The project has finally come to an end and today, it’s time to show you the last batch of the runway sketches from the illustrators. This day was also the only day all 4 illustrators were at the tent. What a nice way to end this project!

One the 4th day of Toronto Fashion WeekLisa Nishimura was the only illustrator who attended the shows. I am sure if I were her, I would have a lot of pressure. She has attended 3 night shows and I am very impressed with the results. The sketches are actually a bit different than the one she did on Day 1 and I like this new style a lot! Here are the results.

If you have followed me on instagram, you might see a few interesting images about the Microsoft Surface tablet and I did give a hint that it would be part of an upcoming project for Draw A Dot.. Well today, I can finally reveal this amazing illustration!

This week is Toronto S/S 2014 Fashion Week and I have invited 4 Canadian fashion illustrators (Benjamin Edward, Ben Liu, Jocelyn Teng, and Lisa Nishimura) to take part on a fashion illustration project. Each day, this team will be using the Microsoft Surface tablet to sketch some of the runway shows with the program called Fresh Paint.

Today, I want to show you some of the best works from day 1.
