Tanya Ling

Tanya Ling's fashion illustrations have always been an inspiration for me - they remind me that illustrations don't have to be a photorealistic portrayal of the subject, and that the emotion in a drawing says so much more.

The fluidity, boldness of the strokes she uses breathes a different quality to fashion that photographs just can't achieve. I had the pleasure of seeing her original works at Fashion Illustration Gallery (FIG), and it's even more amazing in real life because you can see exactly where the brush was, and all the detail of the paints and inks mixing.

See her work online here.
