The quintessential woman of the 80's was inspiration that allowed the worlds of fashion and illustration to convene in the early works for Malcolm Watson. A strong foundation in traditional art techniques liberated Malcolm's vision. An elegant sophisticated, but utterly contemporary icon of that era emerged into the 90's. The attention to detail, mastery of technique, proved to be a winning combination generating international poster and print sales. Editorial and cover art commissions followed with images gracing publications like Avant Garde, Vogue, Elle and Tatler.
