Hey Kim! I'm studying fashion design currently, but I would love to be able to draw better. I'm taking a bunch of figure drawing classes on drawing clothed figures, but we never really learn how to draw faces and portraits. I honestly love your effortless style, but I get frustrated easily when drawing faces. Can you please give me a quick tip on drawing faces? Like what is a good process to follow/ start with? What facial feature do you usually start with? Thanks so much xoxo to the moon
Try to bring sketch pads everywhere, I used to do that. It helps to draw as many faces as possible, I’m talking hundreds, or even 100 of the same face! I always start by drawing an almond shaped head base before drawing a face, now I can go straight to outlining the eyes, nose and mouth but starting I used to have to grid it out :)
Kim! Amazing job with the 2013 swim line. Not only is the line gorgeous, but you chose an amazing array of models. Each uniquely beautiful. Posted about the line on my blogspot if you'd like to check it out xoxo
You are just a gem!! Really sweet, and thank you for noticing. I did the best I could in the casting, agencies only have rail thin girls usually.
Hi Kim, i noticed throughtout following your blog for a while that you like to talk about memories and you are always reminiscing. Do you like nostalgia and does it make you happy? For me, I find myself hating nostalgia and it seriously makes me wanna puke, sad, and gives me anxiety. Lol xoxo
I am a very nostalgic person, I have based a whole clothing line off it!! But it took me a while to feel nostalgic of certain times in my life… it’s hard to move on from bad memories.
How would you decorate your dorm room? I need help! (Also what color bedding would you get? I love white and cream but everyone says those are a bad idea. I like bohemian yet slightly minimalist decor so maybe a deep red?) Thanks! x
If I had gone to college and lived in a dorm I think I would have made my dorm a safe haven away from the stress of school. Maybe I would turn it into a little forever fort, with tea lights, sheets, lots of inspiring books, and one framed photo from an artist I adored so I could stare at it and fall asleep. I think I would have big fluffy white duvets and sheets but then native American and floral throw blankets and pillows to make it feel like a cave in the canyons.
