There are only six days left until SI Swimsuit 2016 hits newsstands, and man, oh man, do we empathize with the agony you feel having to wait to see the girls you know and love on the pages of our magazine again! 

So we thought, how better to entertain our faithful followers than with an illustrated sneak peek into the pages of SI Swimsuit 2016?! That's right—for the first time ever, we've teamed up with the insanely cool crew at Chic Sketch and have commissioned a few sketches of some of our favorite moments from the upcoming issue.

SI Swimsuit 2016 Rookie Reveal: Ashley Graham

"I am so honored to have been apart of the SI Swimsuit launch and had the opportunity to draw such beautiful women," said Emily Brickel, co-founder and lead fashion illustrator at Chic Sketch. "Working with Sports Illustrated on this collaboration was really exciting and it was great to be able to bring another dimension to these already gorgeous photographs with my sketches." 

Could that be Nina Agdal? Or how about Hannah Ferguson? Might we spy the one and only Emily DiDonato? Take your best guess and we'll reveal the matches during SI Swimsuit launch week!  

Chic Sketch is a "new and innovative" approach to turning your favorite street style "into a custom fashion sketch." Users can upload a photo of their best look into the company's app to receive a custom sketch drawn by a real fashion illustrator. No two sketches are alike and each is made to order.
