The Sketch Book

snapshot

Hello! Just a little snapshot of details to brighten this blustery Friday. I love how fashion photographers are zooming in on delicate real life moments of fashion feng shui so I figured I should start illustrating in the same way.

I love that this is the kind of woman who wears driving gloves and fits all her worldly necessities into a periwinkle alligator skin clutch. I mean would sell my first child for a huge Celine bag but… to float down the street with a clutch in your perfectly manicured hand and a croissant in the other, that is a beautiful thing.

always room for one more

bangles, to know them is to love them. they’re so outgoing, always ready to be stacked with new friends. totally willing to mix and match. do i sound a little creepy?

but really, thank you to the man repeller. the arm party is one of the more relevant and life changing developments of this decade if you ask me. and the source of a hefty amount of my blog material.

so i figured it was time to do an illustration of some of my favorite bangles du jour. of course cartier and hermes, the two heavy weights of the bangle world, are included along with jcrew’s new art deco designs and a few other loose interpretations of less name-brand designs i’ve seen and liked.

i think this might just turn into note cards as well, what do you think?

ps. buy a print!


thank you

a new card design i’m working on… what do you think?

i always dread working on thank you designs. they’re so trite. but then again, its one of the last reasons for modern women to pick up pen and stationery so i shouldn’t complain.

earmuffs

so i’ve been dragging my feet about posting all week (all year). forgive my absence. i was thinking “the first post of 2012″ had to be something monumental. and nothing monumental has happened recently EXCEPT my new love affair…

with earmuffs. the furrier the better.

these fluffy little head bookends have changed my entire perspective on the outdoors. you may laugh but i mean it wholeheartedly. as someone who will not wear hats, i’ve spent 25 winters in stubborn frozen misery. but now all that has changed thanks to my new head gear.

see you out and about the city this weekend, wearing earmuffs of course!

Happy January

2012 is here! Time to crack open the calendar!

I wanted to start the new year with a toast to the designer that taught me so much about the magic of a New York fashion house. So the first illustration of the 2012 calendar is inspired by an early posting on OscarPRGirl‘s beautiful tumblr.
