Fashion Collections

The Two Versions of Dior.

About a year ago I drew a thumbnail sketch of 5 girls laying on their backs. The concept for the picture was that I wanted it to have dynamic composition and be interesting from every angle. Once I finished the thumbnail, I set it aside for another time. Then a few months ago, I decided to illustrate Christian Dior‘s couture collection, and that thumbnail sketch was the perfect framework for the clothes. For three days straight I worked on the picture. It was 30″ X 40″ on illustration board. I used brushed ink and ink pens. I know I have already posted this picture in my Fashion Book, but I actually have 2 versions of this illustration. The original version is almost completely black and white, and the final is colored digitally. I actually mailed the original to Paris to The House of Dior two days after I finished. Still haven’t heard anything back from them… maybe someday. haha
