Guillermo’s trademark style is willowy, high fashion versions of celebrities and fictional characters with full lips and sunken cheeks. His work is flawless. I am always on the edge of my seat waiting to see what celebrity or character he is going to create next. I highly recommend you follow him on Instagram!

Nichols, Holly. Web. 12 Sept. 2015.

Holly illustrates both red carpet and street fashion, but I want to focus on her street fashion because it makes up the majority of her work. Her characters and their apparel are so relatable. I constantly find myself loving an outfit and thinking of what pieces in my wardrobe are comparable. I don’t suppose there is a way to make the clothing materialize and find its way to my closet?? I also want to highlight her skill of illustrating hair with body and movement. That cannot be easy, but then again I am 0% talented when it comes to drawing. Random Thought: Holly’s characters remind me of My Scene. Anyone else remember My Scene??

According to the bio on her website, Inslee uses both ink and watercolor paints (“About”). She has definitely found the “Magic Mix.” The raw edges of the paint balanced by the precise edges of the pen produce beautiful results. This seems an appropriate time to mention my love for the gradation that watercolors produce. It’s the little things!

Zenou, Izak. 2015. Web. 12 Sept. 2015.

I would describe Izak’s work as contained chaos, and I mean that in a positive manner. There are a flurry of colors and strokes varying in size and direction; one can feel the movement of each scene. The illustrations feel slightly imperfect and rough but also stylish; they are fashion in motion. Random Thought: There appears to be a faint, fuzzy texture visible over some of Izak’s work; it brings me back to my art school days and the feeling of printmaking paper in my hands.
