So much hoopla is made each year over Black Friday and in more recent years there have also been the shopping feeding frenzy days known as Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday. While I’m all for scoring deals, supporting small businesses and the convenience of shopping online, I just don’t know how anyone summons […]

  So here we are in the middle of November, that time when fall is almost winter and hats are becoming a given. I’m a hat person so that’s fine by me, and with this illustration, I thought I’d pay attention to a hat style I’ve always loved. The always cute — and for some […]

  Recently, designer Alexander Wang teamed up with H&M to create a collection of sporty looks for both men and women. While I normally would walk past anything resembling gym clothes with my nose in the air, I have to say this line is different — not a sweatshirt or tracksuit to be found — just […]

For those in the market for a new fur coat, this season, it’s time to ditch basic black, brown and leopard print and go for bright colors. Another option is to go for bold patterns and spots, including polka dots, which, like rainbow color, keep this luxe, but traditional item of outerwear feel fresh again. […]

I’ll keep this post short and sweet since I’m dealing with a miserable cold but the ArtFront Galleries show I posted about the other week opened yesterday. It was supposed to be sooner, but was delayed due some permit issues relating to the fact that it’s a pop-up in a former furniture store. So, better […]

  I had been itching to do a portrait lately and I knew I wanted it to be someone glamorous, but I also knew I didn’t feel like doing one of my typical fashion blogger illustrations. Or even one of my street style stalking targets. Not that I don’t enjoy those subjects any more. But […]

  Okay so today instead of doing my usual thing of posting a new illustration, I’m posting one from almost two years ago when I wrote about the jewelry company Bora. This is a small, Brooklyn-based jewelry company that had a booth full of silver jewelry, mostly chunky rings and pendants at the Union Square […]

    Happy October, everyone. Don’t you just love fall weather? I think it’s everyone’s favorite season for fashion and I’m no exception. But rather than post one of my usual Fashion Week-inspired runway illos, I’ve opted for something a bit different. Granted, the fashion you see here is equally impractical as anything you’d see […]

  Well, first off I want to explain my absence from this blog for nearly 20 days. I normally try to post more regularly (key word = try, heh), but in this case I was just desperately trying to meet a deadline to create a couple of new pieces for an upcoming show. The gal […]

  Like many others, I was devastated this week to learn of the untimely death of comedian Joan Rivers. Even at 81, she seemed to be in great shape, having worked her magic on stage just a few days before she stopped breathing during what was supposed to be minor throat surgery. I’ve always been […]

  Okay, disclaimer time: I have no idea if Eva Chen would really do any of this stuff, let alone endorse these fashion picks. This comic is just my way of celebrating the one-year-anniversary of Eva Chen as editor of Lucky magazine. (Also, as indicated in the comic, her #evachenpose, in which she posts selfies […]

  Well, today is #ThrowbackThursday, so I guess that means I’m allowed to reminisce about the fact that it’s been four years since I started this blog. Granted My Style Canvas was at a Blogspot address at first and I was just learning how to use watercolors then, but otherwise this blog has stayed true […]
