Live Illustration – Elizabeth Arden Holiday Showcase

Last night I had the pleasure of live-illustrating at the Elizabeth Arden Holiday Showcase to help them celebrate the launch of their newest fragrance, UNTOLD.

Guests at the event sampled and compared the new fragrance with the original Red Door. The new scent has a modern, youthful feel, reminiscent of downtown New York City living while the Red Door classic scent makes you think of uptown NYC.

Each guest got to choose their style inspired by these fragrances – uptown or downtown – and then I illustrated each into a scene that captured a little bit of their style and their favorite part of NYC.

As you can see, I was pretty proud of how they turned out. The Elizabeth Arden team caught me instagramming my work!

  • Inslee: Your stepdad and I have known each other since 1975, and even worked together in banking here for several years prior to his going into the aviation field. Prior to moving to Washington, I was the V P Finance of the Elizabeth Arden company. I joined the company shortly after Miss Arden passed away in 1965. In 1971, I negotiated the sale of the company to Eli Lilly, staying until 1975, when I moved to DC to go into banking. By this time, I have pretty much lost all contact with my former colleagues and am vaguely aware of the fact they the company has changed hands several times. I would love to know more about what you are doing there and what you know about the company

    I am sorry that I will not be able to meet you this Thursday, but I would hope that there is some other way we can meet or at least be in communication as there is still a little part of me that is and always will be invested in that wonderful name and image.

    Congratulations to you on the very impressive and exciting work which you are doing.

    Best regards, Alex
