Sketchbook Show and Tell #10: Fashion

For a split second back in the late 90's, I wanted to become a fashion designer (specifically a men's fashion designer). But the more I learned about the fashion industry, the more I knew it wasn't for me. Below are a few sketches I made during that brief period of time when I was aspiring to be the next great trendsetter. Looking back on these images, I can see that I made the right choice. I still have an interest in fine men's tailoring. Actually, as I've grown older, I find myself more impressed and curious about the craft of making a well-fitted bespoke suit; the kind that emerge from the shops on Savile Row.

Fish Tacos and Chips: Saddles and Stripes

There's a zebra who was skillfully taught,
How to make a great stallion trot;
His long black stripes straddle a thick leather saddle,
And he gives its rear end a swat.

There was once a shallow young pug,
Strutting around acting all smug,
She had fat on her hips, transferred to her lips,
and make-up tattooed on her mug.
