The Cheetah

Here is the illustration for this week a proud and beautiful Cheetah! Cheetahs are animals of extreme beauty and of course speed – they are the fastest animals on land, so I have read recently – but unfortunately also an endangered species. If you like big cats please contribute here:

Fashion Take On Streets

I have been reading a lot about Fashion Week and seen so many photos especially on Instagram – Inspired by all this I have come up with some urban fashion piece instead with some dreamy effects, act and dance style, placed outdoors in some random place and street. Was great fun playing around with this!
