Sigh ! Where do I begin with Leanne Marshall’s show ? I’ve been in love with her designs ever since I first saw her work featured on NYC Dance project’s Instagram feed. I’ve illustrated her work before here and here.
So, if it looks like I’m a fan, well , that’s true. The show had beautiful color palettes – black, warm colors – brown, burgundy, sunshine yellow, pale greys all with flecks of gold in some of the dresses. The dresses are to die for. Every model looked like a princess as they floated past us . And if you can tell from the photos, I got a nice seat for this one .
Leanne Marshall’s work inspires me to draw every single one of her works. Maybe someday ! In the meantime, enjoy the photos, videos and the illustrations. Her work should always be recorded in slo-mo !
I couldn’t wait to illustrate them. The fabric, the silhouettes, the colors, the sheer, the drama – all make for beautiful illustrations and create themselves all on their own .
I cannot believe the year is almost drawing to an end. Its the beginning of December. In our household, it means, I just got done with both my kids’ birthday parties. Majority of the birthdays in our family begin in October. My sisters, my husband, father- in-law, my niece , my son , my brother-in-law and my daughter. Lots of birthdays, phew !
December begins with my daughter’s birthday , there’s holiday parties, Christmas , my own birthday and of course the year ends – in that order .
There’s lots of illustrations to be done , in all of this, of course.
I’ve been busy with a few commissioned pieces, which I love. If you’ve been keeping up with me on Instagram, you’ll see the stuff I’ve been playing with.
It’s hard to pick , but here are some of my favorite pieces.
I came across this gorgeous dress designed by Suneet Varma, an Indian designer. The red just caught my eye . Give him some love. Really one to watch .
This particular piece was regrammed by the designer. yay.. to me its a recognition that the designer appreciates the way I interpret his vision in my own way. I also feel very connected to the designer and his/her vision.
Who doesn’t like shoes and heels ? Pair them up with some frayed hem jeans as reported by The Zoe Project – you’ll be on point.
I love illustrating movement , as is obvious in many of my sketches – be it fashion , street style , dance and sport . Its all about conveying that energy in an artistic way. I am inspired by the photographs taken by the nycdanceproject . If you haven’t checked them out, you should. Here’s a sketch inspired by their picture from last Monday.
More shoes. I love them .. which girl doesn’t , right ?
Pantone delighted the world by announcing the Color of the Year for 2016 – not one , but two – Rose Quartz and Serenity ! Thank you , Pantone !
This dress .. speechless !
I also want to highlight the fashion happening in Australia . I am an Indian-born Australian living in the U.S. I tend to stay connected to all these parts of me through illustrating them . Keeps me inspired and hopefully , I bring to you content that is fresh and new.
Lastly , I want to leave you with this gorgeous ballerina – yes, again …
This one just felt like she was floating – poetry in motion. One of those pictures that you feel just has to be illustrated !
I hope you have a lovely week ahead of you . I will be back again to share more with you . In the meantime, email me – lsartillustration (at) gmail.com) to say hi or follow me on Instagram to keep up and connect .
