Although I don’t dress this way too often, I do happen to be a big fan of the 1950s, rockabilly, pinup girl look, and I recently re-discovered an online retail shop for clothes of that style, which I’m certain is going to be the death of me. Or at least my bank account! Anyway that site […]

Hope everyone’s having a great weekend. And if you want to check out more illustrations by other artists, visit Paint Party Friday and Sunday Sketches.  Also wanted to mention–it looks like my Google Friend Connect gadget has disappeared.

Even being an avid blog reader, there are few things I look forward to more than getting issues of my favorite magazines in the mail. (What can I say, I’m a print junkie. Probably why I’m still a print journo by day.) What I also look forward to, almost as much, is getting my catalogues […]

I promised myself I would do an illustration involving trees blossoming while they’re actually still doing just that, and thankfully, the Wanderlust girls recently posted some gorgeous and flowerific photos–just the inspiration I needed! I have illustrated the bloggers behind Wanderlust–Emily and Abigail–on My Style Canvas before. I thought the black and white I used  lent […]

I don’t know what I could say about Rumi Neely, the blogger behind Fashion Toast, that everyone else in the blogosphere doesn’t know already. But she has the most followers on Bloglovin’, is now the face of Forever 21, and gets all kinds of cool, designer threads “gifted,” prompting fashion bloggerettes everywhere to step up […]
