An awesome piece done by the talented Mara that includes your boy Elvis. Also included in this work of art are my fellow fashion Illustrators Jimmy Skarbek, Meagan Morrison, Michelle Quintero and Minnie Wang.
Here are there blogs check em out they’re all dope:
Third piece. Accordion portfolio. FIT Fashion Illustration AAS Show.
Painted in gouache and edited in Photoshop. You could call this a tribute piece since every character in this piece is based on a real person. I used a photo I took in Incheon airport as my reference for the background.
This piece is actually a tribute to the fashion illustration class of 2011 in FIT and also to Professor Karen Santry who did so much for us. I painted her as a teenage girl on the far right side of the page.
The girl sitting next to her is Michelle Quintero also a brilliant artist and one of my classmates. She does wonders with colored pencils and is famous in our class for drawing faces on her projects that look just like her! She draws a lot of laughing faces!
The guy behind her is Elvis Towers also a classmate and president of www.fashionartnyc.com This guy is behind our class site and I’m pretty impressed how he’s always giving us updates on the site and asking us if there’s anything we need to improve.
The girl sitting on the back is Minnie Wang who looks cute and illustrates the cutest girls! She is the vice president of fashionartnyc.com and one of my closest friends in FIT! Both her traditional pieces and digital works are beautiful and colorful! Also soulful! AND she was featured in Oscar De La Renta’s PR girl’s tumblr!!
Last but not least, who is that girl in the back holding a camera? She’s my sister Hannah! She’s the one who updates ESIUOL ARAM. She actually started that blog without my knowledge. She likes my class works the most. She takes pictures of them and posts them when I’m too lazy to do it myself xD Thanks sis!!
On more thing before I go. The word UBOS means “down” or “low” in visaya. It is also part of the name of the place where I used to live- Poblacion Ubos, Loay. Sentimental much? ~_~
That’s all about I can say for this piece. Two more to go!!
