Welcome to rachelsays... The blog of Rachel Lewis, containing my thoughts and musings on illustration, design, fashion, music, cakey-bakey goodness, culture and things that I generally find cool. There's also a good chance my own illustration work will pop up on here.

All work on this blog is copyright to me unless I state that it isn't. Obviously. Don't do stealing, kids.

So come on in, have a look around, and leave a comment if you like what you see.

What I wore today - outfit illustrations!

I follow quite a few fashion blogs (diamondcanopy and stylebubble are good) and the norm is to post photos of the awesome outfit you are rocking that day. It's a cool concept and something that I would probably do if I had the time, and also if I had the money to be shopping all the time. I had a massive splurge at the weekend and I'm poor again. When I'm getting paid lots I'll start buying all the things I covet.

I digress.

Gemma Correll who is a great illustrator has started the What I Wore Today group on Flickr and it's a brilliant idea - instead of taking photos of ourselves in our swanky get-ups for the day, us illustrators should draw what we wore instead. Simple, brilliant. Gets us to draw more as well.

I don't have a flickr account but I'm going to get one now so I can join this group. And I'm going to draw today's outfit tonight, even if I get home at 9, I'm going to do it. Because I haven't illustrated in weeks outside of my placement and that's baaad. And today's outfit is good as well.

Gemma's outfit.

If I organise myself I can start doing this on the train back from work every day. Nice.
