Donald Robertson is a man who is an actual marvel. Once Creative Director at Conde Nast America (launching Marie Claire and redesigning Glamour). He is now the head of Creative Development at Bobbi Brown Cosmetics; a truly creative man. What I love the most about him is his instagram feed. It is a constant joy to me all day every day (he is a very prolific poster) full of his fashion illustrations, ideas from projects he is working on and his life in general.
If I write too much I will just get really gushy and soppy so I’ll let some of his pictures do the talking. (All images taken from Donalds instagram feed @donalddrawbertson (seriously, you must follow him))
He can make beautiful things from a few simple lines of marker pen and Gaffa tape.
Or paint …He has his own little creative projects, currently it’s drawing on nuts…Don’t put anything down when you are round his house as he is likely to draw on it …Or turn it in to something else …He’s funny …and to top it off, he’s got really cute dogs … and kids.
I had the fortune to collaborate with him on the new issue of Marie Claire Runway (out 6th of Feb) We spent a fun couple of days emailing back and forth to create four illustrations to depict all that is great and good about New York, London, Milan and Paris. Here’s a little sneak peak.
We also worked together on the cover and in what is quite possibly the Most Exciting Thing I’ve Done In My Career So Far … STICKERS! Yup, we have a sheet of free fashion stickers inside the magazine … I’ll show you them on Thursday.
