Clym Draws Twin

07.05.2014 | Art | BY:

Last week, when Team Twin flocked to Rififi in Mayfair to celebrate the release of our tenth issue, we met Clym Evernden, a freelance artist and illustrator. Clym started drawing at a very young age and it was during his teens that his illustrations became ocupied by fashion, often inspired by specific models such as Karen Elson, Carolyn Park and Devon Aoki, but at our party last week, it was designer Simone Rocha and blogger Ella Catliff that caught his attention.

“I’ve drawn ever since I can remember, however I’ve illustrated and been commissioned since I was around 21, when I was first commissioned by Clare Coulson for Harpers and Queen,” since then Clym’s work has featured in the pages of Vogue, Elle, Fantastic Man, i-D and AnOther Magazine, but he is now working more and more as a live event illustrator, something he himself pioneered: “I like to work from life as this helps to capture the spirit, movement, and atmosphere of my subject matter.” That it does, and with the aid of social media, these live illustrations are becoming big news in the fashion world, seeing as he was recently commissioned to illustrate live at a dinner hosted by Carine Roitfeld in Paris, in which he illustrated guests such as Arizona Muse, Kendall Jenner, and Susie Bubble.

“I tend to go for people who have extreme proportions, whether it be a long fringe, big nose, or gangly limbs,” states Clym, when asked about what attracts him to certain people, “my taste is certainly not restricted to drawing model type figures, in fact I often find these the most boring.” It’s certainly people that inspire him most, which is why he says he spends many an hour people watching. Other inspirations? “I also love music, the atmosphere and mood of a track can inspire me. At the moment I’m listening to Suede and recalling that whole trashy 90’s soho thing.”
