A good fashion illustration should not only capture the vision of the designer, it should drive the essence of the times.Simon Ungless
For centuries nature and animals have been some of the most popular subjects in art, from landscapes to hunting scenes to pet portraits. Many artists find that creating a life-like texture in watercolor, especially when rendering animal fur, can be a difficult process to master.
One of the best things about fashion and the art of fashion is that you're free to design whatever you like—whatever it is that makes you you. You can be express your style with classic pieces, wild animal print, or mysterious, dark glasses.

Many children are drawn to art right from the start. I can remember both of my daughters being in awe the first time their chubby hands gripped a crayon and made scribbles on a blank sheet of paper. There was wonderment in their eyes when the first bright drops of paint from their paintbrushes dripped onto an empty canvas. Making art can be a joyful, soothing, and adventurous experience for children of all ages.
Would you consider art an optical illusion? I'm not sure I've ever thought of it that way. But in fact, what we see when we look at art is an illusion. What we're actually looking at is a canvas/paper that has been colored on by some medium to give the illusion of something else.
