A self initiated illustration project, “What I Wore: October 2012”, chronicles my daily outfits for the month October.
Reaching back to my fashion blogging roots, I decided to challenge my dedication to illustration and fashion by creating quick 5 minute sketches of what I wore everyday for the course of a year. Each month I experimented using different media and styles. What started off as a fun routine has now become my own illustrated self-history of who I used to be, who I am now, and who I’ve yet to become.
In this month, I decided to portray my outfits as a weekly collaborative – trying to see the patterns of the week, the moods of particular days and how that affected my choices of clothing. This month was illustrated with a ballpoint pen and markers.
