Fashion Illustration Bootcamp Part 2

Fashion Illustration Bootcamp (part 1) has been a very successful and enjoyable workshop, but left people asking me “What’s next?”. Bootcamp Part 2 was created specifically for this – when you’ve learned the fundamentals of fashion figures and dynamic marker pen technique, what is the next most important and useful thing to learn?

With a focus on textile rendering, this workshop explores mixed media including watercolours and ink, in addition to marker pens and coloured pencils, using these to render specific fabrics and textiles so your images become true fashion representations. You will learn techniques that you can apply to any fabrics and surfaces.

Additionally we will address one of the most-asked questions – How can I draw simple faces on my fashion figures? We will look at faces and stylization and apply them to our figures.

The Patsyfox Drawing Salon

Vendor since 2014

I’m a Melbourne-based designer and illustrator and have been working in the fashion industry since graduating from university in the late 80’s.

After years of travelling the world and designing for some of Australia’s favourite fashion brands, I saw the light and now make illustration – my first love – my number one.

Besides keeping up with, I mix freelance work with teaching fashion illustration and design at RMIT and in my own boutique classes at The Patsyfox Drawing Salon.  I have a line of Bridal Sketches, illustrating brides in their beautiful dresses by commission, and am currently illustrating for Elle magazine.

I am a gun for hire, whose work can be found in magazines, print advertisements, fashion websites, brochures, invitations, design storyboard presentations, books, trend forecasting, greeting cards, and stationery.


I design-draw-write-photograph, therefore I am.
