Time to change the calendar again! And this month is brought to you by my love of J.Crew!
October girl is so fall cozy with her layered fall patterns and textures and obedient doxie, I need to catch up with her. I’m still in my warm weather wardrobe – trying to wear the darkest colored of my summer clothes for a little longer. Maybe this weekend I’ll take the plunge.
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!
