IF: Hoard


And suddenly she's back from the dead!

Yes, I know I'm lame and haven't posted in 2 months, but I swear I have good reasons. I've been hard at work on several projects at once, none of which has been fit to post here. Yet. Hopefully I will be able to throw some of the work I've done up here in the near future, but I have other plans for the blog as well. So stay tuned and hopefully I will have more goodies to show shortly.

For my return to Illustration Friday, I decided to post about something that I am guilty of hoarding - fashion magazines and catalogs. This is a habit that I inherited from my mother, and one that I'm pretty sure I will never kick. I love looking at fashion, especially when it is photographed well. I very rarely have time to actually walk into any of the stores I receive catalogs from, and even when I do, I am usually either overwhelmed or intimidated within seconds and end up walking right back out the door. Having catalogs delivered right to my apartment allows me to enjoy all of the pretties from my favorite stores while sparing me the trip. Plus, they are full of so much drawing inspiration! Honestly, that's part of the reason I keep them....even though I hardly ever look through them more than once or twice. But today they are coming in handy! Today I am glad that I hoard them!

These two poses come courtesy of the"White House/Black Market" catalog. Um, I love this place so much. And that dress?! I would live in that dress if I had the money to buy it. And looked like the model. No, seriously, I would.

Nice drawings. I also love well photographed fashion. You should make illustrations for fashion magazines :)

Sandra said...

These are great. They are beautiful figures and I to love the dress.

Bella Sinclair said...

Ooh la la! These are very chic and eye-catching. I agree with you. I'd buy that dress in a heartbeat if I looked like that! And then I'd just sit there, just like she's doing, for hours and hours. :)

Eli said...

Nice! I really like the pose and the patterned dress on the bottom one especially.

That's funny ~ before I read your post I thought, "These drawings remind me of a Black Market/White House catalog", ha ha Love 'em! (and I want that dress too!)

I think this is so funny Britt because everyone except me gets fashion magazines, and I'm the one that wants to end up working at one. Irony. I really like the character with the dress on, and I think you'd look great in that dress! I'll keep an eye out for it.
