“The idea of making a drawing and not having to have it be checked by a merchandiser or edited— just putting it out on the internet—was really incredibly profound and exciting.”

Haines, a graduate of the Communication Arts and Design program, designed for Calvin Klein, Perry Ellis and Bill Blass before achieving renewed success sharing his fashion illustrations on his blog and Instagram, @richard_haines.
