Dazed & Confused

Illustration by Noemi Sunshine Ferst

Last night, lovely friend Kelly Smith unveiled her masterpiece submission to a competition held by Dazed & Confused.
She immediately inspired me to attempt my own take on the Dazed challenge.
Dazed & Confused have selected 10 covers from the last decade and have offered them to us illustrators from all around the world to take them do what we please to them.
Unfortunately, my sweet Kelly informed me that the closing date was today and told me to get cracking!
And that's exactly what I did!
Though it was a race against time, I managed to make my modest contribution. I would have loved to have more time to think about it, let a few ideas flutter in my head, eventually develop them, but it wasn't meant to be.
So may I present to you, my last minute homage to the divine Karen Elson and this great magazine!
Hope you like it.

Oh yay you DID do it! :)
Love it - the hair must've taken you hours!!!
I'm sorry I should have mentioned it earlier....I didn't even think about it.
But the point is you made it! Hooray!
Fingers crossed that one of us ends up published in Dazed...even if it's just a teeny tiny picture I don't even care! XxX

I love your drawing style. especially the hair - it reminds me of old school tattoo flash art with the individual tendrils.
