This month Vogue Japan asked regular contributor Jacqueline, to illustrate an article on bone education in the form of exercises and dietary suggestions for keeping them healthy. With focus on the pelvis and spine, the illustrations brightened a serious topic for overall well being for the body.
I’ve been with illustration ltd for over 10 years and in this time I’ve seen my workload grow. The variety of commissions that the lovely team bring in from all over the world, is really exciting. I’ve had jobs that have taken me to LA, Qatar, Bahrain, St. Moritz and Paris many times. During last week my illustrations ‘took over’ illustrationweb’s Instagram page and they featured me on Twitter and Facebook.
Below is my ‘Scrapbook’ which includes Q&A’s and a downloadable poster
I have 2 portfolios featured with illustration Ltd- one for my general commissions and another for my live event work which has become really popular in the past 10 years, not just with me but many other fashion illustrators. Illustration ltd have offices in London, Paris, Hamburg, New York, Mumbai, Shanghai, Singapore and Sydney

I was recently commissioned by the luxury travel brand Four Seasons to illustrate in the Fashion issue of their third issue. Articles to illustrate included a fascinating read by SC Stuart showing the impact of Artificial Intelligence on fashion design and where the future is taking us, by keeping a track and logging information on existing designs/trends. The next feature by Amanda Mull was on catwalk representation of women of many physical abilities and sizes. Finally I was asked to give my opinion on present fashion trends and for my take on reinvented designs from leading brands’ archives. I decided to work digitally on the iPad Pro, which is still a lesser area of my work, the suitability for the articles seemed most relevant. It’s always good to have some editorial work as a freelance illustrator as this is still our best showcase, seeing one’s work in print.
Had a lovely commission nearly 2 years ago to illustrate the cover for this book, it was then shelved for a year and when it returned, the cover was changed slightly and internal illustrations were added to each chapter. It's a really fun, playful read of Mohammadi's relocation to Florence and an insightful journey into this new world after a busy career, writing in London.
Another creative commission from last month came from Yu Soga at Vogue Japan. I was asked to create loose watercolours inspired by keywords such as 'Concentration','Share', 'BrushUp'& 'Master'. The promotion was for Pola, a luxury anti-aging skincare range, featured a month over the Xmas/ New Year period on Twitter and other networks.
The article was specifically on healthiness and exercises for the promotion of strong bones. Commissioned by Kyoko Takahashi, Jacqueline was asked to supply 13 illustrations of various exercises and body parts in pale colours for a soft, subtle feel. Her paint splatters were used extensively throughout the Health section of the July issue.
