Antonio Lopez - Fashion Illustrator
Puerto Rican/American illustrator. There is not so much on the net to find about him, but there are some books out there for everybody interested in his work. I own "Antonio's Girls", which is good, but definately better is "Antonio 60-70-80". His drawings are perfect imo, even if they sometimes are not exactly my taste.

article (and pictures) on an antonio exhibition in 2000:
http://www.artnet.com/Magazine/featu...est3-31-00.asp

antonio lopez and juan ramos:
http://latino.si.edu/virtualgallery/antonio/bios.htm

i've always liked antonio's fernand leger inspired series from the sixties (pictures scanned by me from the book 'antonio 60-70-80' edited by juan ramos)
... he definitely was immensely talented but some of his overloaded eighties' work in all its colour-madness makes me nauseatic ..

lol, i know what you mean, antonio is for me a love/hate thing, or better i am in awe for many of his stuff and then i loathe for example his big series of shoe metamorphosis (there is an example in the article you posted). sometimes he drifts to real kitsch, and i don't get the feeling it is meant in an ironic way.

^i love also that black and white drawing Estella Mare has posted.
it's very different from other fashion illustrations i've seen... maybe it's the facial expressions and muted colour that makes it kind of mysterious

Antonio's work is great. Here's an image of his circle in 1974, Paris (Antonio's girls). Note Jerry Hall hamming it up...

From Antonio's girls.

To drawings from AG - some of his things can be almost messy, but when he gets it right...

From Antonio's girls.

Everyone who loves Antonio should read "the Beautiful Fall" by Drake. It's an amazing tell all about the decadent 70's (actually follows YSL and Karl Lagerfeld from 50's til now) Anyway, the info on Lopez and Juan and their genius fashion flair are documented throughout the entire book.
