Rosie was commissioned from across the pond , by INSTYLE magazine to create a series of on trend illustrations for their September issue . These are such a refreshing use of illustration and I couldn't be more pleased with the results. Hugely proud of Rosie, and a delighted client as well !
For you Rosie super fans, here's little Q&A With the lady herself..
Lipsick : How did you find your style ? Has it changed since you started ?
Rosie : " I have always drawn people, predominantly women, and regularly attend life drawing classes, this along with my fashion design education and experience has combined to create my practice - using strong, figurative lines alongside my knowledge of garment construction/fabric/design.
I think my work is always developing, if only inevitably, through practice and new subjects. However I believe an underlying, signature style is always present and recognisable, again, probably inevitably so. I'd say this is the case for most people with a creative practice."
Lipstick : How did you get started as an illustrator ?"
Rosie "During my studies I always preferred the illustrative, design and presentation aspects of the fashion design process, rather than the technical, which I had no patience for - this lead me to pursue Illustration upon graduating and my practice has evolved since then. My first commissions were producing runway reports for Net-A-porter and Garage magazine, which was great. I like the fast-paced work of illustrating to support reports, no time to labour over anything, but the illustrations must be instantly recognisable and capture the look of the show."
