Street View is a fashion series in which Isa Giallorenzo spotlights some of the coolest styles seen in Chicago.

Brett Manning is once more proving that artists are often the most stylish. Advanced Style muse Lynn Dell once quipped, "fashion says 'me too'; style says 'only me,'" and it's this original personal aesthetic that artists portray, almost like a walking canvas. Brett's green hair and Pokemon beanie reflect her magical, whimsical world, complemented by her tough combat boots and leather jacket. These elements have a lot to do with the comics she's been working on, about "witches, cats, and being a cool, powerful, independent girl," which would appeal to the Rookie generation.

One of Brett's fanciful drawings is below; you can see more at brettmanningart.tumblr.com.
