Clothes & Shoes by Arnoldo L. Romero
Greetings! It's been a while, but I'm thrilled to have something to post amongst this talented group of artists. The current theme reminded me of the work I used to do during my college years back in the 80's, as a fashion illustrator for a small chain of department stores.
The background is a page I used to cleanup my brayer when I was working on some Gelli prints I couple of weeks ago. I started of by sketching the figure with charcoal and then coloring her with pastels. Next, I sketched the flowers and used oil pastels to color them. Finally, I used a calligraphy marker and a pen to letter in the title. It was fun illustrating this young fashionista!
Hope you have a blessed week ahead!
