official prompt list of topics for the daily images, I’m sticking to one of my styles of illustration and creating some loose inky fashion sketches. I’ll be updating my blog once a week, but come and join me on instagram to see the images go up as they are done.
