I've always admired illustration as a form of art. There's something telling about a cannily formed line drawing. Luckily enough, I've had the pleasure of meeting, knowing and working with some incredibly talented people. Four of these include artists Charlie Herman, Hormazd Narilwalla, Lauren Zeitoun and Danielle Meder, who over the past year have all transformed my image in their own uniquely creative way. A thank you to them all - check out their fantastic work below.
Charlie Herman was educated at the School of Communication Arts in London and has a portfolio to match the best. He's got a photo-realistic quality which is superbly difficult to create, while still adding his own touch to everything he produces.
I've never met anyone like Hormazd Narilwalla before, and I don't think I ever will. Having perfected his craft working as the Resident Artist with a respected Saville Row tailor, he is currently creating portraits from the bespoke suit patterns of deceased clients. The result is a abstract, geometric perfection.
Parisienne Lauren Zeitoun has an instantly likeable personality and an infectious smile. These qualities are clear in her work, as her passion for vintage comics and storytelling shows through quirky, fun illustration.
Danielle Meder is a Canadian fashion illustrator. She's one of these people that most people envy: multi-skilled in every sense. With a vast knowledge of fashion, an true intellectual, talented freeform illustrator and paper doll master, she's just being greedy. Check out her blog at FinalFashion.ca.
