Californian Danny Roberts, a 23-year-old artist and thinker, as he defines himself, signs the unique fashion-inspired illustrations, mostly done with fine tip pens on paper displayed on his personal blog igorandandre.blogspot.com. With a lively, whimsical style that takes you back to childhood’s enchanting tales, Danny draws what he loves: glossy magazine covers, doll-faced supermodels (Lily Cole, Gemma Ward), dream-like designer collections (his favorites being Alexander McQueen and John Galliano) and portraits of inspiring fashion bloggers.
While the name of his artistic brand “Igor+André” is a well-kept secret there’s no mystery on how he got into fashion illustration. A creative nature, he began drawing as a young child, started his own clothing company at the age of 13 and ran it till college where he first studied Photography but it wasn’t until he started Fashion Design studies at the Academy of Art in San Francisco, that he discovered he wanted to be an illustrator.
Danny’s artwork has been already featured in fashion publications around the world including Vision (China), Marie Claire online (Spain) or Dazed and Confused (UK), but his artistic goal is to draw a cover of Vogue, bringing back the old style of the illustrated 1920s magazine covers, an era he’s much inspired by. Until then you can acquire your own Danny Roberts original painting or fine art print from his Etsy art store and check on his latest creative projects by following his personal web pages.
