Anyone who lives in or near NYC knows that up until a couple of days ago we’ve been suffering through an unseasonally cold winter so far, including last Thursday with a snowstorm dubbed a “bomb cyclone.” This may have been at least what partially inspired me to paint a portrait of vintage-loving model and blogger […]

I think Fernanda Ly is my new muse. I recently came across some photos of her modeling a floral headpiece in Christian Dior’s spring/summer haute couture 2017 line and knew I had to recreate the look in water color. I’ve been so busy I’ve had to make this in one to two-hour increments over the […]

Hello and happy almost holidays. (Hey, we just had Thanksgiving, so it’s definitely that time of year.) I got my gift early, a website makeover. I hope you guys like the new layout. I love the way the images appear in a much more striking way. (Thanks, Jupiter Multimedia!) In other news, I just completed […]

Today marks the end of “The Art of Fashion,” a fashion-themed art show I had a few illustrations in Gallery Z in Providence, Rhode Island. While at the opening reception, the curator, Melissa Thyden, also debuted a line of clothing for her own label, Cosmic Unicornz. There were about a dozen outfits, all 90s clubkid/rave […]

  It’s a new year and for many, including myself, a time for reflection and planning for the future. At the risk of sounding corny I want to say that I’m starting off 2017 on a pretty optimistic note. I’ve set a few goals–mostly related to making the best art possible and as much of […]

Happy almost Labor Day weekend everyone. Here is the completed illustration I previously posted about inspired by Alexander McQueen’s Fall 2016 line, especially this butterfly gown as modeled by Ala Sekula. This piece is one of my largest ever at 14 x 20 inches. I know that doesn’t exactly sound huge, but since I normally […]

I hope everyone has been enjoying the summer. However, with the heatwave having stretched on and on in the tri-state area for entirely too long I can’t say I’ll be upset when fall does come along. For me the nasty steam bath weather is all the excuse I need to stay indoors in paint, especially […]

If you live in or around New York City, you may have heard about the blooming of the corpse flower, a phenomenon that had been awaited for decades and finally happened this past weekend at the Botanical Gardens. If you haven’t, well, basically there’s this huge flower that bears a slight resemblance to the man-eating plant […]

Happy July 4th to all of you who are stateside and to those of you outside of the Unites States, well I hope you’re having a wonderful day. This here is just a quick illustration inspired by the Macy’s fireworks display in NYC and also by the metallic accents seen on the clothing of Alexander […]

Has it really been a month since my last post? There’s no excuse for that although I tend to post more art, more quickly on Instagram these days. If anyone wants to join me there my account is @smollot. Anyway for my latest piece I did something I normally don’t do which is to intentionally work […]

A while back, maybe a few months ago, I discovered the style and talent of Jennie Vee, a rock singer and musician. Well to be honest my husband discovered her work. (without his recommendations I’d probably be listening to the same music I’ve been listening to since college) but I got hooked right away. Musically […]

Dearly beloved, like many others I am mourning the loss of the iconic talent known as Prince. Despite being a heterosexual male his flamboyant style made him a gender bender offender and this rock fashion Royal wasn’t apologetic about that in the slightest. I’ve mentioned previously (after the passing of another rock icon, David Bowie) […]
