>> I'm in Paris chugging away at work but sadly not here for the haute couture festivities so bear with me whilst posting is a little on the slow side. I'm very very appreciative of drawings and illustrations that I get via email but of course it would be a bit odd to post every single one as though I was saying "Hey look at me getting drawn and stuff – isn't it just amazeballs?". Well, it is amazeballs, not because I'm the subject but because the talented illustrator has such as Victoria Riches, a Kingston fashion student has taken the time to draw me. Victoria is aiming to do 10-20 sketches a day to get her creative juices flowing (is it me or is there something visually WRONG about that expression…). Apparently talented people CAN just knock out five or six drawings/illustrations like these in a singular morning.
Now I have a series of sketches to show to whatever sprogs I might have in the future. Like "Hey, do you remember blogs? Well I was this fashion blogger and people were kind enough to draw me… yes there was a time when I had an abundance of hair and my legs were vaguely slim… yes, that is a LOT of clothes I'm wearing… err… oh well, here are these pretty pretty sketches."
