Teaching Fashion Illustration at Landor Associates

Back in December, I had the lucky chance to spend the morning with the graphic designers at Landor Associates in their Cincinnati office. I spent the morning introducing them to the world of fashion illustration and taught them a few of my favorite techniques. It was a really fun and laid-back morning, and a perfect way to celebrate the end of a year.

The invites were designed by Landor, and they looked beautiful!

And so the class began...

I supplied the materials and inspirational images, and the crew at Landor supplied their immense creativity and humor all throughout class.

I spent about an hour giving them instructions and walked around and gave them some one-on-one instructions.

Towards the end of class, I gave my students a lesson about live runway illustration. I played a video of the Diane von Furstenberg Spring/ Summer 2014 show while my students gathered around and watched me illustrate. Afterwards, I let them practice at their desks.

And that's a wrap!
