Well it’s been a wee while since my last post. It wasn’t meant to be this long, promise. But sometimes you just don’t feel inspired, and when you don’t, it’s really hard to create beautiful things.
I’ve been buzzing around on social media looking for some sort of inspiration, lots of colour these days is being used, everyone is slaying the game, but I couldn’t find the inspiration I needed. That is, until I came across the Instagram of Vanessa Vanderhaven. Vanessa is a Fashion illustrator based here in Melbourne, Australia, who creates the most STUNNING realistic illustrations I’ve ever seen in my life (and I’ve seen quite a few!). Her images are so lifelike, her attention to detail is exquisite, I still can’t get over how amazing her shading is! haha. I knew as soon as I saw her page I needed to collaborate with her, and since getting in touch, she has been nothing but a dream to work with! I’ve been itching to create something fun and colourful, and with the time of the year being Coachella time, we thought nothing would be more perfect! I incorporated a lot of colours and threw in some glitter, rhinestones. I even greased up my hair to get it looking just right – the dedication for this look was there haha. I wanted something bright but also graphic – this is where the graphic liner/cut crease came in. Every part of this look was exactly as I imagined and everything I needed to spark my inspiration.
