About Draw A Dot.

We all start out with just a dot, then we connect all the dots together to create a beautiful image.

In late 2009, I started an arts and fashion blog called à la mode. It was a hobby at first and to my surprise, it later turned into a hub for me to meet a lot of talented illustrators, photographer and designers around the world. In early 2011, luck knocked on my door and I became a contributor to Swide by Dolce & Gabbana online magazine for 3 years.

Throughout these years, I have worked with a lot of talented illustrators around the world and I think it is time for me to create a site just to focus on illustrations.

Draw A Dot is going to focus on 3 areas: fashion illustrations, surreal illustrations and characters designs. This site will serve as a platform to show some amazing illustrations I find on the web. Also, I will curate some interesting original illustration projects that will show the strengths of emerging illustrators.

If you are an emerging illustrator, feel free to email me and show me your works! Maybe some of your works will show up on this site in the near future!

To all fashion brands, feel free to email me for collaborations! I am ready to take on different challenges and curate cool fashion illustrations projects to suit your brand’s aesthetic!

Now my question for you is, what kind of image will you create with your dots?

A lot of illustrators not only submitted works to me for review, but some of them also created illustrations based on me. Below are the ones I have received so far! Amazing works!

  1. I have been following “draw a dot” and your blog for a while now, and I find myself constantly admiring your devotion to art. This website is one of a kind and you always feature outstanding illustration. Thank you for inspiring me and many other artists.

  2. Hello!
    I am a clothing designer, but in addition, I enjoy creating collections of fashion illustration. Here are a few of my illustrations. In my works I want to maximally reflect the image of the inner world of a person, or a person in a particular environment that wears clothes. They are reflections on the world in which I live. I do not give preference to a particular style, I try to reflect different moods, because we are constantly changing. Fashion can not be the same, it has many faces.
    thank you
