Angelinas

I had a project to do a beautiful fashion sketch for A Pea in the Pod, the designer maternity label, in 2006.  The object was to depict Angelina Jolie in a A Pea in the Pod gown during her first pregnancy and the illustration was intended for WWD (Women’s Wear Daily, aka the fashion newspaper Bible).  I won’t be showing the final sketches done for Pea, since they own them, but during the process of creating it, I really wanted to depict Jolie’s face with a lot of accuracy.  So, I did a series of sketches of her from found images, and had a lot of fun in the process.

 

The first did not come out perfect, but I expected that.

After working a little, I really loved the sketchiness of this illustration.  It really looked like Jolie, but maintained a stylistic approach.

After producing this much more photo-realistic illustration, I felt ready to tackle the real deal.
