Series One of the Legendary Tastemakers series is out! (get them HERE!)

I've been wanting to do this series for a while - a celebration of some of the biggest icons, and the influcencers of my own style, taste and sensibility.

So what exactly is a tastemaker? Websters defines it as a person whose judgments about what is good, fashionable, etc., are accepted and followed by many other people, one who sets the standards of what is currently popular or fashionable. To me, it's also a person who shaped the way we view things.

Each pillow was designed by me, and digitally printed on cotton fabric. I found complementary patterns to back each pillow that I felt embodied the person's personal brand.

I had a long list of tastemakers that I wanted to draw, but I started with 6:

Anna Wintour

Iris Apfel

RuPaul

Little Edie Beale

David Bowie

John Waters

I will be posting about each icon, and what they mean to me over the upcoming week.

Have a tastemaker you are dying to see? Let me know! I'd love to make a second series in the future!

Enjoy!

Brian
