Covent Garden Girls

Covent Garden Girls

Series of illustrations for the term project. These are drawings of the girls from a book about Covent Garden. I tried to capture the girls who go there and mix it with a style of this place. The illustrations were meant to look a bit old-fashioned and refer to the 60's advertising style. I was inspired by old-fashioned fashion illustration techniques. They give a very feminine look and subtle atmosphere. Each illustration promotes what every city girl enjoys and helps her go through the vivid, fast life - a coffee and chat on the go, a sweet treat of a cupcake and a piece of clothing from a luxury store.
The illustrations are purely made for the class project however, they could seperately exist as a illustration in any magazine for girls.
