I’ve been pouring through my old sketchbooks this week… And boy are they amusing! Some of the things I drew and wrote are just…weird.

Do you ever look back at things you wrote and think… Wow, did I really write that?! That’s how I felt looking at about 70% of my sketchbooks. Yikes!

These two ladies were Illustrated while I was studying in Florence, Italy back in 2007. That was when I really started getting into fashion illustration. I love how loose and gesture-like they are…

Which do you prefer, my current style or this style?

    I sometimes avoid reading past things as it makes me cringe haha!

    I love both of your styles to be honest but then I love pretty much all styles of fashion illustration!

    Hello Katie.
    This drawing looks very creative, but I have to say I think that your current illustrations have more feeling!
    But the best thing, definitely, is just to see how much your style has evolved!
    King regards! :)

    don’t get me wrong. I LOVE these. But your current style is much more “lovely”. And unique. These actually remind me quite a bit of how I used to sketch figures!

    Katie I love the looseness of these illustrations as well, but I must say, you’re current style is SO unique. I have seen your work on Pinterest many times and known before seeing your name that it was a Paperfashion illustration! I love the way you illustrate…love love love

  12. I love these! Although I think your current style is more detailed and professional! (;
