Kristian Russell about his piece for Wonderwall: “I made this piece as part of a fashion illustration sereis for French magazine Jalouse and was an exclusive collaboration between me & Franco-Japanes stylist Keiko Seya. I would love to produce more of these free fashion images perhaps even for an exhibition.”
