Hi Everyone!   Anyone who has been looking at my art these past few months will know I've been creating historical fashion characters.  They have been so much fun to create.  I've done a lot  of research to get them to look historically correct as possible (I still have long way to go though).  I've surfed the internet, gone to local libraries, took the metro to Washington DC to Smithsonian Museums and even done research at the library of congress.  I will be creating many more of them.  I plan right now to have 21 in total but I might more even after that.  Historical Fashion covers so many Eras, Centuries, Countries, Styles, and Cultures.  It allows endless creativity and I have learned so my history while conducting my research.  I have now sketched four new characters now on paper.  It will take a few months to finish all of them so I thought I'd tell everyone looking at this page their year and country their from.  I have yet to name them but will find out in the near future.
