One assignment for my fashion illustration class involves making an inspiration file. It is a time consuming process...but also very, well, inspiring. I flipped through lots of magazines, creating tear sheets (the sheets torn from the mags) - then I cut out the dresses, skirts, blouses, details -- and pants - I need more pants. After cutting the garments away from the rest of the page, I tried to group them into like styles and glued them to card stock. Now I will go through and label the details.
I am also posting some of my first sketches from class.
