For the past few months, I had been looking for a fashion illustrator with a fun whimsical illustration style. The search is finally over, and Mel Macklin‘s works are exactly what I am looking for!
The Caucus Chase
These digital illustrations are all inspired by outfits from different fashion brands, but with the artist’s own twist. Because Mel is inspired by the photos shot by Paolo Roversi and Tim Walker, therefore it is not hard to see her works are whimsical, playful and will immediately remind you of fairy tales (actually some of girls are based on fairy tale characters). These illustrations are definitely something you will want to hang on your wall if you are into fairy tales!
Mel is for sure an illustrator I would want to collaborate with in the near future, and I would love to see her working on some illustrations based on some of the outfits from this season!
