I am so excited to share my hand-painted/Shibori inspired print for the Hatch Collection. I love Hatch so much and have had the pleasure of working with them since they first started. They just launched or er…hatched a gorgeous new site to match their inspired spring collection. Here are some great new pieces featuring the Shibori print. I’m getting the racerback jumpsuit in time for spring!!
I was so excited when Rachel Schectman, founder of STORY reached out to collaborate on their next big reinvention. STORY takes the point of view of a magazine, changes like a gallery and sells things like a store. Every four to eight weeks, STORY changes entirely – from merchandise and store design to floor plan and fixtures – to bring to light a new theme, trend, or issue. I had the pleasure of working on portraits, signage and lettering throughout the space for Your STORY!
“Your STORY” is produced in partnership with AwesomenessTV, a next generation multi-platform media company serving the global teen audience. Here’s a brief description of what’s happening:
Open today, March 9th through Sunday, April 5th, the experience brings AwesomenessTV’s high profile digital talent into brick-and-mortar retail and immerses visitors in an experience focused on personal creation and self-authored storytelling, highlighted by an installation from Brooklyn illustrator Samantha Hahn.
Your STORY highlights the stories of influential YouTube personalities. Through its signature mix of editorialized merchandise and events. STORY curated products that express the talents’ unique personalities and perspectives including BaubleBar, Brit + Co, Supply System, Dylan ’ s Candy Bar, Bow and Drape, Julep…and more.
Through a series of hand-painted watercolors, Brooklyn artist Samantha Hahn illustrates the ‘who’ and the ‘what’ of Your STORY. “We wanted the experience to visually connect the digital with the physical world,” notes Rachel Shechtman, founder of STORY. “Samantha’s artwork expresses these personalities in a fresh and personal way to encourage the discovery of these talented individuals offline.”
Check out an interview STORY did with me about my work process and thoughts on this fun collab. And, here’s a little teaser video I made:
Last Night I was invited to hang out with Julia Rothman, Leah Reena Goren and Rachael Cole at Ladies Drawing Night. They just get together to draw and paint and shoot the sh*t. Lately, they’ve been inviting other artists to join them for themed nights to capture the work and experience (photographer Kate Edwards was with us) for their upcoming Chronicle book.
Last night Mary Kate McDevitt and I were there for hand-lettering night. It was really cool to see how the other girls worked and with what materials and on what surface. We all had different styles so it was cool to see how they work in person. Some worked on one or two special pieces the whole night, while I filled scraps and scraps of different types of paper I brought for the occasion.
Thanks for letting me try your gouache Leah and your pens Mary. Julia and Rachel thanks so much for including me (I’m honored!!) and special thanks to Rudy the dog for not barking when I referred to you as a “he”. You are very lovely and feminine.
I love this AnOther Magazine article on famous couple collaborations featuring: Marina Abramovic and Ulay, Simone de Beauvoir and Jean-Paul Sartre, Lee Krasner and Jackson Pollock and more who “collaborated professionally at some point in their relationship, often with extraordinary results.”
Here’s a little video I made to post on Instagram for Valentine’s Day. I’m late in sharing it here. But really, is it ever too late to share some love?
