Pretty Sketches

Fashion illustration never fails to make me wistful about the fact that a set of watercolours is as much use to me as a pair of pastel Laboutins to a goth. Spanish designer Jordi Labanda is an all time favourite for his kitsch sketches of trendy teens. At university I would only ever carry notebooks with his etchings on the cover and was always complemented to them. As I'm always on the lookout for what 'de rigeur' my attention was piqued by a magazine illustration that oozed chic, cool and smart - hey I like to that I'm about all those qualities. Turned out they're by a illustrator called Grant Cowan and aren't they great? A sprinkle of colour goes a long way. Enjoy!
