Hello followers! Happy New Year! We hope everyone has been enjoying 2014 so far!
2014 is the year of Lilith et Adalia! In a little over a months time we will begin to have product up for sale on Etsy! Currently we have about 8 of our 12 first release dresses near their completion. We also have accessories in the works, and another project in the hopper as well (If you follow us on Tumblr, maybe you have an idea of our next ambition?)
It has been busy but we have so much planned! We hope you have been following our progression on all our social media outlets!
Today, we'd like to share with you all the other side of our creativity. Before we are designers, we are artists. All the members of the current Lilith et Adalia team grew their creative skills from our youth. We went to school for art and design, and lead our career lives along the same paths. Between Fashion Design and Illustration, which were subjects in which we majored in high school and in university, we have been living art and design for as long as we can remember!
So, what is it exactly that we at LeA want to bring to the forefront using our art and illustrative talents? Well we will show you!
All of our illustrations begin with an abstract concept. Often we will all correspond via the internet, text, or in person about random art ideas we come up with. Sometimes the most brilliant ideas come from our most idle talk!
Other times, we see something that inspires us and base our illustrations on that. We put our own artistic flare on it of course! Each of us as artists have our own ways of interpreting concepts and have our own art styles in which we create them!
Here is some concept drawings we have been working with...
Reading is fundamental! Emphasis on the "fun".
What do you think this one is about? We won't tell just yet!
Oh now what is this? This is something we've been working to perfecting. We can't wait for the final results.
II. Work in Progress
We do have some things in process of being completed, or that are complete but yet to be debuted. We use many different artistic mediums, often digital, but we dabble in many others! Lots of times we would render by hand, scan, and alter digitally.
Watercolor play! Is that a LeA dress she's wearing, hmm?
As you can see, we love books! (We love redheads too!)
Some of you may recognize this little character from one of our current art series! We'll get to that in a moment!
We have a crazy amount of ideas for illustrations! Be it historically inspired, all things girly, vintage, fairytales, you name it, it's cute, we're on it.
Another main goal of our art is to be inclusive of all people of all cultures and races from all around the world. We believe that everyone should have an inspirational character that they can relate to, and to be able to see people of their own being beautiful and iconic. We at Lilith et Adalia firmly believe in an all inclusive creative expression and artistic depiction. We hope that you will support us in our effort.
III. Art Series
Some of you may already be familiar with our ever popular Tumblr comic Lil Dauphine. She is our current leading art series which depicts a little Marie Antoinette who gets into silly situations. Historically based, it's been a hit so far!
Lil Dauphine in "Crushing Beauty", our first Lil Dauphine comic strip!
We even feature a "Lil Dauphin" character based on Louis XVI! You can see him up there in the not yet completed illustration of him on his rocking horse. There is a comic strip featuring him as well!
We will discuss her a little more in a separate blog entry, but for now do check out our tag!
We plan on a couple more Art Series to debut this year! Some are currently in the concept phase at the moment. We have so much that we want to bring to life!
That's all for now! We hope you enjoyed this post! Stay glued to our social media sites in the coming weeks because big things are beginning to happen!
