While pinning yesterday, we came across these whimsical fashion illustrations by Stephen Campbell(rep’d by one of our faves, The Art Department.) Mr. Campbell is an illustrator who creates his drawings in Illustrator using a mouse only, and then embroiders them onto different fabrics with various colored thread.

The color combinations and quirky line quality breathes a humorous life into portraits or every day things like converse sneakers or an ampersand. It reminds me of the contour drawing assignments we used to have in art school, where you were asked to draw an object using only one line without looking.
