To be honest, I’m not much of an fashion illustrator. I don’t have talent for drawing and I’ve never had the patience to practice. I occasionally make watercolour illustrations but that’s for the really big projects, like my thesis. In my everyday life I usually draw quick technical drawings of the garments and then move on to making patterns.
I was organising the folders on my computer the other day when I found some collages a made years ago. There was a period there in the mid noughties when I was really into making collages. I could sit for hours browsing through magazines, cutting and pasting. Though it would probably have been faster collaging in photoshop, I preferred doing it by hand. I found it quit meditative. I think that is a good reason to start collaging again. I’m going to see if I can find some magazines I’m willing to cut into pieces.
I’ve put some of the collages on the website, under Works and Collage.
