Illustration Preview fr: RSX Clothing's Fashion Show

(c) reubenvision

Above is two lovely ladies from Made You Blush & Asa from RSX Clothing. I did some fast portrait work of the guests & models at the Launch party & Fashion Show at RSX Denim. Alley parties are where its' at & this one was no exception. I will be posting more work from the show later this week. Stop in to Robert Simmonds & flip through the drawings on the easel and check out the sweet threads on the racks. 

The Summer That Flew By

Over night ferry rides, to other provinces. 

Cliff jumping in the summer heat.

Flowers, of course lots of flowers. You can always see more on my other blog:

A one week camp councelor position in Halifax. (safety first children)

Weddings, lots and lots of weddings. 

... and lots more cliff jumping.

Lets Talk: Floral Print

Whether you are raiding the racks at Barney's or going through the two for $4 bin at your local thrift store, you are sure to find florals and fauna motifs galore. Done well a print can look totally chic in any scenario. I am a huge flower fan in general & must admit to having a weakness for it in clothing. 
Here is a little glimpse of just some of the floral inspiration I have been collecting.

Here in haute couture.

A simple and great choice for Fashion Week.

It does not always need to be loud or colourful. Embroidered lace on this Erdem coat looks very timeless. 

I would wear this look from Givenchy every second day all summer long if I could (bleached brows included)

& last but not least an art inspired dress from Stella McCartney.

Using driftwood that collects along the banks leading up to the Hydro dam.

Drawing From Observation

These are just three drawing that I completed in  my drawing class this year. I am working on building my portfolio & going through all of my stuff. I am not sure if these will make it in, but I thought I would share.

weekend links 2

this dreamy number was spotted over at:
How cool are hellebores?

I spotted this impressive outfit on my pinterest & thought I would share.

Now McKenzie Powellhas quite the knack for flowers & her studio is drool worthy (I do not lie!) Go stop by her blog you are in for a treat:  www.mckenziepowell/blog

Now this nifty bonsai tree is really like no other I have seen before. How cool would it be to have this puppy in your living room?

That concludes my list for today. Hopefully it will be enough to unsettle the dust that has been collecting on this blog. I have been busy with work & school ... you know the rest.

Dirty Glasses

image: reubenvision(c)

Self portraits are not my favorite things. If I thought I was that interesting to look at you would have seen a photo of me on here earlier. This is the final result of a project for my creative process class where we had to do a variation on a theme. My glasses are just a little over a year old & already they have become an integral part of my identity. Before 2011 I was never the blonde boy with glasses. It is a love hate relationship; & if I had a dollar for every time I got a finger print on them I would not need my new job as a waiter. (well that is all the update on my life that is necessary)

Romantic Flowers in time for Valentines

(& yes that is Measha Brueggergosman)
these flowers just got fancier 

So this past weekend I had the joy of creating some moody romantic flowers for a intimate concert performed by none other then Measha Brueggergosman. If you don't know her or her gorgeous voice, let google introduce you. Curly willow, driftwood, seeded eucalyptus, and little leaves I made from vintage sheet music, complemented a variety of different blooms. Check out more my "flower" blog for more photos.

Fashion Design Illustration

This is a look I sketched by hand & then coloured on my computer. A print skirt worn with a coat, opaque tights and black heals. I may try to flesh out a whole collection based around the inspiration I was using for this look.

Pin for the Win






Just thought I would share a few things I have been finding on Pinterest in the last little while. 
Stella seems to have a pension for florals & I am not complaining.
I might not wear the gloves but the rest of this look from Burberry is working for me. 
If you are not yet a fan of green a word of caution; that dress will seduce you.  
Carven is bringing some intense pattern to the table & people are eating it up.
The last one is to over indulge in your eye candy sensory. 
Happy Weekend!

Winter Breeze :illustration submission

illustration: reubenvision

This is a submission for a "zine" being published for a local music festival. The general unofficial theme is surviving the cold weather of winter. I decided to play with the idea of a warm winter sweater & a cool icy breeze. I submitted it a little late but hope it will still be included.
(please full view for better effect)

A glimpse into my sketchbook

illustrations: reubenvision

Photos of recent pages in my sketchbook. Mind you this is not an entirely balanced representation. I dont often use flame when creating; this was for an assignment that required an element of spontaneity or lack of control. Enter a lighter & some pages from my old binder. I overlaid several pages to get the desired look & then added some illustrations around the one on the left.
