Open House in Brighton next month. Jacqueline Bissett- fashion illustrator to exhibit life sketches

I am really proud to be supporting the YMCA Open House ( @YMCADLG) in Hove next month for Brighton's hugely successful May Festival. If you've ever wanted to purchase some art or just follow the Artist's Open House Trail- this is your perfect opportunity! This year I have decided to show my costume life drawings for the first time. As a fashion illustrator, you should always keep in touch with your life drawing skills and draw from a model where possible. It's not as easy as it looks and is a lifelong learning technique which never fails to excite me! Here will be a chance to purchase some of my original clothed life drawings in Pastel and Charcoal. All details are on the poster below...

Jacqueline Bissett to illustrate in Qatar next week!

I'm really excited to be working for http://www.vancleefarpels.com/eu/en.html for the third time in the Middle East. Their clients are always SO glamourous and modest and really enjoy sitting for their quick fashion sketch. Many of the ladies wear Hijab, the scarves that are beautifully wrapped and styled out, framing their strong features- they are always wonderfully inspiring to draw!

I have developed a pencil sketch style for Van Cleef & Arpels which I draw onto their paper which has been printed with their latest collection. This way the client gets a fashion portrait of themselves, wearing the uniquely designed jewellery to take home. I love visiting these exotic locations and have previously travelled to Bahrain and Kuwait for the same company.
