Fashion Illustration

Headbands! The textures are from fabrics I dyed myself!

Volunteered for Fashion in Detroit this weekend and had such a wonderful time! Here's a photo I took of Detroit's own, Motor City Denim Co. by Joe Faris. I saw 7 different fashion shows, met some of the designers, networked, and came home inspired!

Here's something from my sketchbook I did while I was killing time when we weren't busy with checking guests in.

Deconstructing The Chair

Here are photos of us taking the chair apart!

Ewww. A few of the many many dusty layers.

BamBam occasionally came in to encouraged us with kisses.

Almost there!

Proof that I worked on it too!

Taking apart was like learning its history! We discovered that it was once reupholstered long ago and that the person who did it probably uses a staple gun for everything. He also used three different types of nails and decided to redo this chair in a way that it was not meant to be. Basically, he did a half-assed job. Either way, we exposed its true form, cleaned it, and now getting it prepared for its final transformation. Big big thanks to my Patrick for helping me!

The Chair!

Here are some process photos of me slaving away through the night before critique.

Lalala.. drawing is fun!

Okay so now all I have to do is ink this! It'll only take a couple hours (9pm).



Went home, showered, took a 2 hour nap, then went to class at 8:30am. Took everything in my body not to pass out during the critique. I have Richie to thank for keeping me company throughout the night!
