One of the the appeals of drawing is it can be simply an enjoyable, tangible thing with immediate results. So I have this preoccupation with Japanese fashion magazines, and find myself basing many sketches off the images that stand out to me. Sometimes these will evolve into more refined drawings or paintings, or just remain the way they are.
I personally created the collage pattern that is on the purse graphic, as well as the leopard print pants. I handmade the original collage and created the pattern in Photoshop.The leopard print pants I first hand painted with acrylic for a more naturalistic feel, then scanned it in, and digitized it using Illustrator.
