Sadly, the Puerto Rican artist's life was cut short like many of his peers in the fashion industry do to suffering from AIDS. Though his legacy lives on as one of the 20th century's most influential Fashion Illustrators.

Now for some of my favorite illustrations by Antonio Lopez.

Elle, May 1967

These last 3 full page images are my absolute favorite!  Everything from the color, to the nonchalant facial expressions, to the simply portrayed activities of the everyday fashionista- pure brilliance.  I think I may paint the walls of my future house with these ingenious illustrations.
