SPOILER ALERT: I write about which designer won season 11 of Project Runway, so if you haven't watched the finale, you've been warned.
While I seem to be forever attired in T-shirts and khakis (and sometimes Gramiccis) I have to admit that I really enjoy watching "Project Runway" to see what people come up with in a limited time frame. (Sometimes the contestants annoy me, but this season [11th] which just wrapped up last week didn't seem as bad.)
Michelle won and I have to say, if I didn't have a "uniform" I would wear clothes that she makes—I loved them all. But then I would just wear them forever even after they went out of fashion, which doesn't matter to me. I enjoyed her clothing vibe. In fact she made a pair of pants and a top one week that I could wear in different colors everyday of my life. I'm glad she won. I hope she has some success. (If you click on the link I made to her name you'll see an overview of her clothing in a short video and at 1 min. and 53 seconds or so you'll see the top and pants I could wear every day.)
While Stanley didn't win he was the designer who was the most fun to sketch. So today here are two sketches of Stanley, and then a page of gesture sketches.
Left: A Pentel Pocket Brush Pen sketch on sumi paper, with a background added with a Montana acrylic marker (15 mm wide nib). Also 8.5 x 11 inches. The moisture from the marker warped the paper, hence the wrinkles when I scanned it.
When sketching both versions of Stanley I actually stopped the program on the DVR. When I was working on the page of gestures I let the program run and tried to carry details in my memory.
Left: Designers on Project Runway season 11. Top Left—Michelle who actually won the season. These gesture sketches were made after quick looks, relying on my memory.
