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 […]

Happy (almost) Memorial Day, everyone. Now I realize this illo isn’t exactly patriotic or military-themed, but hey, we all celebrate holidays our own way. I just really wanted to illustrate a fierce woman who knows the power of her own beauty. Anyway, I’m hoping the holiday weekend will give me some more studio time because […]
