Donya-Patrice X Vincent Nappi

I’ve recently teamed up with the talented illustrator and author Vincent Nappi. Originally from New York, Nappi is now based in Kansas City, Missouri. I had the wonderful opportunity to be a muse for Nappi. His particular style is sketchy and dark with shaded hues. He has illustrated three really cool images of me. The images were taken from a recent shoot of mine. The inspiration for the back drops originated from the fifties, I felt that the fifties inspired backdrops would compliment my styling which set the mood of that era. He creatively illustrates the images of me inspired by this period. It’s really interesting to see how someone else visualises, interprets and stylises an image. I’m a great fan of his work.
