One of my favourite things to doodle out are fashion illustrations.
I worked for two large designers in the city of Los Angeles about a year ago, and these littered my sketchbook. Originally inspired by Viet My Bui, I now have developed my own style, and this is such a fun, "let loose" exercise for me (and also a way to practice my anatomy, fabric, and stylization skills!)
