While searching for the work of another artist with the same agency, I found this colorful series Damien Cuypers created from New York Fashion Week. Peering into the seemingly untouchable realm of fashion is a guilty pleasure for me. I'm thrilled when an illustrator takes on fashion in their sketches, removing the brand, the label, the money, and the model. Drawn in crayon, Cuypers' choice of medium increases the feeling of simplicity in these drawings. Still, Cuypers maintains the beauty of the clothes, the person, and the setting. He's also wonderful at capturing a moment, whether on the runway, a posed shot on a city street, or a candid moment between fashion geniuses. I can see in my mind's eye the photographs of the same scenes, and only then do I realize how much I prefer the drawn interpretations. Seeing the pieces all together they offer a bounty of bright colors, and only when you think about it do you realize there is quite a lot of gray and black in these images. In doing this, Cuypers has represented both the fashion and the city, just by choosing the right crayon.
