'Sportsgirl: Illustrator We Love'

Last week I was featured on the Sportsgirl blog as 'An illustrator We Love'!
I thought it was funny that when it went live I was wearing a Sportsgirl!
Shows how mutual the love is:)

'Best Western'

Exciting news! I'm having an exhibition in a week and a half! Eeeeek!
It's been a massive secret because it's in conjunction with Perth Fashion Festival, I had to wait till they released their (unbelievable) program where the event was listed before I could tell you guys, or anyone else for that matter! This year I am PFF's official illustrator which means I get an exhibition with them, attendance to all the shows and some other amazing opportunities that, you guessed it, I cant tell you yet!

For now I can give you a rundown on the exhibition and an image;)
" 'Best Western' is an exhibition by Fashion Illustrator Pippa McManus where she presents her interpretation of Perth Fashion Festival's 2012 campaign images.The illustrator exhibits 10 works in her signature style of sultry yet elegant women in bright pops of colour, rendered with soft charcoals, edgy splashes of spray paint and drippy acrylics. Face of the Festival Nicole Pollard comes to life on the canvas, with McManus paying homage to the great fashion design talent that comes from our State. McManus puts an artist's spin on the beautiful works of photographer Pierre Toussaint. All prints are exclusive editions of 3 and the original works will be for sale on the opening night."

'A is for Arizona'

My poor little under loved blog:( 
It's been all about my Facebook artist page lately! 
So I'll get everyone up to speed...I had an exhibition! "A is for Arizona" was an illustration exhibition featuring 'A-Z' of my favorite local and international runway and photographic models, some of them included Daga Ziober, Nimue Smit, Ruby-Jean Wilson and Zuzanna Bijoch. The exhibition opened on the 21st of June in the beautiful heritage buildings of 140 in the city. All works were 700mm x 1000mm and done in a mix of acrylic, charcoal, paint-pens and spray-paint on canvas. The amazing thing is that it was a sell out! The pieces went to some beautiful homes and I cant wait to see photos of where they live now:)
