On the street... Seventh Avenue, New York

November 11, 2011 8 Comments

A post in the style of the Sartorialist. I saw this girl on 7th ave the other day and thought her outfit was intriguing. The simple fact that she picked out and wore each of these things together and that she happened to walk past me and catch my eye is what makes the world go round for me. It's what I love about illustrating street style. My sketch gets to capture an outfit that will never happen again quite the same way anywhere else in the world. Its a moment in time that I get to keep simply because I noticed it. A beautiful thing, isn't it? ps. sorry for leaving out her other leg, you'll just have to imagine it

I think this has got to be one of my all time favorite sketches. You can practically feel the transparency and linen-like quality of the shawl- it has such a fleeting feeling about it. You think that it might just blow away- like the whole moment in general!

and it’s amazing to think that you captured a street style in this manner…i actually love that you left out the other leg..opens up readers to their imagination.
