Favoured Illustrator - Annie Wu

Found an really talented illustrator off the site, Annie Wu. Freshly graduated from illustration school in 2010, she has a really funky and urban style, slightly remimiscent of Marguerite Sauvage, with a wicked sense of nerd humour. I've been going through her illos but my favourite is her reinterpretation of the JLA. Read more...

Books - Alexander McQueen

I was again at Chapters and found this awesome book Alexander Mcqueen Genius of a Generation. The pictures are gorgeous and the description of Alexander McQueen is a bit shallow but it's great for a bit of inspiration.

David Downton - new book

David Downton is one of my most favorite fashion illustrators. I was in Chapters yesterday and happened on his new book Masters of Illustration It was sooo gorgeous and gave a good beginning of the world of fashion illustration as well as one third of the book was devoted to his own art. My only complaint is that I wish more of his collection was there. For more information on him and the process there's a great interview here.
