QR Codes to Illustrate Fashion Icons


Artist Yiying Lu’s most familiar work is probably the infamous Twitter fail whale. And now her techie repertoire includes illustrations of famous faces in fashion that incorporate QR codes.

Lu’s 10 illustrations in Meets Obsession magazine’s “10 Most Intriguing in Fashion” feature are out now, and they include Anna Della Russo, Dov Charney, Terry Richardson, Chloe Sevigny, Sarah Burton and others.

When readers scan the codes in the magazine, they’re directed to Lu’s site where they can download the free artwork to iPhones or iPads.

“I am personally obsessed with the interplay between art and technology, and between digital content and real world content, and this project brings this all together in an innovative and interactive way,” Lu told Mashable last month.
