Fashion illustration is one of the forms of illustration that has been out there forever but seems to blur into the background a bit. This is a shame because it’s one of the most creative and versatile styles in illustration.

My Dead Pony
Raphael Vicenzi,working under the name “my dead pony” is a self-taught illustrator living in Brussels,Belgium represented by Colagene .

Raphael’s work is published in magazines like Computer Arts, Advanced Photoshop, Rockpile, Idea Design as well as in books about contemporary illustration like Illusive 2, Zeixs Illustration and Fashion Wonderland.
