Last week it was time for the Golden Globes and we were all ready for the glitz the glam and the gowns. But this year we saw a change, and that change was black. Wearing black was a powerful symbol of solidarity against sexual harassment within the industry.
Protest dressing is something that we have seen more and more of over the years and it seems to be a good tactic to engage the public with the influence that fashion and the people involved have over society today.
After seeing so many images of black gowns all over the media I decided that my influence for this weeks illustration would just be that colour, black. Black is a hard colour to sketch and paint with unless you show texture or interesting shapes and forms so I opted for a 2 piece with a sheer skirt and a feathered neckline on halter.
