Yipes Stripes, Sold


Apricots, grapes and stripes. I drew a lot of stripes when I was a fashion illustrator (lo these many years ago), and I love the way they can show the movement of the fabric. It establishes the folds with very little shading.

Wow! Those greens and teals are positively inspirational! I need to be more adventurous with my choices in fabric...

"Yipes Stripes" is so animated with the stripes - wonderful! And your stroking really aids in the effect too. My favorite.
