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.

Have you ever stepped into a hotel and felt like this is just exactly who I am? If so, where did you feel that way?
For me, I felt it @alrayyan.hotel.doha from the @curiocollection !
.
.How fab is this sunset?
Curious where it is?
40 minutes away from Al Rayyan hotel is the Zekreet Beach. This was a sunset we caught during our stay at Al Rayyan Hotel.

Have you been to any hotel in the @curiocollection ?
Here's a post
✴️Reminiscing about the wonderful time I had at @alrayyan.hotel.doha this weekend
✴️On another note, Summer's almost here and spending it by the pool is a good idea , isn't it? The one at @alrayyan.hotel.doha is amazing! ✴️Did you know that AlRayyan Hotel is the first of the @Curiocollection Hotel in the Middle East ?
I really enjoyed my time at the hotel... Wait for my entire experience coming soon on the blog .

Sugarcane juice or coconut water? 🌴
Which one would you pick?
Do you like to stop by the street and try out the local fruits and vegetables? Are you that person?

"Can I go back here already?" @oryxrotana
I cannot recommend the hospitality of the staff here enough 👌👌
When you book with Club Rotana, your rooms are bigger than normal, check in is from the Executive Lounge, and you get access to the Club Rotana Lounge throughout your stay.
So glad to see that Club Rotana is now in Doha
Have you stayed at oryx Rotana or any other Rotana Hotels? .

Beautiful Art set in a Raw Space and the perfect sunset in the background.
My previous pics were a most obvious art and now this one is more conceptual. The more you look at it the more it says. What art do you like ?
Taking place in the 29th floor of the @wdoha START Doha exhibits works of nine artists either from or living in Qatar
It's going to be around from March 11-14th 9 am - 9 pm .

Happy Friday Folks ! 😊😊
These paintings that have a three dimensional effect are so impressive.
I love art, culture, and anything inspiring. I was fortunate enough to get to see these paintings being done live. What about you?
Did you get a chance to check it out? This was from @citywalkdubai - an initiative of @branddubai
