Last month, Sundance Channel launched their new Full Frontal Fashion website. The site features daily commentary from top fashion columnists such as Lynn Yaeger (former Style Editor at the Village Voice), exclusive photography from noted celebrity and fashion photographer, Patrick McMullan, and contributions from writers Aya Kanai (former Senior Fashion Editor at Teen Vogue and Fashion Director at Nylon).
Recently they featured a piece on blogger-favorite, Danny Roberts, the illustrator behind the blog Igor + André. Danny, who is just 24, has been making big waves in the fashion/art world lately. Recently, he collaborated with Gwen Stefani to provide ten pieces of artwork for her Fall 2009 Harajuku Lovers line, while London-based e-tailer Borders & Frontiers sells Roberts’ illustrated T-shirt, Girls in Glasses.
Full Frontal Fashion scored an interview with Danny where they discussed how he got his start in the art world, what mediums he uses, what music he listens to while drawing and more. Here’s an excerpt of the interview:
FFF: What do you love most about doing what you do?
DR: For me, drawing is really personal, meaning that I only draw things that truly interest me or things I really love. I try to pour myself into the picture. So what I love most about what I do is that I get to share everyday things that mean a lot to me with people all over the world.
Full Frontal Fashion were also lucky enough to score five exclusive illustrations inspired by last month’s New York Fashion Week Spring 2010 shows, including Donna Karan and Rodarte (below).
