Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A comprehensive, visually-led overview that covers all areas of fashion drawing, presentation, and illustration, Fashion Illustrator both teaches students how to draw the fashion figure and provides an extended showcase of established and emerging illustrators.

From initial inspiration through to finished illustration, the book teaches the student how to draw from life and accurately depict body proportions, and also includes advice on exaggerating proportions for effect. A technical chapter outlines the use of different media, showing students how to use color, and features techniques for rendering different materials and patterns. Dedicated tutorials explore both digital and traditional media (Illustrator, Photoshop, photo-montage, mixedmedia, drawing, ink, embroidery) through the work of leading fashion illustrators, giving the student the confidence to experiment with different illustrative styles.

Later chapters outline the history of both twentieth-century and contemporary fashion illustration, and profile influential fashion illustrators and other industry professionals, with interviews providing an insight into life after graduation. There is also guidance on careers for the fashion illustrator, portfolio presentation, and working with an agent.

Synopsis:

Fashion illustration is an essential tool every would-be designer must master, and in this practical and enlightening book for artists of any ability, instructor Bethan Morris covers all aspects of the art form.

Beginning with Inspiration, the chapters in Fashion Illustrator are chock-full of vibrant illustrations and professional advice on subjects like sketching figures, understanding body proportion, and the different range of media available (drawing, collage, digital), presented along with useful case studies, practical exercises, even tips for putting together a professional-looking portfolio. Morris also includes profiles of influential fashion illustrators, who offer valuable insight into the industry.
