In this workshop, fashion and lifestyle illustrator Izzy Wells will teach you an experimental approach to creating fashion illustrations using a wide variety of different media. We will be taking inspiration from runways, editorials, nature and everyday life to create striking, expressive illustrations that explore the formal elements. This workshop considers many approaches that develop drawing skills but also work as a visual communicator; forming your fashion illustration style along the way.
Throughout several exploratory exercises on different layers and surfaces, we will be collating them together through art direction to book bind them into a fashion zine. These zines will then act as a body of work that communicates your creative process and then finally embellished through typography. Izzy thrives on artistic expression and practices worrying less about perfection – going with the flow and embracing those beautiful mistakes that make your work shine bright. You do not need to have drawn fashion illustrations before to take part in this workshop.
