Frances Stanfield

Illustrations done by Frances Stanfield are totally rocking our world right now. Although the young illustrator specializes in a variety of areas for her work, it is obvious she is a fashion illustration aficionado. Stanfield’s illustrations are incomparable to any other fashion illustrator we have seen. She has a vastly stylized approach. Stanfield’s pseudo-primitive style is so energizing to view and bring a true uniqueness to the fashion world. Her easy-going lines create perfect contrasting compliments in all of her pieces. The simple outlines on the figures coupled with the gestural and abrupt lines in the figure’s hair and garments are exactly what we are talking about. But of course it doesn’t stop there, as she strategically dabs paint on to complete the figure. We could talk all day about how cool and artful we think Frances Stanfield’s work is, but it’s time to let the work speak for itself and see what we’ve been raving about!

Visit her website here to see her range of illustrations and be sure to follow her blog to stay up to date with her work

Her mock magazine covers that we are yearning for prints of.

Just a few examples of her stellar fashion illustrations.

Is your world now rocked? We hope so! Happy viewing, get inspired!

Chelsea is an artist with a paint brush and is fabulous at watercolor.  She specializes in typography and blurring the lines between illustration and graphic design.  And, not only is she incredibly talented at designing, picking beautiful color combinations and just being generally crafty: she also runs a blog and Etsy shop where you can follow her beautiful life and buy her work!

Needless to say, we’re impressed and hope you are too!
