fashion illustrator,  Jamie Lee Reardin

Hers is a distinctive artistic style for body presentation.

As evidenced in her drawings, Ms. Reardin is much influenced by a

Tim Burton-esque imagery à la The Corpse Bride.

Director Tim Burton’s The Corpse Bride

Ms. Reardin’s drawings accentuate:

exaggeratedly long necks

sharp chinned, heart shaped facial structure

immense, piercing eyes with direct, unblinking stare

single, slendered, outstretched lashes at corners

elongated / thin phsyiques without element of frailty

and body posed in awkward, though elegant stances.

Clearly a Tim Burton aficionado

Ms. Reardin’s creations also display hints of influence from

Tony Viramontes

famed American fashion illustrator of the late ’70s and ’80s

who collaborated with haute couture houses and

whose works graced the pages of leading fashion publications.

Mr. Viramontes’ work were alluring, captivating, mysterious, stylised

as is those by Ms. Reardin

Ms.  Reardin who has worked on projects for

Dior, DKNY and L.A. stylist Rachel Zoe, among others

possesses an aesthetics of the slightly macabre-

beautifully executed with an eerie quality of singular feature.
