My Fashion Playing Cards Series is a body of work focusing on fashion illustration. Using pen and ink, gouache, and micron pens, I created these women who are mysterious, dark, and possess a lot of sex appeal. Fashion is interesting to me because you can create a fantasy world that one can escape to and I began to imagine these women being part of this non-existent place that we can aspire to be a part of or just enjoy looking at.
