Artist Love: Mats Gustafson

I am OBSESSED with these fashion illustrations by Mats Gustafson.
Gustafson began his career as an illustrator in the late 1970s, a time when editorial illustration was eclipsed by photography, and watercolor as a conceptual medium had barely been explored. His illustrations have been featured in publications such as French and Italian Vogue and The New Yorker, and he's created advertising art for Herm├Ęs and Tiffany & Co.

Aren't they completely drool-worthy? His work is minimalistic, but elegant and he really knows how to capture the essence of fashion. Just another lovely piece to add to my future art collection...
