Intern With Melsy's Illustrations

Melsy's Illustrations creates feminine and dainty hand-drawn fashion illustrations! Each piece of art is detail oriented and colored in with Copic Markers and/or high-end watercolors. Touches of glitter and other materials (such as sequins, pearls, Swarovski crystals, glitter, etc.) may also be added for perfect touches of detail. Melsy's artistic style focuses primarily on the hair and outfits of her illustrations. Rarely showing the face, her illustrations create a special bond between the consumer and her artwork. Because Melsy doesn't show the face of her illustrations they can be ANYONE, your best friend, sister, mom, co-worker, etc! These are perfect gifts for holidays, weddings, birthdays, expecting mommys, you name it! 

Clients include: Hallmark,  Reebok,  Bloomingdales, CHANEL, TJX Companies Inc., HANLEY NYC, and The Rockettes
