Korto Momolu Poster

I admit this may be the most excited I've been about a design job in awhile. I'm a massive Project Runway fan and think that Korto makes absolutely lovely clothes. So I had a wonderful time going through her work and looking at pictures of her and her own fashion choices to inform my design.

In the end, I wanted something that was bright, classy, and somehow suggested that flowy femininity that is always part of her clothing. Part of that came from the bold, graphic print that I used for the background (part of a scanned in scarf), and then I added a punch of color by adding bold patches of it to my illustration. The image of Korto was hand drawn by me, then scanned and LiveTraced in Illustrator, and I'm thrilled with the outcome. I know I'm tooting my own horn quite a bit, but I couldn't be happier with this one.
