Pen & Ink







Here are few illustrations from one of my favourite fashion illustrators Christian David Moore. I took life drawing and fashion illustration classes when I was studying for my fashion degree and the frustrating thing about it is that it looks so much easier than it really is. The good ones make it look so effortless - a line here, a brushstroke there and 'voila', a fabulous drawing! But I can promise you to be this good is not just lots of practice it's a rare talent and great gift that only a few possess!
