Donovan is a fashion illustrator, educator, and Christian Dior Beauty’s first-ever Artist-In-Residence. He will demonstrate his painting process, discuss his career, and answer questions in a live demo. Later, a book selling and signing will accompany Donovan’s book talk on his work, Advanced Fashion Drawing/Lifestyle Illustration.

Advanced Fashion Drawing is a practical book showing how to illustrate for the fashion and lifestyle market. Bil Donovan shows how to create an illustration with a sense of fashion, rather than one that concentrates solely on the fashion figure. A series of demonstrations and exercises help the advanced illustration student hone their skills and increase their level of draftsmanship, while establishing their own personal style.

Bil Donovan is an artist, illustrator, author, and educator. His images have been included in many exhibits, most recently the Night and Day at the Museum of The Fashion Institute of Technology and highlighted in The Line Of Fashion at the Museum of the Society of American Illustrators. Donovan has also been commissioned by a variety of companies and publications including Vogue, InStyle, and The St. Regis Hotel Chain. In April 2009, Christian Dior Beauty named Donovan their first Artist-In-Residence. He also currently works as an Assistant Adjunct Professor in the Illustration Department at the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT).
