Valentino Open Call – CLOSED and the winner is…

There was an open call by DrawADot and it has just ended not so long ago. It was about Valentino’s MIME bag collection and I chose a beautiful red one:

Valentino-Mine-Bag-Collection

I was so inspired by the theme of the open call and of course by the bags, therefore, I have made two illustrations but only one I could submit.

So here it is:

Valentino MIME - DrawADot - Yoyo Miyoko

About my artwork a little bit:

Size: A/4

Materials: watercolour on acrylic paper (yes, on acrylic paper, and it is not bad at all)

Watercolour is from Daler Rowney / you can get exactly the same set, what I have, from Amazon (cheaper then I have bought 3 years ago) I am totally satisfied with the paints and as I said, I have them for 3 years already… and I only run out of black and blue this month! and I am painting a lot!! so I think it is a great deal : ) / you can check it now by clicking on this link:

Illustration of Fendi Spring 2015

Fendi’s new spring collection is just amazing, elegant and playful at the same time. Yesterday I have started to make an illustration of a bag, jacket and trousers.

I use acrylic on a 30x40cm canvas. The orchid print reminded me of jungles, monkeys, colourful nature…

Here are some pictures of the process and the original photograph:

Portrait of Iggy Azalea – Newest project, personal work

So here is my newest project: painting a portrait of Iggy Azalea.

I use acrylic paints by Daler-Rowney, brushes from DaVinci on a 60cmx60cm canvas.

Yesterday (22/03/2015) I was looking for inspirations to paint one of my old canvases. That canvas already had a base with lots of warm colours, which inspired me more and…and then I found Iggy.

I will post a picture of the whole painting on the 25th of March here on my blog and on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. <— click

Until that time I post details of the painting everyday:
