CHRIS KEEGAN937-671-6904 | KEEGANCP@MAIL.UC.EDULINEUP STUDYMIRAGEONE OF THE FIRST FASHION ILLUSTRATION ASSIGNMENTS WE RECEIVED WAS TO DRAW A LINEUP OF FIVE LOOKS BASED ON A WORD WE RANDOMLY SELECTED. I RECEIVED MIRAGE, AND WITH THAT WORD I DEVELOPED A LINEUP CONSISTING OF BLUES AND SILVERS. THE PURPOSE OF THE ASSIGNMENT WAS TO EXPERIMENT WITH MARKER RENDERING IN COLOR, AND BEGIN TO UNDERSTAND COHESIVENESS WHEN DRAWING LINEUPS.FASHION LINEUPBLOUSE RENDERINGRENDERING STUDIESILLUSTRATION STUDIESASIAN COUTURESPRINGFOR THE SPRING COLLECTION, I CHOSE A RICH COLOR PALETTE OF A BEAUTIFUL LAVENDER, AND DEEP ROSE COLOR, WITH GOLD ACCENTS. THE FABRICS WERE FAIRLY LIGHT, INCLUDING SILK, CHIFFON, LACE, DENIM, SUEDE, AND COTTON. THE ASIAN THEME GAVE ME A GOOD DIRECTION IN TERMS OF STYLING THE MODELS WITH ACCESSORIES, AND FOR THE OVERALL SILHOUETTES.ASIAN COUTUREAUTUMNFOR THE AUTUMN COLLECTION, I CONTINUED THE PURPLES FROM SPRING. HOWEVER, I ADDED SOME RICH GREENS AS ANOTHER ACCENT COLOR, AND COOLED DOWN THE GOLDS TONES. FABRIC CHOICES CHANGED TO LEATHERS, VELVET, CORDUROY, TWEED, HEAVIER KNITS, AS WELL AS SOME FUR AND FEATHERS. THE ASIAN INFLUENCE IS STILL APPARENT, MIXED WITH A WARRIOR HUNTSMAN AESTHETIC.ASIAN COUTURECOCKTAILFOR THE COCKTAIL COLLECTION, I CARRIED THE PURPLE THROUGH ONCE MORE AS THE DOMINANT COLOR TO THE BLACKS AND SILVERS. THIS COLLECTION FEATURED A LOT OF FEATHERS, LEATHER, METAL, AND SEQUINS. I STILL TOOK SOME ASIAN INFLUENCES FROM THE PREVIOUS SEASONS, BUT ADDED A GREAT DEAL OF SEX APPEAL BY REVEALING SKIN. FLATS STUDIESMUSIC VIDEO STYLINGROCK THE CATWALK-BRIELLEWHILE AT EVOLUTION STUDIO, I WORKED WITH PHOTOGRAPHERS LIKE ANNETTE NAVARRO. ONE PROJECT IN PARTICULAR WAS STYLING A MUSIC VIDEO FOR A POP STAR FROM NEW YORK CITY NAMED BRIELLE. THE SONG WAS CALLED ROCK THE CATWALK, AND IT REQUIRED FOUR TO FIVE HIGH FASHION LOOKS FOR RUNWAY SCENES IN THE VIDEO.
