Sara Andreasson’s work is as distinct as it is changeable and as it should be, each time she updates her portfolio she pushes her illustration into new territory. We last featured Sara back in August and this year she both exhibited and sold out her work at London’s Pick Me Up at Somerset House and has added tongue-in-cheek commissions for both The Guardian and The New York Times to her name, whilst never slowing down on a score of personal projects. The latest of these is a series of alternative fashion illustrations that play with street style and sexuality, starring a glossy-skinned girl gang rendered in bubblegum hues. Set against a pastel backdrop, Sara’s images tease ideas about femininity with glimpses of underarm hair and unruly bikini lines, slivers of sideboob, bare bums and a bit of quiet girl-on-girl groping, taking fashion illustration right outside of its comfort zone.
