Masaki Mizuno

I am in LOVE with Masaki Mizuno's work.  Utilizing pencil and gauche techniques, Mizuno is heroically saving a dying art--Fashion Illustration.  With the technology age moving swiftly along, CAD (computer aided design) has made it possible to create fashion at a faster, more reliable, and more economical rate.  When was the last time you saw an actual fashion illustration on the front cover of Vogue?  Just something to think about.
 Mizuno on his technique:All my work is analogue, hand painted with acrylic, air-brush, and rollers. It is true that using digital would be a logical way to illustrate the new textiles and materials that are created every year; however I think that there is a genuine charm about analogue art that can never be replaced by digital technology.
AMEN TO THAT.
