FEATURE - THE CR8TIVES

"What does it take to be an illustrator?
I would say it takes practice, passion and determination.”
 

I was asked to be featured by THE CR8TIVES, you can find the full feature here . THE CR8TIVES is an online platform that provides the opportunity for creatives to showcase their talent and connect with others and gain inspiration from others that are like-minded.

You can also see my blog post about the feature here.

deyvarah said: Hello! I stumbled upon your blog when looking through the fashion design tag. You have a beautiful clean style and very nice designs. I'd love to know what kind of medium you use for your sketches (what pens and such, the books look like moleskine?) and whether you do pre-sketches before inking. I'm an aspiring illustrator myself and I admire your work and wish you all the best! :)

Hey! Thank you so much, I really appreciate the lovely comment. Your work is fantastic too! ^-^

Generally I use Copic markers (ciaos), standard biro pens and sharpies. Occasionally I will use a mix of acrylic paint and watercolours (my favourite watercolours are winsor&newton cotman). 

For sketchbooks I use Moleskine’s and my Fashionary sketchbook mostly.

Yes I always do pre-sketches before I ink my illustrations. If I ever get inspiration i will always make a quick sketch. 

I wish you all the best too! :) x

Check out my Blog post about illustrating for Omar Mansoor’s SS15 collection.
