I had the pleasure of interviewing the Wanderlust girls, Emily and Abigail, three months ago for the newspaper I write for, Town & Village. And it was obvious based on our conversation then that these recent college grads really know their stuff when it comes to fashion writing and styling. So much so that as […]

As you’ve probably noticed, I’ve been on a major fashion blogger kick lately. I’ve been reading a lot more fashion blogs since starting my own last summer and have really been inspired by the effort that goes into some of the better ones, even when the bloggers aren’t making a dime for their photo shoots.  […]

There are girls who always know how to pull together a cute outfit for their blog-reading audiences, giving us a quick fashion fix and some inspiration, and then there are the girls who take things a step further and take us to another place altogether. A blog I’ve really been enjoying lately is Yours Truly […]

     Hello lovelies. First I just wanted to apologize for the lack of posts lately. It’s not because I haven’t been illustrating.  It’s because I was working on designing a fashionable girl who’d be a mascot of sorts for a company, and I must have done about 8 or 9 drawings before I came […]

It kind of feels like words won’t do justice to Making Magique, a fashion blog with a somehow new-feeling theme of American girl in Paris, but I’ll give it a whirl. Haleigh, the mind and heart behind Making Magique, is a pure romantic. Her posts generally have some fairytale in them, whether it’s in an […]

I used to have an art professor in college who would go around the class saying “Feel the paint” and “Become one with the paint” as we were all attempting to get his lame assignments over with. I used to roll my eyes because it seemed like the world’s most obvious advice, like “Don’t forget […]

A blog I’ve been really enjoying lately is Pandora’s Box.  When I first saw it, my jaw dropped because the publisher/model behind it, Sarah Whitney, looked like the doppelganger of one of my favorite actresses and fashion muses, Mia Kirshner. But despite the uncanny resemblance, this 22-year-old chick is no copycat.  Sarah clearly has her own “SoCal” […]

So today I created three illustrations of a fashionable woman that may end up getting used in the campaign of a brownie company. Wheeee, how exciting. Hope they like. However since they haven’t been shown to the client yet I can’t print ’em here. Odds are they’ll need to be tweaked in some way or […]

This is by far the most goth looking thing I’ve ever painted–at least since the 90s and occasionally had an inverted cross painted under my own eye. Or a black liquid liner swirl a la Death from Sandman comics. (Yeah yeah in hindsight we can all silently vomit!) Anyhoo, this week I was reminded of […]

When you were doing something naughty and a grownup asked you what exactly you were planning on doing with your life, did you say: I plan on running my own business, selling pink roller skates with pom poms and stuffed unicorns? And just maybe some rhinestone-studded cat eye sunglasses and baby doll t-shirts with burlesque […]

Forgot where I found the photo this sketch was based on….

One of my new fashion muses is St. Vincent–that would be the singer, not the shuttered NYC hospital. Her real name is Annie Clark, and I love her style for a couple of reasons. 1) Her choices are always incredibly girly and usually paired with minimal makeup consisting of ruby lips and accentuated lashes. No […]
