I’ve had a love affair with hand-sketching from the time I could clutch a pencil. What’s made sketching new to me is all I’ve learned of Adobe Creative Suite, both in college at VCU and now in my day job as an assistant designer in Manhattan’s garment district.
This image is of the Undecillion (my new clothing brand) Spring 2014 “Tingle Dress,” which is part of the “Origins of the Tao” collection. I first drew it by hand, then scanned it and finally colored and shaded it using Illustrator and Photoshop. I think the resultant image is an accurate depiction of where my illustration style is headed!
