Happy December everyone, and welcome to my ladies’ poker parlor. Come in, won’t you? Wait — what’s that you say? You think the deck might be stacked against you when it’s clear the woman in the forefront of the room has four Kings and an Ace? And the king is in fact, the man responsible […]

Happy Friday and here’s my latest illustration, inspired by an Alexander McQueen gown shown at New York Fashion Week for the Spring/Summer 2016 Resort collection. I don’t think I’ve ever been disappointed by a line by this design house, and this time around I was especially taken with a fitted gown brimming with various-toned jewels. […]

Happy November, everyone. It’s been too long since my last post and even longer since New York Fashion Week, but I finally got around to illustrating the looks from one of the shows, by Maison Margiela, which I’d been meaning to do for a while. I really enjoyed the vibe of this show. It was […]

Last night, despite a torrential downpour, a nice sized crowd came out for the opening of the latest group show organized by Artfront Galleries. I had four prints of my illustrations on display in the exhibition, where about 50 pieces (paintings, photos and sculptures) were on display. I was the only illustrator. For those who […]

Recently I was invited to participate in another Artfront Galleries show. (This is an organization that has been putting pop-up art exhibits in vacant retail spaces in Newark, NJ.) The show will be in the beginning of October so I’ll post details as soon as I have them. In the meantime, here’s one of the […]

Happy September, everyone and for those in or around NYC, happy Spring 2016 Fashion Week.  Like anyone else interested fashion of course I always look forward to Autumn, though I have to admit I’m already mourning a bit for the summer when the pace was more relaxed and all the expectations of constant devotion to […]

I’m not quite sure what made me want to illustrate the Manhattan skyline in lipsticks but I knew I wanted to do something lipstick related since the other week on July 29 when apparently it was National Lipstick Day. I swear there’s a national day for everything these days. January 21 is Squirrel Day. June […]

For the past couple of weeks I’ve been thinking of little else but painting with coffee. It just seemed like such a fun medium that, if used to create realistic looking art, mimics the look of an old-timey sepia photo. (I want to thank DC in Style for the idea — head over to her blog […]

So…. this week I realized it’s been five years since I started this illustration blog. I did so at the time despite the very intimidating reality that in order to get any eyeballs on my blog in what was already a ridiculously oversaturated art and fashion blog market, it would have to be damn good. […]

Hello and hope you all had a great July 4th. It’s been too long since I posted any illustrations, so here is one inspired by French fashion blogger Louise Ebel of Miss Pandora. Those of you who read this blog know she is a muse of mine; I’ve posted portraits of her here before more than […]

Like many others I wound up paying far more attention to the introduction of Caitlyn Jenner, via a Vanity Fair article and spread, last Monday, than I ever thought I would. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a single episode of any reality show starring a Kardashian. And yet, there I was, crying into my […]

Happy June or rather happy birthday to America’s one and only blonde bombshell, Marilyn Monroe. I was working on an article earlier this week about an upcoming exhibit of Marilyn Monroe photos, so now of course I have Marilyn on the brain. But then, even if you didn’t see many of her movies it’s hard […]
