It must be artist week on the blog because today I’m bringing you another fabulous artist that I’m sure many of you have already heard of. Rongrong DeVoe, 32, is a Houston-based Fashion Illustrator who has already taken the fashion illustrating world by storm. She’s been featured in magazines, such as Vogue and In Style and her client list includes the likes of Chanel, Neiman Marcus, Maybelline, and more. Rongrong is so insanely talented and her sketches are full of color and life! I’m such a fan of this lady (she’s so sweet, too!), and I’m thrilled to be featuring her in today’s interview. Keep on scrolling for a look into Rongrong’s world and to see a sampling of her incredible illustrations.
RONGRONG DEVOE, FASHION ILLUSTRATOR
Have you always loved illustrating? If not, when did you first become interested in it and when did you decide this is what you wanted to do?
I always loved fashion and art! I decided to be a full time fashion artist when I moved to Houston. I knew I would regret it if I didn’t give myself a chance.
How did you go from sketching as a hobby to turning it into a full time business? What do you attribute all your success to?
It takes a lot of work. I try to be creative with what I draw, why I draw it, and who I should work with. I think an artist also has to learn how to think like a business woman.
