ANIMATED ILLUSTRATIONS BY TARA DOUGANS

WALTER VAN BEIRENDONCK F/W 2012


Tara Dougans is a Canadian-born, London-based art director and illustrator. Focused on the value of ‘taking one’s time’, her early illustrative work is reflective of a preoccupation with the authenticity of a hand-drawn line. 
Here is her most recent project "Beware of a Man's Shadow" a collection of illustrated work featuring seven of this season's most playful menswear pieces. Originally concepted as an 'animated editorial', the project kicked off shortly after Paris Fashion Week Menswear in January. 
Inspired by the Burmese proverb 'beware of a man's shadow and a bee's sting', the idea was to juxtapose the subtle stoicism of menswear imagery with a cheeky animated wink. Having previously worked almost exclusive with pencil, the aim was to create a multisensory experience without losing the feel of handcraftsmanship.
If you look closely, you will notice a slight movement in each piece.
