Part 3 of the interview...
A couple of weeks ago, when I was thinking about the various ways I have used my artistic talent to remain employed as an artist, I decided to see if any other fashion illustrators had gone into fine arts. In doing so, I stumbled upon a blog called, Art Fashion Creation. The blogger had asked a few times about sewing pattern illustrators in a couple of her posts. Since I had done pattern illustrations back in the seventies, I left a comment. This, in turned, inspired the blogger to contact me, and her 3 Part article about my illustration days are from a series of "interview questions" via email.
She needed pictures of my old work , so I poured through tons of old illustrations that I had tucked away for 40 years or so (yes, I am a pack rat), and I enjoyed seeing how the style of drawing depends on purpose, as well as audience. You can read the interview. Here is a link to Part 3. http://artfashioncreation.blogspot.com/2013/03/karen-winslow-interview-sewing-pattern.html
