I loved working on the Beauty opener for Seventeen Magazine‘s March issue. I was going for a mix between a 60’s and 80’s illustration vibe. I got to use Essie‘s newest polish, aptly called watercolors. All of those drips you see and her nails are actual polish. I love working with Seventeen, they always give fun projects and this one was no exception.
I was recently asked to do an interview for a series by Melanie Biehle. We chatted about my work, life and whether or not I’m a fashionista (spoiler alert, I’m not!).
It’s a celebration of motherhood in watercolor and word. I found quotes that you won’t see anywhere else and they range from witty to poignant. I really hope you find ones that resonate with you and your experience and that the art moves you.
After doing 5 billion illustrations for the CFDA for the spring/summer 2016 shows, I’ve been doing other kinds of projects. Still, I could not resist painting these sailor hats from the FW 2016 Men’s and Women’s Prada show.
I love Pinterest. I have always had an archive of interesting images but since pinterest they’re now hosted online versus in random folders on my desktop. Since my book is coming out soon I decided to start a new board called A Mother is a Story. I’m pinning style that’s effortless; literally my criteria is no high heels or other uncomfortable things. I’m also posting family friendly but cool decor and anything else motherhood or family related. Check out the board and follow along if it’s your bag.
