In the art world there’s a fine line between genius and failure, but when it comes to the Instagram account Badly Drawn Models, the two go hand in hand. The gimmick, run by decided non-artist Sean Ryan, transforms the faces of the fashion world from perfection into, well, something that comes up well short of that beauty ideal.
Ryan, who’s account has attracted over 21,000 followers, does have one thing in common with the fashion world of the moment, he told Dazed in an interview recently: he’s only the look out for unique looking models who stand out from the crowd. “It’s always great to draw distinctive faces, so some of my recent favorites have been Natalie Westling, Freya Lawrence, Molly Bair, Binx Walton and Kelly Mittendorf,” he said. “I think they’ve all got such unique looks.”
