Portrait of Jennifer Connelly as Sarah Williams in the epic ballroom dance scene in the 1986 film, “Labyrinth,” only with a touch of ink inspired by the Goblin King. (Now in shop.)

I know that technically fall isn’t here yet, but let’s be real, the passing of Labor Day is always good enough for me. This illustration, I hope, captures my love of fall fashion, with this portrait of model Rhadika Nair wearing a floral coat and dress by Anna Sui (Fall 2018). Very happy with the […]

Hello, Sarah. It’s hard to believe “Labyrinth” came out 32 years ago. It’s one of my favorite films since I first saw it as a child and recently I rediscovered how fantastic it is, with such brilliant music, acting and puppetry, through the eyes of my daughter. But I felt David Bowie’s epic villain character, […]

When I tought myself to paint in watercolors eight years ago one of the first pieces I painted was a portrait of Karen Elson. It was right after she released “The Ghost Who Walks,” an Americana album that proved she was more than just a pretty face or Jack White’s wife. It was pretty basic […]

I couldn’t be more excited to open a shop here on my website for some of my original illustrations and art. I’ve been blogging, publishing my art here since 2010, so I would say it’s about time. I still have prints available as well as other items like cups and cell phone cases on my […]

I admit that even in the days leading up to the royal wedding, I didn’t care about anyone involved. I mean, didn’t Americans fight a war so we didn’t have to care about what people are doing over the pond? Nevertheless I admit I felt differently once I could no longer ignore the constant media […]

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 […]

It’s the coldest day of the fall so far in NYC so how could I not pine for spring and flowers. Pictured here is the lovely Liu Wen modeling an Anna Sui dress, crochet duster and sunnies from the Spring 2018 RTW line. I made the pattern of the dress come alive and fly away […]

Usually I paint butterflies because I like how they look, how beautiful and how fragile. Something we enjoy looking at but really ought to leave alone. But in this case, I saw them as being symbolic of all the victims of sexual harassment and assault who are finally being freed from their silence in no […]

I freely admit being obsessed with butterflies. They make any image immediately look more light and magical. So I added these wings to a portrait of Dirty Martini, a Burlesque Hall of Famer and former Miss Exotic World winner who also recently toured with Dita Von Teese. Anyway this is another piece for an upcoming […]
