Samuel Harrison (@samuelharrisonart) loves the theatrical nature of fashion. “For me it’s all a way of expressing something or capturing an essence, an attitude,” the 21-year-old fashion illustrator, who lives in London, says. “I particularly like capturing shape and weight in an illustration through shading.” His most important piece of advice: “Take your time and be patient when creating a gradient.” Samuel regularly shares his process and treats it as an opportunity for growth. “I often look back at my own process videos or photos and think that I should have done things differently. But that’s fine, it’s just a learning experience for your next piece.”
