London based, Nuno is a self taught illustrator and he’s the person behind these glamorous fashion illustrations. His name may not ring a bell to many and that includes myself but his portfolio is quite impressive. His list of clients consist of Clinque, jewellery designer Kirt Holmes, fashion designer Melissa Odabash, and to name a few. He has also been employed as the fashion illustrator for Melissa Odabash’s Ready To Wear S/S 2010 collection, and appeared on publications such as Marie Claire, The Daily Telegraph, and Wonderland.
At first i wondered how such beautiful illustrations were created and when i found out how, i could not believe it! His illustrations are created in the simplest of ways, where he hand draws his work with water colors and Gouache (water paint). Then they go through a cycle of being scanned, retouched and painted on Photoshop. Sounds pretty simple but i say his work is far from being just simple! It definitely requires some talent and an eye for fashion:)
