A collection of daily drawings of all sorts of must haves, The Envy Edit is the brainchild of Sydney creative, Angelique Sloss.
[contextly_sidebar id=”3iN6EFUD8HiVSBBdTLtfpZJ1abtm0jI1″]With a background in the fashion industry, Angelique had always had a strong affinity for drawing, however she had never seen it as something more than a hobby, until now. “Designing, illustrating and trend forecasting have always been apart of my 5-9. I love to keep busy and make sure my creative juices keep flowing. So with my latest venture I wanted to do something different. I wanted to combine my love of drawing and my Instagram addiction.” And so, The Envy Edit was born!
Illustrating items that reflect what is currently trending, as well as some of her all-time favourite pieces, Angelique draws anything and everything from homewares to fashion to food. And as a special treat, she has created three Interiors Addict x The Envy Edit illustrations. We absolutely love them!
Showcasing all her artworks on her Instagram feed, @theenvyedit, she also sells a selection of them as prints and greeting cards via her online boutique. Creating the illustrations with either markers, watercolours or pencils, no illustration has the same design process. “Each project is different. I usually start by analysing the purpose of the artwork then go from there. Majority of the time I use images saved in my phone as reference for what I am drawing. Having that by my side, I begin sketching up the image with pencil. I then choose what materials are best for the artwork.”
No longer strictly working in fashion, when Angelique’s not busy drawing she’s freelancing for a variety of brands. “Being in the creative world I juggle a few different roles. I am a freelancer for a few brands — working on their marketing and design projects — and I also lecture at one of the design colleges in Sydney: Karl Von Busse Institute of Design.”
