Local fashion industry artist Pete Rich launches his debut book My Fashion Sketchpad, a great companion for illustrators who want to sharpen their sketching skills, as well as for anyone who simply wants to draw.
My Fashion Sketchpad is the first of its kind locally. It is a chic and timeless fashion illustration manual that features easy-to-follow instructions on how to draw portraits that never go out of style. Pete Rich encourages fashion industry hopefuls and casual hobbyists alike to create art using basic drawing tools and their most important asset: their unique perspectives.
Fashion aficionados and budding creatives alike will learn the art of drawing gorgeous faces and develop their original designs on dynamic mannequin silhouettes while having fun mixing and matching clothes and accessories to create the outfit of their dreams.
The launch includes interactive #SketchWithMe session where Pete himself teaches how to sketch chic looks and pieces from head to toe using his easy-to-follow book and freebies from Zig Philippines.
“Pete’s fashion illustrations are simple and eye-catching. In this book, he breaks down his personal process and helps eliminate the intimidating aspects of drawing.” –Bianca Gonzales-Intal, host, writer, advocate
Pete Rich’s works have appeared across different media platforms. His first big break was illustrating celebrity stylist Liz Uy for the cover of her hit book StyLIZed. This was followed by an opportunity to illustrate for TV host Bianca Gonzalez-Intal’s bestselling book Paano Ba ‘To? and one of 2016’s trending books, Team Real: Your All-Access Pass Into James Reid and Nadine Lustre’s World. Since then, Pete has been a go-to illustrator of magazines and newspapers, as well as legacy brands such as Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Tommy Hilfiger, Jimmy Choo, Michael Kors, Tory Burch, Longchamp, Cartier, and Aerin.
