"Drawn To Couture" Francois Berthoud for V Magazine 83.

As previously mentioned, the new issue of V magazine is a bumper issue of illustration, with highlights from Ricardo Fumanal, Francois Berthoud and Jo Ratcliffe, amongst others.

Featured here is the super elusive Francois' six page editorial Drawn To Couture, which looks great in V's extra large format. Love or loathe the Miley Cyrus cover, this is an issue worth collecting.

New Talent: Fiongal Greenlaw

Last week menswear designer Fiongal Greenlaw showcased his Graduate MA collection for Royal College of Art's Menswear, a selection of brooding and dramatic tailored looks in exquisite proportions, and will no doubt go on to higher successes in the industry.

Fiongal however is also a skilled illustrator, and with this post I wanted to draw attention to his brilliant illustrative work. Included here are all featured graduate portfolio works, whilst there are more on his official site. His work is defined by his forlorn and hunched male characters, usually lug-eared and with foppish hair, often haloed with ornate patterns and sometimes sporting huge horns, suggesting mythological inspiration.
