Let The Blogging Commence.




This blog has been a long time coming and I am thrilled (and impressed) that I allowed myself to finally press the publish button and begin. I am officially a blogger...Bloggette? No just blogger.
Lets keep it simple.

As you can tell from the above  I am a fashion illustrator and designer.
Before I was an illustrator I was a professional doodler.

My hope is to share my work and in return receive wisdomous or constructive feedback.

Along with my work you'll get a glimpse into who and what inspires me, as well as the random thoughts that pop into my head every other second. It's a mess up there. If only my mind consisted of filing cabinets and a mute button. That would be ideal. 

I wish people posed for portraits more often. In a world of selfies and choreographed photographs, I always find it refreshing when there is an image of a woman relaxed, seated gracefully on chair.

In this illustration I wanted to capture the essence of a woman at ease with herself. Light weight fall to winter coat, checkered trouser with a unique top she found at a consignment shop. Gotta love those gems you find while rummaging through the racks while simultaneously trying to play it off like you weren't the one that just knocked all the sweaters off the hangers. Oops. You also gotta love how there is never a label in these fantastic finds. Always leaving you with the lingering question, WHERE DID YOU COME FROM??

Till next time!
Your homework for the week:
Eat as many holiday cookies as you can.
Extra credit if you score a festively decorated cupcake.
