80s Fashion inspired portrait

80s Fashion inspired portrait - student project

Great class Maia! This was a fun refresher course and I love the seeing the process. I hope my inspiration is obvious - Who remembers those fashion illustrations from the 80s? When I first went to design school - I was so excited for my fashion illustration classes - I’ll never forget the alien looking croquis I drew using the 8 head method and how I loved those 80s style drawings I saw in the nail salons and my textbooks. I learned about the work of Patrick Nagel then and I was forever inspired gotta love that 80s iconography! This weeks drawing was inspired by his style and I wanted to channel it while working on this class project.
