Say Happy Birthday (a day late) to Eva, the fabulous editor of Lucky Magazine
I created this sketch in collaboration with Jouer Cosmetics as a gift for her. It was such fun for me to sketch someone I find inspiring and stylish. When the Jouer girls suggested that I illustrate her, I barely let them finish the sentence. Of course I wanted to illustrate her! Her instagrams are so good, her accessories are so good, her magazine is so good. What’s not to love!?
HBD, Eva, I hope it was… so good.
It’s fall! Time to step away from the beat up old flip-flops and shorts, pack away the little-white-dresses and put on your transitional wardrobe. Let’s buckle down for some serious work and a seriously packed social schedule. September is such an energizing time, isn’t it?
This sketch was created for The Simply Luxurious Life to celebrate Shannon’s services as a wardrobe stylist. Wouldn’t you want to hire her? After all, she styled this sketch!
How fierce is this girl? I was going for mysterious and sultry, but she turned out kind of seething with anger by accident. I was thinking she might be a 2014 calendar girl… but felt like her aggressive eye contact might have been a bit much for a whole 30 days.
You see, as I was sketching her I was listening to an NPR review of Kanye’s new (and I might add, overly aggressive) album. So basically, I blame this illustration’s personality on Kanye and his issues. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I enjoy a good musical rant as much as the next person under the right circumstances and I respect anyone who can come up with a stranger baby name than Inslee (North definitely out-does Inslee). But… his vibe is all wrong for my ladies.
Bet you never thought I’d write a blog post about Kanye West, did you? Me either!
On that note, I wish you all a glorious weekend – and one hopefully not too filled with kayne-angst… kanyangst. New word!
Omg! I’m so excited to see this picture on the Washington & Lee website of a girl hanging her Roman Memory print in her dorm room…
A friend of mine just happened to stumble upon it while browsing the site. How wonderful is that?! My sketch gets to go back to my alma mater. What a glorious endorsement from the world of bright young freshman. I remember how important it was that I select just the right things for the coveted space on my dorm walls when I arrived at w&l, so knowing that Roman Memory made the cut for this girl’s room is quite a feather in her cap
