You're warmly welcomed to my mind as I serve you with something fresh 'n' different with style. This is my attempt in conjunction with ZION MMV label to celebrate today's contemporary "fly" babe/chic/honey/boo and lady who's got some........ (guess you know what I mean). This is style. This is cozy. This is swag'. This is hip. This is design. This is fantastic. This complements they way she flaunts and rolls those eyes. This is -"WOW"! This is "SELENSE"- a word i grew up to know as a slang for "show-off". This is a series of "fun" sketches I've made in my quest to show the FASHION ILLUSTRATOR bit of me.
These works were made in my bid to express my love for casual cloth designs, haute couture and how they clad her perfect structure. They were made with the burning desire to change the looks of the images we see in our style mags, to appeal to a wider audience that loves something cool, chic 'n' sleek. This will soon be a sexy collection of sweet, chic and I-must-get-this T-shirts as I collaborate with ZION MMV (the coolest brand to come out of 9ja) to hit out some cool T-shirts for that lady who knows.
My interest in figure drawings has made me see the possibilities of creating images that will NOT only appeal to our eyes but further help to open our minds to see beyond whatever object/subject that is before us. The curves, contours, elegance, different poses, shape/form and dynamic body movements of the female figure grant some juicy inspiration to create some images that ooze of style... images that celebrate God's perfect sculpted pieces.
It's been a healthy and fun-filled exercise ever since I started playing with this (can't even remember when exactly). It gives me room to experiment with different mediums and styles ranging from the manual to digital. It also helps me develop my sketching pace and sense of composition. The use of lines basically plays a major role in doing this and colour combinations complement the lines to make it visually appealing.
There's no limit to how this could be pushed.
While you're seated relaxed, please ensure you have the coolest visual dialogue.
I'll most appreciate your comments on this series.
