ELLE-DIgital-cover-Paloma-FINAL Web

Illustration for Elle India’s Special covers celebrating their 250th Issue

The project came through Kulture Shop with an open brief and a tight deadline.

Based on the simplicity of the supplied cover photography, I wanted to emphasise that using bold lines, the repeating the pattern of the star under Paloma’s eye and a limited colour palette reflecting the colours in the photo.

Played around with thick and thin line work previously here as well as with repeating pattern motifs and portraits and wanted to explore using that in a photo-collage.

The final project was shared by Elle digitally via their social media platforms.
