Fashion Illustrations in Unexpected Places

Fashion Illustration in JCPenny CatalogueFashion illustration in advertising is nothing new, but I’m still always pleasantly surprised to see it used by mass retailers. Imagine my joy at finding a little painted sketch right on the cover of JCPenny’s newest catalogue. More of the stylized darlings were sprinkled throughout the pages.  I am a fashion illustration snob, so although I don’t think they’re the best drawings I’ve ever seen, I do loving finding fashion illustrations in unexpected places like greeting cards or at my local shopping mall, or in this case right in my mailbox!  Here are a few more drawings from the JCPenny Spring 2015 catalogue.
