Kat Macleod - Illustrator
One of my favorite fashion illustrators right now is Australian illustrator Kat Macleod. I love her linework and usage of watercolor mixed with collage:

Quote:
Kat Macleodís collage ladies will inspire confusing feelings of wardrobe envy, even though they are drawings and not people. She finds fashion, textiles, new art supplies and old books inspiring. Her clients include Vogue Entertaining and Travel, Collette Dinnigan, Harperís Bazaar, Madison and Frankie. She has also illustrated two books, Bird and The Cocktail Book. She enjoys hot chips, talking on the phone and her cat. She hopes to continue working with good people on beautifully designed illustration projects.

-The Jacky Winter Group




















And my favorite one:

I adore Kat Macleod.
I was lucky to pick up two of her original drawings at her recent show in Melbourne. I'm so in love with them.

yes that was actually a quick sketch and then digitally colored it's now one of my favs. I've posted my illustrations a couple of times in the tfs art gallery and illustration threads. Joining tfs has inspired me to do more!

I will! One of them may not come out very well as there's alot of stitching and beading so I don't know how flat it will lay!

And thankyou so much, i'm glad that you like them
