As I'm digging more into my "Anonymous Girl" series and connecting with photographers to collaborate, I am so inspired and excited about what has come about so far! For this portrait in particular, I connected with Kandis from Kandis Marino Photography and immediately fell in love with this image of Christina from New Darlings. I knew it would translate well to a drawing!
I am really drawn to fashion photography and the non-verbal communication evoked through the model's pose. The fashion inspiration I glean from often shows up in my drawings; whether it be in the models pose, the look on her face, or the clothes she is wearing. I felt this one in particular really coincided with Free People's recent launch of their Festival Days Lookbook (See it here). For me personally, I'm inspired by simplicity, ease, and a sense of quiet. So, for this piece in particular, I melded together the inspiration from Free People and my own personal drawing style to create the portrait below!
I just released this drawing a print in my shop (here), so hop on over and get one for yourself!
