Social networking sites such as Facebook, Linkedin and Twitter have been a god send for those in creative art careers. It has become the most successful and effective way for people to connect. Fashion bloggers, online stores, Fashion designers, PR companies, online magazines and companies have been able to network, making their careers and business thrive. Whilst on Twitter I decided to follow a Fashion Illustrator called Michalis Christodoulou. I checked out his website and after looking through his portfolio I was highly impressed !
Fashion illustrator Michalis is based in London. His hand drawn illustrations are created using a mixture or ink and watercolours. His work consists of editorial and fashion advertising commissions. In my opinion Michalis' strongest illustrations are those of catwalk shows.
Here's are my favourite illustrations by Michalis.
Alexander McQueen A/W 2009/2010
Christian Dior Couture S/S 2011
Marc Jacobs S/S 2011
Christian Dior Couture A/W 2010/2011
Michalis' illustrations have been featured in several publications including Ballad Magazine, Amelia's Magazine and he currently works for online fashion company Dressipi. Michalis Christodoulou's illustrations look timeless and effortless however every detail of the garments is present. His ability to capture the elegance and glamour created by designers such as Jean Paul Gaultier and Christian Dior portrays just how talented he is. I predict I'll see alot more of his work soon !Make sure you have a look on his website !
