Curated.Works: Transcendence of a Rose – Part 1

Back in February when Draw A Dot. hosted the Alexander McQueen Savage Beauty illustration open call, I received a great submission from Maruka. Even though she didn’t make it to the top 9, I was very impressed by her illustration style so in this F/W season, I have decided to work on a Draw A Dot. WITH series with her.

For this mini series, we will be following the journey of a fairy and as a viewer, you will see 3 different brands involved. For the first part, we have all 3 fairies dressed in Alexander McQueen F/W 2015 collection.

Maruka‘s illustration style is unique because it has a retro anime vibe with a dark twist. In this illustration, the mood is very gloomy which truly reflects the aesthetic of the collection. I love the details on the rose dresses and the main fairy emits an elegant vibe.

Now let’s read what Maruka has to say about this first piece of the series.

“The fairies are depicted in gloom surrounded by a dim, ghostly atmosphere. It’s like the darkness has possessed them entirely. The main fairy, however, is moving forward- perhaps trying to find something new one day with a hopeful spirit. The mystery walks away with her as she is transitioning through the dark forest.”

Stay tuned as I will unveil the 2nd piece next month!
