(above)GPP's work at JP Gaultier & Vivienne Westwood, and with the designer (below)
'I'm only an illustrator.' said Lagerfeld in documentary Signé Chanel (and he was right).
I guess most people in Hong Kong who know of Gladys Perint Palmer, the illustrator & an icon, from my generation was from the late JOYCE
One significant difference between the two is the black outline of GPP's. To me, J-PD's brushstroke tends to be harder, stronger (being a man?!), and to a sense - more real about life from multi-angle, whereas GPP concerns more on details and more catwalk-driven. Guess most of you have seen her book<Fashion People> in the book shop. Wish to see more newer work of her soon.
