Alexa Chung ‘IT’ book and illustration inspiration


Inside the pink fabric cover, there are lots of doodles and photos with friends. There is a lot that is childlike about Alexa Chung, and this might be the reason why she is such a refreshing It Girl. In response to my own work , creating my book, I like the childlike sketches ( as researched previously with other illustrators). They’re quite simplistic linear etches which I like and can be seen as imperfect. The nature of the book gives of a fresh and edgy vibe, with a mix of illustrations on singular pages and amongst images.  I feel like the designs of her illustrations are quite modern and ‘cool’ which can work with my scene of creating a youth book.
