The Sketch Book

September Social

Pop the champagne, it’s time to toast the new season!

This fall I launch my 2014 calendar, marking almost ten years of Inslee Calendars! And this fall, we have the addition of a new studio mate here at the NYC headquarters… Roxy Owens, the designer and genius behind Society Social. So now, I have the honor of sharing the space with my favorite PR firm, Goodworks PR and Roxy too!

In honor of the arrival of both 12 new months of illustrations and one new fabulous co-worker,  my lovely studio mates and I are hosting a little September Social this evening in our space!

This is the invitation illustration I designed. Ok, now time to run call the caterer and arrange some flowers. Wish us luck! I’ll post pictures next week from the event.

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.

Fall back to reality

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!

roman memory sketch goes to college

O

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
