Courtney Howlett is a fashion illustrator I met through IFB. The only other fashion illustrator I know of is Garance Dore and her work is very pretty and fun but Howlett's is just jaw-dropping. I love the fact that the fashion aspect is treated as a point of inspiration rather than the point of focus. The emphasis is on the use of colour and lines.
I really like the effective use of negative space and the minimal feel of the work. It's incredibly elegant, beautiful and - I've never used this word to describe an artwork before - very, very chic.
He's currently trying to establish himself as an artist and I'm glad I found his work. It's really exciting to discover new and establishing artists. Please support his work and follow his tumblr, deviantart and twitter.
