November Edition

Illustration of Alexa from Elle Nov using graphic pens and watercolour.

Alexa Chung dons the cover of Novembers Elle which is actually a little bit strange I think because I in particular wanted Novembers Elle & Vogue as a kind of keep sake as they're the month of my 21st Birthday, I was fully expecting the worst covers in history because of this fact but I was in luck... anyways the kind of strange thing is that Alexas birthday is the same day as mine, November 5th! So makes it more special, norrr. I had to do an illustration of her now didn't I? I found myself picking up my graphic pens and decided on a bit of a continuous line style using the pens and watercolour for little splashes of colour, prints avalible on my ETSY shop.

Video footage on Elle from behind the scenes of the front cover shoot, lots of lovely 60s inspired images. JADORE! One of the best editorials in a while that I have seen personally. I am coveting all of the clothes in particular the black long sleeved body con dress with white collar, simple yet still knock-out perfection. I am also on the hunt for a similar leopard print hat that is also featured and can be seen in the video.

This blows my mind. You are truly talented. Too bad my 3 year old nephew colors better than I do, I could never even begin to illustrate something like this.
