Tobie Giddio inspires my illustrative eye, as her illustrations are free and innovative using a lot of colour and thick brush strokes. With her ideas she focuses more on the form of the garment than the facial features of the model, which I think, works really effectively with the thicker outline still allowing it to be part of the composition. I think I will start to experiment with the use of colours on photo shop and illustrator and scanning in watercolour markings and shapes and providing them with a professional finish on a digital media. I could also use collage and layer different wet media to gain that contrast in texture. She has been highly inspired by Alexander McQueen using similar structures in her illustrations as he does in his designs. Her work reminds me of the 60s era with optical illusion references and block colours in repetitive patterns providing a wide range of colours. She also incorporates nature into her design but makes them more apparent and defined with thick bold lines and blocks of colour.
