Artist Profile: Laura Laine

One of my favorite contemporary illustrators is the Finnish-born Laura Laine. Her highly detailed and highly stylized fashion illustrations have been featured in numerous publications including Vogue, Elle, Telegraph, The New York Times T magazine. She has also illustrated the ad campaigns for the GAP, H&M, Zara,  and Tommy Hilfiger, among others.

I see many similarities between Laine's illustration style with that of the 20th century French artist and designer, Erté. Like Laine, Erté's work has been featured in magazines like Harper's Bazaar as well as fashion and travel ad campaigns in the 1920s and 30s. 

The Daily Drop Cap "O". Lovely.
