I've been drawing since the age of 3 and haven't stopped since! It's like an addiction... I was always an artistic child and I haven't changed now I'm a young adult!What is your main inspiration?
My inspirations when I was young was Disney movies... I would draw the animated female characters over and over until I felt they looked perfect! I was obsessed with Jessica Rabbit too. She still is an influence on my work. When I hit my teens and realised fashion was the industry I was meant to be in. I started looking at designer brands, ad campaigns, fashion collections etc. I started coming up with my own designer collections via illustration. Designer brands like Versace, Michael Kors, Gucci and Jason Wu are all influences in my work as well as illustrator/designers such Robert Best who designs for high end Barbie.Your drawings are varied - from fashion designs to Bratz and Celebs - who or what is your favorite thing to draw?
Hmm, that's a tough question!! It depends on what I'm inspired by at the time. The fashion designs I come up with have become a permanent fixture/compulsory for me but the illustrations I do of celebs etc are more of what I would call my 'IT' illustrations. I don't do them very often, but when I do... They serve the purpose for the hype and are very fun to draw! Overall though, I couldn't choose a fave thing... All of the things I illustrate are fun to do!What are you doing at the moment?
I'm currently studying Fashion Product Innovation at Ravensbourne University. I'm studying Womenswear, Menswear, Promotion and more. It's a course that will prepare me for the industry i was born to be apart of! Other than studying and doing uni work, I always find time to do new illustrations and designs to keep things fresh!!And lastly what is your favorite out of your own work?
Another tough question... I have such a huge back catalogue of illustrations that it's hard to choose a personal fave! I don't think I could choose between my illustrations/designs...
Hope you have enjoyed Hayden's work!
