We are really digging illustrations by Julie Massy today. Being an illustrator, Massy creates sharp and intricate line work within her pieces. Her faintly colored illustrations have similar qualities to photogravures, with the extra grain, tainted backgrounds, and washy shades of black. Massy’s work is focused on portraits that carry graceful, audacious, and whimsy moods. Below are some of our favorite compositions done by Massy. Make sure you check out her website to see more of her work.

Howard Tangye, Austrian-born fashion designer and illustrator has really caught our eyes. His fashion illustrations provide an interesting and unusual perspective amongst other illustrators. The contorted lines and twisted perspectives of the figures make Tangye’s work reminiscent of Egon Schiele, but with a larger emphasis on fashion. Despite the extremely thoughtful placement of color, Tangye’s ranging lines and colors seems very intuitive to him. Tangye’s use of flowing gestural outlines with sparingly pops of color create dynamic positive and negative forms. His figures convey believable and connecting emotion through their facial expressions and body language, deriving full attention from the viewers.

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!
