Sophie Toulouse

French artist Sophie Toulouse is a fashion illustrator working in the realms of digital media. Toulouse creates her work on a large scale, bringing her contemporary graphic designs to life on gallery walls all over the world. Her works are graphic, detailed and imaginative. Her philosophy about art and her work is that it is a form of therapy, both for herself and her audience. Toulouse also sees her lifestyle and her relationship with her work as a relaxing luxury, only ever working for two hours at a time, in between going for walks, coffee or a chat to give herself a balance and freedom to really enjoy her time creating when she does.

This is an illustration I did of one of Sophie Toulouse's digital works in felt tip.

Maren Esdar - Mixed Media Collage

Maren Esdar is a German born fashion illustrator specialising in mixed media collage. Esdar completed studies in the areas of styling and illustration, using these experiences to create unique, surreal and imaginative artworks.

Through her works, Esdar explores strong themes and imaginations with past works seeing connections between the topics of human fears and phobias, with one such collection titled arachnophobia. The relationship between cruelty and beauty has also been touched in her illustrations. Her works are a fabulous reference point and an imaginative source of inspiration.

Lisolette Watkins

A gorgeous fashion illustrator who has inspired past illustrations of mine is Swedish born Lisolette Watkins. On May 24 I posted an entry about Cassandra Rhodin and I thought her illustrations looked really similar to Watkins in the way that both use bold lines, feminine muses and portray their subjects with large alien-like eyes.

Lisolette Watkins studied at the Dallas Art Institute and has worked for the likes of Vogue and Elle.
