Our featured Fashion Illustrator is young and super ultra talented MELANIE BOYCHUK who is based in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. She is self taught and after seeing all the work she has accomplished, she truly amazes me. I love how she explores the use of many different tools to add the final touches to her illustrations.

Her style is primarily the use of traditional media, such as pencil, watercolor, and charcoal. She also illustrates and adds the mix media of origami paper, scrap booking paper, and recently, paper ephemera to create a vintage look.  She also uses Photoshop but only uses it to adjust brightness and contrast, and sometimes to tweak the image slightly.  

She is inspired by many things, but first and foremost fashion magazines where she finds a lot of her inspirations to do the illustrations.

You'll have to check out her websitemissmel.com. She was also recently featured on The Style Line, a Tumblr blog that is ranked as one of the top highly-esteemed publication. You can learn more about Melanie on her Q&A interview with the founder of The Style Line.

If you need a Fashion Illustrator for future projects, you can find her on FV's directory.
