Exploring Fashion Illustration

Fashion drawing, by Mary Gow

Fashion drawing, by Mary Gow

Today, in remembrance of a special person very close to me, I am posting one of the drawings I created from taking a course that I’d been peeking at in the course catalog for many years and finally took. Though it made no sense to me because I don’t plan on becoming a fashion designer, it did speak to the little girl who loved to draw clothes and meticulously observe design and architecture.

And though I love to paint abstracts, I also enjoy drawing the human figure. Drop in classes for figure drawing weren’t doing it for me so I signed up for a fashion illustration course in the Fashion Dept. at City College of San Francisco. I loved it! This class provided the jump start I needed and since finishing the course I’ve kept up a regular drawing discipline.

I can’t emphasize enough the importance of following a hunch, a gut feeling, even if it makes no sense.
