A new fun format for Quarry's best-selling 20 Ways to Draw a Dress and 44 Other Fabulous Fashions and Accessories, this cute chunky volume features 500 inspirational illustrations in a perfect small size for drawing on the go!
From dresses, gloves, and sunglasses to flats, belts, and swimsuits, Draw 500 Fabulous Fashions is perfect for illustrators, cartoonists, doodlers, and anyone who loves to sketch. This is not a step-by-step technique book--rather, the fashions in this volume are simplified, modernized and reduced to the most basic elements, offering simple abstract shapes and forms that meld to create the building blocks of any item (man-made or organic) that you want to draw. This all-in-one pocket-sized sketchbook lets you draw right on the pages making it easy to keep all of your most inspired creations at hand.
Julia Kuo grew up in Los Angeles and studied illustration and marketing at Washington University in St. Louis, where she has also taught illustration. (Most of this book was completed right by the lovely Forest Park in St. Louis.) Julia currently lives in and works out of Chicago for most of the year and Taiwan in the winter. She illustrates children's books as well as editorial pieces for newspapers and magazines. Her clients include ScienceFriday.com, the New York Times, Hachette Books, Simon & Schuster, and Macmillan Publishers. Her illustrations have been honored in American Illustration, CMYK magazine, and Creative Quarterly. When she's not drawing, you might find her running around in a national park and looking at moss.
