Dearly beloved, like many others I am mourning the loss of the iconic talent known as Prince. Despite being a heterosexual male his flamboyant style made him a gender bender offender and this rock fashion Royal wasn’t apologetic about that in the slightest. I’ve mentioned previously (after the passing of another rock icon, David Bowie) […]

  Happy spring, everyone and with that, a fairytale themed illustration for an open call for illustrators using the Chanel couture line spring/summer 2016 as inspiration organized by Marcus Kan of Draw a Dot. I also used the German fairytale The Twelve Dancing Princesses as inspiration. For those unfamiliar with the story there’s a part […]

Happy almost spring. I’d been meaning to do some New York Fashion Week illos since, well, Fashion Week, and had started a few. Finally finished one though and here it is, inspired by the beautiful lace dresses seen at Self-Portrait (designed by Han Chung) for Fall 2016. The different blues in the flowers on some […]

I realize I am probably one of the last people on the planet to do this but I recently joined Instagram. Well technically I joined over the summer but I didn’t pay any attention to my account until recently. I just felt like there was only so much social media I had time to follow. […]

  Like so many others, I was shocked to hear about the death of David Bowie. A brilliant artist and showman suddenly gone, not to mention another innocent person lost too soon to the modern plague of cancer. Since the news broke the beginning of last week, I’ve been listening to his music quite a […]

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 […]

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 […]

When thinking of what to post this week, I was torn between creating an illustration to celebrate Pantone’s color of the year for 2013 and an illustration in honor of St. Patrick’s Day. Then I realized…. with Pantone’s color being emerald, I don’t even have to choose! I don’t have much in the way of […]

This is a post I probably should have made in February, since I’m sure everyone’s all Fashion Weeked out by now, but there was so much gorgeousness going on at NYFW Fall 2013 that I couldn’t resist sharing my thoughts and inspiration along with everyone else. So without further ado, here are three illustrations inspired […]

New York Fashion Week, despite some weather-related snafus, did not disappoint when it came to some daring makeup looks for both eyes and lips. From cat eyes to goth lips to glitter, the mood for Fall 2013 seemed to be all about bold and edgy glamour. There were a few designers who chose to keep […]
