Though there are people in these Jenny Mortsell illustrations, they are definitely not the subjects of their respective images. Who can honestly say his or her focus is drawn to the faces and bodies of the models when the apparel in these images are so infinitely more interesting to look at? Their colors, their textures, their shape, the clothing in Mortsell’s creations are the stars of the show and she renders them beautifully in a highly realistic manner. Viewers will often forget they’re looking at illustrations as their minds wonder into "Where can I buy that cardigan?" territory.

Jenny Mortsell is a premier fashion illustrator whose client list includes big names like Urban Outfitters. She’s currently based in New York City, granting her easy access to the latest fashion garments, which she’ll no doubt incorporate into her stunning pencil illustrations.
