The Coquettish Artist Becomes the Canvas in Her Latest Animated Short

“Illustrator, animator and fashion filmmaker Quentin Jones paints a daring self-portrait in an inky new film for NOWNESS. The London-based model and Cambridge philosophy graduate, whose mélange of hand-drawn and digital animations have appeared in fashion films for Vogue, AnOther and The Hunger, ditched the usual scripts, storyboards and wardrobe to star in a freewheeling two-tone romp. A personal project developed during scarce downtime between projects for Chanel, Victoria Beckham and Kenzo, Jones toyed with the idea of painting directly onto her subject, in this case herself, side-stepping the interruptions of shooting stop-motion.”

Lovin Santi’s New! Album 

“René Gruau (4 February 1909 – 31 March 2004) was a renowned fashion illustrator whose exaggerated portrayal of fashion design through painting has had a lasting effect on the fashion industry . Because of Gruau’s inherent skills and creativity, contributed to a change in the entire fashion industry through the new pictures that represented the already popular designs created by designers in the industry. The benefits, including economic stimulation and enhancement of advertising are still vividly presented in the industry today via a new way of fashion illustration, fashion photography.”
