underground-gourmet

I loved reading on Kottke that master illustrator Milton Glaser co-wrote a column for New York magazine called The Underground Gourmet about where to find cheap-but-good food in NYC. The above column from the October 27, 1975 issue, reviews a ramen restaurant in Midtown called Sapporo that is still somehow around! How cool.

Also, if you missed it, Refinery 29 did a feature on me and my home. Check it out and have a beautiful weekend!

Refinery 29 house tour

August 4, 2014

image-1  I was super honored when Refinery 29 asked to do a feature on me and my home. I’m due with my baby in a month so was a bit insecure about stepping in front of the camera but did it anyhow! We’ve been living here for about 5 months and it’s a work in progress. I think homes always are. They shift and change according to the inhabitants needs, wants and of course the flow of time. Here’s the feature, check it out!

Brvtvs Jewelry at JCrew

July 31, 2014

Caroline

I’m so excited for my dear friend Caroline Ventura, designer and maker of of Brvtvs jewelry. Her latest collaboration is with JCrew. She did a stunning collection of rings and the most perfect bar earrings.

I’ve been Caroline’s biggest fan since the moment I met her. She’s a true talent and one of the most kind hearted people I know. I’m lucky enough to be able to use her as a model from time to time if I need to do an illustration of someone stunning in a certain pose.

If I were getting married again, this gold ring would be my wedding band without a doubt. I currently wear these bar earrings, and this Claudia necklace nearly every single day.

Check out JCrew’s feature on Caroline.

Mugler final
Ellery final
Puglisi final

As an illustrator I always consider it an honor when brands I admire come to me for work. I have worked with Refinery 29 a number of times and each time consider it a privilege and great fun. This time they hit me up to illustrate looks (sneak peek above) from 6 Labels That Are Redefining “Luxury“. Check out the story and of course feel free to pin any of the illos you like. I pinned them to two boards today, fashion and style as well as maquette portfolio.

NYO7-28_FirstDates (1)-2
I had fun illustrating this story for New York Observer (July 28th issue) about 50,000 First Dates: Online Dating Makes Finding a Partner in NYC Harder Than Ever. I agree, dating is hard. I’m so beyond lucky and thrilled to have found my husband/soulmate in this sea of people. Turns out we met at camp when we were 5 years old and only discovered this when we came across a group photo from that summer. Small world after all. Despite how hard dating can be in NYC, I do believe if you really really want to meet someone and are looking for a true relationship, you will find it even if it does take 50K dates.
