Le Magazine

Back in july and august i was busily working on a bunch of illustrations for Le Magazine. I was really pleased with how they turned out and so have been dying to reveal them. Finally, the mag is out and i can do so. First up is a collection of glass perfume bottles, which make want to dabble more in painting objects. I think watercolours are the perfect medium to capture translucence and shine. Secondly is a fashion editorial inspired by classic pin up girls like Betty Grable and Bettie Page. (both who have such glorious figures!) I feel like i'm getting the hang of posture and hands, which makes me happy.
The illustrations sadly got a bit altered and fuzzy when being utilised for the mag, so i hope you can enjoy them here in all their glory. & There is lots more art to come! This week i'll be preparing some new pencil works for an upcoming show in Brisbane, in-between listening to the bell jar audio book and wilting in the summer heat.
