Portfolio Review: Illustrator Kelsey Dake Shares Her Favorite Drawings and Design Projects

Purse Lady

"I love purse lady. I really really like fashion, like, a lot. It's funny because I am kind of known for drawing gross or gory things (a lot of people assume I'm a dude?), but in real life I get my nails done every other week, tote a Louis V, and had a Vogue subscription growing up. So I FINALLY got asked to draw something girly and fashion forward, it was really exciting. I got to draw this pretty naked girl covered in purses that I got to make up and design. It was a wonderful assignment. I drew her almost lifesize too, the drawing is 5 feet tall, and got to agonize over all of these purses. It was rad and shows a side of my interests that I don't normally get to show in my work."
