Here is my 'Marylin' look-a-like image, which started out as a photograph mof myself, then altered on photoshop nd printed out on A4.
Using black ink i drew back into the image, and 'coloured' it in on photoshop.
Sticking to the beauty subject, i used Christina Aguilera lyrics for the fist piece, and i looked up the meaning of the word for the second image.
The backgrounds are made up of a drawing of the dog tooth pattern, from earlier on in my sketchbook.
These images are all made using my own original work and drawings.

The work has developed now from the initial photographs, to video, now into illustration.
Still asking the question "What is beautiful?".
With my supplies (acetate, marker pens and paper) i have created quite alot of work
in the last week, here are the results.
Using a different image, i used my favourite tool, photoshop to erase most of the image,
just leaving a very faint outline for me to draw back into,
and here's what came next.

So, for this photoshoot i wanted to portray the future, in a tacky, silly sort of way.
Lots of silver, white, large dark eyebrows which i've seen on the catwalk and clean lines.
Finding inspiration from Hussein Chalayan (see previous posts), Swan Lake,
Lady Gaga, the list goes on!
This shoot consisted of:
White, gold, bronze and grey eyeshadows
Black liquid eyeliner
Dark brown eyebrow powder
Fake feather lashes
A variety of pens
and some Letter Stamps
This was my starting point, a tin foil hat...
Moving on, having the foil as a part of my hair....
Next I decided to change the foil into a fringe/visor..
I used masking tape to cover my mouth next, which meant i could still allow the pink lip to be seen...
The following stage amounted to me 'upping the ante', increasing the amount of make-up...
I tried some gold glitter NAIL VARNISH on my LIPS next!!
DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME!
Lashes were the next logical thing on the adgenda...
Finishing up with a variety of different mouths...
Thank you for viewing :)
Asking the question: What Is Beautiful?
I have decided to make myself into a variety of stereotypical women from society, into what i believe the future holds...
Keep an eye out for my other photo shoots coming soon!!

After having a tutorial I feel like im back on track with my true self, the illustrations that I have been doing recently are too serious, and not really portraying me and my thoughts/opinions on fashion.
YouTube has become a really quick, easy and very efficent way for me to research, with just a few key words, I am able to find what i want.
So, an idea that I'm going to start looking at today is fashion for older women, whether it's keeping up with current trends, or living as a blast from the past.

I found this image on google and loved the style, the silver, the shapes, and anything else starting with the letter S!
After finding this photo, i then came across the video which it has come from.
This is a catwalk video, showcasing the clothes of Turkish/ British Fashion Designer, Hussein Chalayan.

Using the acetate that i originally drew onto from fashion images out of magazines,( found: Next advert and Star magazine), i have now added a splash of colour, with nail polish.
Typography plays a big part in advertising as well as the product, so i added the word 'living', using the front of an Argos catologue, just to test out how lettering fits into the image.
