National Lipstick Day

Sadly, I can’t seem to find a lipstick that works on me. Actually, I do like a subtle nude color but I mean I can’t find an orange, red, berry or pink that works. I always feel clownish. My son and husband don’t like when I wear it either because it leaves smooch marks on them. I love the way lipstick looks on others though and I especially love painting it in watercolor. Here’s a flashback to when I used it to hand-letter this special cover for Vogue Nippon. And here’s another flashback illustration featuring lips I posted to Instagram.


Seventeen Magazine: August Issue

I had so much fun creating these illustrations for the latest issue of Seventeen Magazine. As a teen I was a subscriber. So it was such a blast coming back to it.

Woolmark competition winner: Tanya Taylor

Look4finalLook5 final

I was honored when Tanya Taylor reached out for me to create illustrations of her designs to be judged in the International Woolmark Prize event. The Council of Fashion Designers of America serves as Woolmark’s official nominating body in the U.S. The USA nominees were Chris Gelinas, Kaelen, Nellie Partow, Novis, and Tanya Taylor for womenswear.

The finalists are asked to show sketches for a Merino wool capsule collection. 

Tanya’s team gave me rough sketches with images of the fabric swatches and pantones for all colors and I had to illustrate them as finished looks on models for judging. What a pleasure! I love the collection. Guess what?! Tanya won. I’m not at all surprised. Congratulations Tanya and team.
