CSULB Illustration Professor Robin Richesson included in History of Costume Illustration book

Posted on April 12, 2013 by School of Art

Hollywood Sketchbook – A Century of Costume Illustration is the first volume published on costume design illustration for the movies. This groundbreaking book celebrates one hundred years of the costume designers’ and costume illustrators’ contributions to the art of cinematic storytelling.  Professor Richesson’s work on movies Forrest Gump, Beloved, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button as well as Stuart Little were all featured. Richesson says, “The most fun for me is storytelling, the narrative, and drawing the human figure. This has always been at the heart of my work since I began studying illustration.” Alongside her works were drawings from both costume designers and illustrators representing silent-era movies all the way to today’s blockbusters (or in movie speak, all the way from  Intolerance to Wizard of Oz to Mary Poppins to Godfather II to Fight Club to The Help.)
