illustration junkie

i have a fashion illustration addiction. i love that there are some very iconic fashion illustration artists, some, you see daily. you might recognize the illustration style, but have no idea of the artist's name. these are a few i've discovered over the years and have come to love.

nordstrom uses ruben toledo in much of their marketing collateral. does this look familiar ? the latest anniversary book has his black and white illustrations on the cover.

he's done a lot of illustrations over the years for nordstrom, and now they're framed and hung in the hallways of the corporate offices.

or what about these... mats gustafson uses simple watercolor silhouettes to render amazing feminine shapes. the first pale aqua used by tiffany&co. you can find more of mats work here.

italian artist simone legno is inpired by all things japanese, including the name he designs under 'tokidoki' which means 'sometimes'. his illustrations have become so sought after, he's started his own company selling products covered in his whimsical scenes. the toki-doki website carries amazing creations of everything from toys to cell phone covers to baby clothing.
