Vivid Fashion Illustrations in Pen by Janelle Burger

Janelle burger takes the vibrant qualities of marker pens and infuses them into her portraits and fashion illustrations to create simple yet dominating images.

The thickness of the lines she uses, the fevered movements of the shading, and confident colour choices all help to create a sense of strength in her work.

Janelle compliments these visually strong elements with finer areas of detail and pattern and a dynamic use of negative space.

As much as she manages to add boldness in her figures, Janelle also gives the large areas of pattern and colour room to breathe, inserting a needed sense of lightness and balance.

She tells us more about herself and her work below.

“I like to work across all sorts of themes from fashion illustrations, runway sketches, portraits and on trend sneakers to Japanese food.”

“I donʼt like to stick to one theme, I like to draw anything and everything that inspires me.”

“I like to think myself as a multidisciplinary artist. I mainly work with pencil, Copic markers, ink, gouache and acrylic paints on paper and of course I love to use Adobe Photoshop and illustrator to edit everything.”
