Oksana Nedavniaya - Costume Illustrator

This week I've been reading 'The Night Circus' by Erin Morgenstern, a book that I have been dying to read every since I read the first two pages in a charity shop almost a year ago. From the first paragraph I was absorbed by the depth in character, setting, mystery and magic. I knew I would love the world Morgenstern had created in this novel and from a designers perspective I was instantly desperate to see the visuals realised as a film. Almost immediately this story made it to the top of my list of novels I dream of designing for one day.

It's not surprising then that I am in a bit of a circus mood at the moment! I absolutely love Oksana Nedavniaya's costume illustration style, and I was so happy to find her drawings for circus-themed film 'Water for Elephants':

Oksana's other illustrations are equally inspiring! She first developed her illustration work while at music college, choosing to focus her drawings on historical dress. Today, she works as a film costume illustrator.
