I've been a busy bee! (I sure say that a lot, don't I? haha) I am so excited to coauthor my first published book The Art of Fashion Tangling, to be released by the prestigious Walter Foster Publishing. It's been a dream of mine to be apart of a project like this! One of my favorite humans and local artists, Monica Moody, is a fellow coauthor, which makes this experience even more special.
The Art of Fashion Tangling is the perfect resource to provide hours of fashion fun and endless tangling creativity.
Combining the popular tangling art form with the world of fashion, The Art of Fashion Tangling takes readers on an inspirational, imaginative drawing journey. The free-flowing and detailed patterns inherent in this infectious art style meld perfectly with the fun and flexibility of fashion illustration. Beginning with an overview on tangling and a brief introduction to basic tools and materials and techniques and embellishments, readers will embark on a creative journey through a variety of prompts, patterns, and projects to turn innovative tangles into fascinating fashion looks and accessories. From dresses, jackets, and shoes to umbrellas, glasses, and funky hairstyles, tangling fashionistas will find a plethora of fashion-forward subject matter to doodle and embellish. With open practice pages throughout and a variety of reproducible templates at the back of the book, The Art of Fashion Tangling is the perfect resource to provide hours of fashion tangling fun and endless creativity.
