Yess!! use them, seems like my illustrations had been discovered by an editor in the Irish Independent when she searched for illustration of Erin O’connor, and I am so glad she did.
here is the article I got published in:
This year my family and I decided to celebrate Eid in Riyadh and with no doubt we made the right choice!
It has been a long time since I so my cousins and seeing them made me realize how much I have missed them. It is a blessing to have all the people you love around you and I am thankful to Allah that I do.
I wish you all a Happy and Blessed Eid, and more Eids to come inshallah with whom you love.
This Eid I was lucky to be chosen by the gifts and greeting cards store “Papermoon” as one of the local talents to collaborate with them in designing Eid greeting cards, here are 2 of the designs and I hope you like them!
It has been a long time since I illustrated anything and I have reached the point where I wanted to kill my blog but then realized that I only felt this way because I was angry of myself for not making any effort to keep doing what I love. Studying and working on “the it magazine” is taking a lot of my time but I promised myself that I will try my best to at least draw something once a week! and I hope I don’t disappoint myself anymore!
This is Milou Van Groesen, the face of Georgio Armani “spring 2012 campaign”, obviously I couldn’t decide which background I want to work with so I wanted to share all three options here and I hope u guys like it!

Despite photography’s prominence, fashion illustration continues to hold a certain allure within the industry. Jean-Philippe Delhomme’s painterly brushstrokes for Barney’s ad campaigns, Ruben Toledo’s whimsical watercolors for Nordstrom, and David Downton’s ability to capture a fashion icon with a few lines, have left an indelible impression on us.
Always on the look out for new talent, we sat down with Moona Al-Qahtani, a young Saudi fashion illustrator, who interpreted this season’s 40’s influence for D’NA.
When did you become interested in fashion illustration?
My mom used to make our school uniforms and dresses for special occasion. She would purchase McCalls catalogues and Vogue patterns, and I was very inspired by the illustrations in them. Vogue was also always around growing up, since my sister Mo-d is a Vogue-aholic. Every now and then they would publish breathtaking illustrations that stood out from all the photography.
