The Sketch Book

the gift guide

Hello! Guess what today is… The reveal of the first ever holiday gift guide, hand selected, hand illustrated by moi. I have included everything from these Jacques Levine Inslees to…

The deliciousness of Kiehls.

And from preppy Jcrew toggle coats and Kate Spade fur pullovers t0….

terrifyingly trendy coffee table books about Alexander McQueen.

Go read the whole guide at Shut Up, I Love That!

weekend inspiration

No no, you are mistaken.

This is not me and my traditionally dressed manfriend standing in the window of our elegant living room contemplating how perfect life in NYC at Christmas time is. (as some of you know, said man friend is very difficult to get out of neon shoes and plaid shirts and the living room window is one eighth this size)

This is actually a commissioned Christmas design I recently created for a client. She wanted me to capture the grandeur of old New York, an elegantly designed interior, and of course her and her husband looking fabulous.

I thought it was perfect weekend inspiration. Nothing like a little bit of the drama of old New York to get you in the spirit of this festive time of year.

Happy weekend!

just because

So today I wanted to share a sketch without any particular story. Its not a commission, its not someone I know or spotted on the street, its not a blogger or a celebrity. Just a look I happen to like from Burberry Pre-Fall 2012. I haven’t had time for a sketch like this in forever so it was nice to just sit down and draw!

The Store

An illustration I created for the new Neiman Marcus tumblr banner! This is a loose interpretation of their flagship Dallas store which is called simply “The Store” by insiders. I’m pretty excited to see their content as they post, its going to be gorgeous.

matchbook + jacques levine

Happy Friday! Here is an illustration I created for Jacques Levine’s ad in the new Matchbook Mag December Issue. Its on page 5, you can’t miss it so go read the new issue. Its always a delight!
