A couple of months ago I was commissioned to produce illustration for Fashion Africa, a beautiful new book about African Fashion Design by designer, blogger and founder of the Africa Fashion Guide, Jacqueline Shaw.
I was thrilled! Apart from being such a wonderful project, the designs I was asked to illustrate were the most colorful and charismatic pieces I have seen in a long time. An absolute joy to draw!
The book launch is on Friday, 9th September, in London. I can’t post the full drawings yet, but here are some sneaky peeks:
Unfortunately, I won’t be able to go to London for the book launch. It’s a shame, as I would LOVE to attend and do some live illustration on the spot (like I did for the launch of Amelia’s Compendium of Fashion Illustration. It was amazing!).
I can’t wait to see the book, though. I am expecting some very bright and colorful pages.

Lots of love from Lisbon.
