Whilst anxiously awaiting the arrival of my extravagant copic marker order, I’m practising with just five colours. I’m torn between the bright, clean look of the markers and the soft feel of watercolours and gouache. More testing and practise needed with both before I can make any decisions on the direction of my work.
In the mean while, here’s a quick, half-finished copic girl looking into the distance contemplating a difficult, life-altering decision – or possibly just posing for the camera.
Today’s illustration features the beautiful Michelle Madsen‘s outfits from her Instagram feed. I love her relaxed, everyday kind of style and modern colour palette.
A full on black outfit gets more interesting with a pop of sheerness. See original outfit on Charlotte Lewis’ instagram feed.
Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia has now finished and I’m only just starting to give it the attention it deserves. Here’s a quick street style sketch, inspired by an awesome pink outfit

This is such a classic every day outfit that I just had to capture it. You can’t go wrong with skinny jeans and a leather jacket! The leopard belt makes it unique.

One of my favourite websites to browse for inspiration is Who what wear. This illustration was inspired by their article on minidresses and sneakers worn together – not my personal favourite but I loved this outfit by Shea Marie.
She is the designer behind a gorgeous line of swim wear called Same Swim.
Inspired by the lovely Merrick White, this outfit is just perfectly cool. Go over to her blog post to find more information about the items. I especially love the shiny loafers from Carvela.
I mean, why would you not wear short shorts with ankle boots? Yes it’s impractical but so cute.
The denim shorts are inspired by J Brand. Ankle boots are by my favourite, Gianvito Rossi. Necklace is from a lable called IAM by Ileana Makri
Bag, of course, is Céline
She’s wearing a Lanston dress and Gladiator sandals by Free People.
This illustration is fully inspired by an image on the Revolve website. I love the labels they carry and am often on the website drooling over their hot list. It helps that their models always look incredible and have beautifully styled hair. I’m loving the tousled half-topknot on this lady.
She’s wearing a Kendall+Kylie trench and a Nytt cropped top underneath. The shoes are by Joe’s jeans and on sale now. This is a great transitional look, although you might need to swap the shoes for something more weather-appropriate.
