Yesterday I published a brand new illustration. It was for a beautiful article on Coco Chanel and her new biography written by Justine Picardie.
Needless to say, this was the best assignment ever. I was asked to illustrate a portrait of Coco in my own drawing style, so I decided to keep it very clean but have a little fun with it too. This was the end result.
Now, I cannot possibly do her justice. She’s too amazing for my black markers and sketchbook. – But I like to think that she would have enjoyed this little piece of illustration. I did it with a lot of love.♥
Read the article. It’s very interesting.
It is no surprise that I love French women and all things French, so thinking about Coco whilst drawing this has made me miss France so much. I must have been Parisian on one of my past lives, or something, because the love that I feel for that place is so overwhelming. – But then again, who doesn’t love France? It is the most perfect and inspiring country in the world, in my opinion. I feel completely at home when I’m over there.
So until I can make my next trip to France (maybe for new year?), I will keep longing and looking at some pretty things that I photographed last time I was there.
This is me, happy in Paris. Photographed by my dad earlier this year. :)
Beautiful, beautiful place. France, je t’aime. ♥
