Talent Discovery “Rongrong Du” an Illustrator

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]How did you first get into illustration?

I started drawing when I was 10 years old. My mom bought me my first fashion magazine, Vogue China, when I was 16. I was instantly mesmerized! I could not stop drawing the beautiful faces and garments from the magazine. That was my initial foray into the wonderful world of fashion illustration! I had no idea I could turn this into a career. I went to college in Shanghai and majored in graphic design. I spent my time there learning and practicing illustration. After graduation I worked as a concept designer for a game company but quickly realized I could not give up my dream to become a fashion illustrator, so I applied to the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York to study fashion illustration.

[/vc_column_text][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]How would you best describe your style of illustration?

My style varies depending on the theme and subject. In general, my style is fashion-focused, playful, fun and detailed.

I mainly use pencil and watercolor. However, I experiment with lots of different media based on the projects. Right now I am working on my holiday project so I am using some metallic paints and glitters.

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]When illustrating, do you sometimes get short of ideas? If so, how do you overcome that?

That is for sure. I feel like when I push myself too hard or am too tired, I tend to get stuck. I will typically switch to a different project or take a break, watch a movie, go to the pool or take a dance class.

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]What would be your ultimate goal as an illustrator?

My goal (exactly same as 15 years ago) is to collaborate with the big fashion brands such as Dior, Channel and etc , as well as illustrate for fashion magazines like Vogue, Nylon, Cosmopolitan and etc.

The wind was strong, the water wild, but there was peace as we watched the sun go down.
Peace that only nature could provide with.
And, it was the most relaxing scene to watch.
A beautiful experience for me.

LIMITLESS SKIES
Pushing myself to do better everyday is one thing I have always done for myself.
I have believed that the only limit you have around is dependent on what you place yourself in.
How beautiful is this view? From an excursion taken during my stay in the @sholacrownmunnar

N E W  P H O N E  C O V E R @caseartsI love colors, painting, art, and so many things. I am sure I cant make a list of what I like here because its never ending. I have been following @inkstruckstudio 's beautiful artworks and blog.
She has a free downloadable wallpaper up on her blog every month. Very pretty ones!
And, I fell in love with the one in October like every other work of hers.
When @casearts came to me - (they give you printed mobile cover designs of your choice.)
I had no idea what I wanted as my mobile cover.
And, then when I saw Zakkiya's wallpaper I decided that this wallpaper would look pretty as my phone cover. I loved how it turned out.
Thank you @casearts for this mobile cover.
And, thanks Zakiyya for sharing your beauriful artwork with us every other day.

Who would believe if they saw these pearls crafted to perfection were actually chocolates? Until I had a bite of it and saw it for myself, i was just amazed.
These welcome amenities from @ritzcarltondoha kept me staring at its beauty for a while before I could take a bite out of it. What beauty! Such incredible skills 😍😍

Never done a vlog before but I think its about time you get an insight into my experiences with more than just words.
These were shots I took in the @kandolhu Maldives with absolutely no plans of creating a vlog. However, since I came across a creative videographer @ah.films who put it together brilliantly, I thought this had to come online. I hope you enjoy watching it and let me know your thoughts . πŸ’—πŸ’— .
