Instagram Illustration Takeover

Fashion portrait, behind the scenes

Today I took over The Well’s Instagram account. I walked through a typical day showing a behind-the-scenes look at my illustration process.

My fashion illustration process

I start out with the basic elements. I always work in traditional media to begin. I then scan these separate illustrations into Photoshop.

Illustration drawings and painting elements

Once the illustration elements are complete they are scanned into Photoshop and retouched and rearranged onto a digital canvas.

The final illustration is made of drawing, painting, and even physical objects like flowers, stencils and jewellery. I add, delete and feel free to experiment without fear of damaging the original painting materials. Once I’m satisfied the artwork elements are combined and flattened into a digital collage.
