So I've Been MIA For A While

Tis True~ I've left you waiting on that mid summer morning when father took my camera.

However! Ive gotten it BACK!!

Recently I've tried to develop more male designs, and its working.

I still can't draw models very well yet, so i use croquis. I know if someone were to teach me how, i can do it like a PRO! but for me to just sit down on my own, its pretty damn hard. I have the potential because all of the designs below are mine, so imagine what I could do if I could draw my own models!

Anywho, I am going to keep posting until I fulfill my desires and reach my goals! I'd probably continue anyway, its good practice!

I think I deserve a set of tria fashion markers. . . dont you? :D

Okay, in my Art 2 class, we've been given an assignment to draw "oneself as other". 
Meaning create a self portrait with the characteristics of a person u look up to. 
I chose Cristobal Balenciaga! Simply because he went for nothing, to becoming the center of attention of Royal  Spaniards who wore his designs. 
So, ive been practicing in my bathroom mirror, when i thought to myself, this would be so much easier if i could stay still. 
So i decided to take a picture, and then draw myself from the picture. Is that cheating?? Well, i think it came out nice, so its okay. 

This is the original picture I took, the cliche Facebook teenager pose. 

And this is my drawing. I got some red watercolor on the side of it because it was laying on my desk, but, happy mistakes! While drawing this I was Thinking of "Katniss: the girl who was on fire"-from the hunger games. Since her being from a coal district, i mostly used pencil and just a little color for my skin tone. I think i did pretty darn good! Dont you?

I am doing a scholarship contest for FIDM, and i thought it came out good. Okay,,,, to start this blog off, i am really pissed! I thought this thing was dues 4/15/11, buh its really due 5/16/11.
What a bummer! But its okay, its actually a good thing.
Because it put some fire under my procrastinating behind!
So now i know what i can do under pressure, which i gotta say is pretty good. However now that i have more tome, i know i can do better~

I like how this came out, no change!

I love how this came out, no change!

IDK about this one, why dont u give me ur opinion?

This one is for sure a must change!! I did this really quick, and i know i can do way better! My coloring is half-ass, and my lines aren't great. Bottom line... I can do way better.

We've come up with this new term : "HIPSTER".
Allow me to define it for you; One who possesses tastes, social attitudes, and opinions deemed cool by the cool.
My friends consider me a hipster, maybe I am. I like to think that the term hipster has been derived from hippie, and I love hippies. 
It is indeed spring time, and when i think of spring, i think of WOOD STOCK! 
So i have created a chic Hippie two piece with white cork wedges. 
A young woman within early twentys would probably sport this on the beach. 
I uses a croqui from Nancy Regilmen. Since i am not that good at drawing humans proportional. 
But the design is all my own. H 2 T: head to toe. 
I was isnpired by my best friend Rachel Robles, So i wanna dedicate this post to her. Shes been going through some stuff, but i still love her!

My name is TREVEION MICHAEL WHITAKER. I am a designer! I might not have my own line, but i do design clothes. I believe that art in itself is to delight and inform. Most of my inspiration comes from pop culture and the 70's. Im a huge fan of Twiggy, and Mary Quant. My designs are mostly modern-contemporary. I try to attract the every day young adult both male and female, with an outrageous, and eccentric sense of style. This Blog, will be my weekly opportunity to show the world the best I can do. Hopefully, I will become as great and as magnificent as my all time favs: Alexander Mcqueen, Atsuko Kudo, Calvin Klien, Alexander Wang, Juicy Coture, and many many more.I Love both positive and negative feed back. So let me know your opinion.I have to give credit to my art teachers Mr. Wilson and Ms. Lawson and all my teachers to come, because without them I wouldn't be who i am today, which is a total Fauvist. Im still in high school, but I am aiming for a college education at FIDM, The Academy Of Coture Arts, or The Academy of Arts. Wherever the world takes me Im willing to go. Im  often enfluenced by foreign designs, such as Japanese Harjuku Girls, or French Coture. From Traditional African and Mexican wardrobes, to English Retro styles. 

All in All, this is my blog, TRENDY NARCOTICS, so stay posted for my updates!
