So I know I haven't posted in over a week, and I can only apologise for that. Schools been pretty crazy, and there simply hasn't been enough time to write an entry! And while we're on the subject of apologies, I was going to do an outfit post today, but my camera has run out of batteries. Everything is just going oh so well at the moment.  But its okay, because I have a fair amount to say now :) And its now half term, so I can spend as long as I like making my blog look more beautiful and lovely and interesting.

Anyway. I was going through a book on Fashion Illusration, and found what I think is possibly my favourite illustrator ever. I've always found fashion illustration interesting, because as photography has kind of taken over in that industry, and I feel that it can represent the clothes in an entirely different way. Drawings can convey character in an entirely seperate manner to photos.

They're by an artist called Laura Laine, and are pretty lovely. I prefer the second of the two, the smaller, skinnier figure, because it exudes so much attitude. Its pictures like these which show why illustration of fashion, not simply photographs of lifeless clothes are so important.
