I’ve been waiting for MONTHS to share this with you guys, and I’m so so so excited to finally let the cat out of the bag. I was approached this past fall by Copic Marker, the creators of my absolute favorite fashion illustration tools. They asked me to design a few pieces for them to use on the packaging of a brand new product that they would be launching in 2014: the Sketch 24pc Fashion Design Wallet. This is a convenient little pouch that includes 24 beautiful sketch marker colors, perfect for fashion designers and illustrators. Needless to say, I freaked out (and I’m still freaking out), said yes and have been (not so patiently) anticipating the release ever since. So without further ado: introducing the brand new Copic Fashion Design Wallet starring 2 fancy gals!
If you’re toying with the idea of getting into fashion illustration, or you’re already illustrating and just looking for some new weapons to add to your arsenal, pick up this set. These alcohol-based markers are truly fantastic. I was addicted well before having the opportunity to work with Copic, and I swear by them. They blend beautifully, they have an extensive range of vibrant colors and neutrals, and the ink doesn’t fade at all. I’m so incredibly honored to be working with this company!! (Can you tell?)
Ok, my last bit of news for the day! I’ll be launching my official fashion illustration and photography website very soon! There will be a print shop where all of my latest artwork will be available, and other exciting goodies that I cannot wait to share!! I’ll be posting updates on Instagram (@tifforelie) in case you want to follow along!
Do you have an interest in fashion design and/or illustration? Tell me about it! I’d love to hear!
Here’s a short list of a few of my other fashion illustration must-haves:
