Mixing real models with animations and illustration is the hottest trick in fashion editorials and ad campaigns these days.

The technique is perfectly utilized in this editorial “Practice Makes Perfect!” from the recent Fall/Winter 2008-09 issue of Commons & Sense magazine.

Photographer Damien Blottiere captured male model Cole Mohr, who was styled by Yoko Miyake with a captivating backdrop of illustrations by Jeanne Detallante.

Implications - The 'Practice Makes Perfect' Commons & Sense editorial spread is truly scary. With a father-figure teacher, the student is depicted as slowly cracking under pressure. The illustrative element of dreary colors creates an overall eerie effect that makes the 'Practice Makes Perfect' spread even more harrowing.
