Richard Gray - Fashion Illustration

Richard Gray is an amazing fashion illustration from the UK who I have admired for a long time now and have looked to for illustration inspiration. His style is eccentric, bold and quirky with Japanese influences. Richard Gray has worked with Alexander McQueen, Givenchy, Agent Provocateur. Gray has also worked with magazines such as Vogue and V Magazine with his illustrations being included in several renowned fashion publications including ‘Fashion Illustration Next’ by Laird Borrelli published by Thames and Hudson and in ‘Wonderland’ edited by Robert Klanten, Sven Ehmann, Birga Meyer published by Die Gestalten Verlag. Gray's illustrations have a surreal, other worldly quality which I am inspired by. I find my illustrations aspire to his in that they are clean but quirky and unrealistic in that the figures depicted have a robotic, disjointed edge to them. I have included Richard Gray in my blog to hopefully inspire and bring out the illustrator in you too!

  1. Brilliant illustrator and a very humble, down-to-earth person. He's also a very prominent university lecturer and I was lucky to have him as visiting lecturer.
