Fashion Illustration: A Contemporary Look by Jennifer Lilya
Central Library, Foyer Gallery Cases
I find beauty in the human form and a sense of fun in the different personalities that go along with it. No landscape, no rainbow, no still life can compare to the beauty of the shape and line of a human body. Pair that with wearable art and it’s my favorite combination on the planet! When it comes down to it, I really just love drawing pretty pictures.
Jennifer Lilya graduated from the Fashion Institute of Technology with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in illustration. Her client list includes ELLE, WWD, Stila Cosmetics, Timex, American Airlines, and Dolce & Gabbana’s Swide. Lilya has also done costume concept illustrations for pop singer Katy Perry.
