Artist of the Day…Liselotte Watkins

Boy, have I got a GREAT fashion illustrator to share with ya’ll today! You must check out the work of Liselotte Watkins – it is superb! Her illustrations and editorials are filled with color, sensuality, fashion, and beauty.

Watkins got her start editorial illustrations when she was contracted to illustrate the make-up ads for Barney’s NY for the New York Times. Her unique style and use of color and line garnered much attention and she hasn’t looked back since. Other clients that have utilized her awesome works are H&M, Elle, Vogue, Volvo, Anna Sui, & Sephora (amongst many others).

Watkins is now based out of Milan and Stockholm (she’s a US native), so it’s no wonder that her illustrations would be so vibrant and powerful – those cities seem to be such inspiring places. I really, really, love her illustrations – I wish I could draw like this, haha! Be sure to check out her blog as well!
