The Artist

An illustration done for A Fashionable Challenge. The prompt went something like this; 'This week we're looking at creative types, creative dress sense - eccentric, colourful, crazy or strong statements!'
I found inspiration from one of my favourite artists, Frida Kahlo. I recently bought a book about Frida's clothes called Self Portrait in a Velvet Dress. It is a gorgeous book specifically about her clothes......lots of beautiful full colour photos, showing the amazing colours and detail like weaving, lace and embroidery.


  1. i definitely must get that book - this is wonderful

  2. I like very much the background, the red drawings on the pink :o)
