Chic on a Shoestring

This year I worked with milliner Mary Jane Baxter, illustrating her craft, fashion book. The book is about customising and accessorising your clothes without breaking the bank. Full of inspirational ideas on how to glamorise your wardrobe, it was a really fun project to work on with a great vintage, retro feel. There were lots of instructional illustrations to be done, but the chapter openers were the most enjoyable as I was given a free brief to create the illustrations I felt gave a feel for each chapter.
