Run - Illustration Friday

Bun Run

My take on run :
On the runway!

Lines up with my newest TV addiction, "Project Runway".
Do you love Tim Gunn? (He's got a great blog, if you're a fan..)

This is decidedly deconstructed outfit - reminds me of mid-80's
Yohji Yamamoto
, 'back in the day' when I used to study Vogue cover to cover. ;)

In the good ol' days before the internet..in other words, the stone age! :)

oh one last thing - this is digital (photoshop). I have it listed
under pastel on Illo Friday only because it looks like pastel.

Enjoy!

This is so cute! I love your interpretation! I am a graphic designer so Project Runway has become the hottest topic Thursday mornings. People that claim to never watch tv are tuning in. I love Tim Gun's PodCasts. I feel like you get so much inside info.

I love this? Can you share the process .. You have attained a beautiful soft affect

Kathy Weller said...

Hi Rhonda! Thank you so much! That is such a compliment.

Let's see. It is all done in photoshop, and I used a limited palette, a few browns and white, and let's see, I chieved the pastelly effect from doing a lot of scribbling with varying sizes of pencil tool, and varying degrees of transparency (someties no transparency). I don't know how helpful this is...oh, I also acheived a 'layered' effect by first blocking in the bunny in dark brown, then I scribbled in all of the color in white.
Thanks for the compliments, again! :)
