Quirky, fascinating and weirdly intriguing are the words that come to mind when scrolling through Sean Ryan’s @badlydrawnmodels Instagram account. His distorted, alien-like drawings of beautiful models such as Gigi Hadid, Lily Aldridge and Candice Swanepoel are swiftly gaining recognition throughout the fashion industry.
In an interview with Dazed, Sean revealed that he failed his art exam at school causing him to lose his aspiration of becoming an artist. Years after he turned to Instagram to showcase his illustrations and now has over 77 k followers on his account.
Alongside his popular model drawings, Sean also illustrates celebrities, rappers, footballers, authors and anybody with a unique face. His work also landed him a spot on Calvin Klein’s Palm Springs Coachella pool party guest list where he illustrated those attending.
With a list of people still to draw, Sean told Dazed that he’d 'like to remain thoroughly terrible at drawing forever.' And we for one are pleased with that decision.
