I’ve taken a bit of a hiatus from “marisaland” as, in addition to my makeup and color work, I also have design and research projects so it’s been a bit hectic. However, I recently picked up an out-of-print copy of “Fashion Illustration in New York” by Pater Sato from 1985 and I immediately had to share. I’ve always had a passion for this art form and this collection, from a time when illustrations were used in advertising just as much as models, is a true gem. The image above by Mats Gustavson is one of my favorites, not only because I’m fond of red and purple as a color combination, but the black background has me totally captivated. Of course, being the makeup junkie I am, I’m also completely smitten with these colorful beauty illustrations.
