One of the things I love about being a fashion illustrator is unexpected, unusual gigs. This week and next, I’m going to be hanging out at the Microsoft Windows 8 booth at Toronto Pearson International Airport, fingerpainting on a touchscreen easel using Fresh Paint, the updated version of that classic program we all know and love, MS Paint.
Fresh Paint takes advantage of the touchscreen technology, you can use your finger to blend and swirl colours, similar to the way pastels or paint work, but without the mess. I’m looking forward to seeing what I can do with it – I’ll have enough time to create a fairly substantial body of work, and I’m planning on focusing on beauty and hair illustrations. I’ll post the best ones here next week.
Thanks to Microsoft for an opportunity to try something new and fun! If you’re flying in or out of Toronto and you see me, please say hey!
