past, but as the show progressed I decided I liked these smaller "quickie" sketches and chose to share a this grouping of my top picks. Immediately upon posting them on instagram during the broadcast I got likes and comments from a Vogue editor, top celebrity stylist, and an E! News fashion correspondent, which obviously made me feel good about my decision. Its pretty incredible the power of Instagram and the ability to instantly share work and get feedback in the moment.
Illustrated above above: Reese Witherspoon looking classic and chic in Tom Ford, Gwyneth Paltrow in the perfect pale pink (again) by Ralph and Russo, Jennifer Lopez was a golden goddess in Ellie Saab and Kerry Washington looked beautiful in white in her go-to designer, Miu Miu.
I wish there were more epic red-carpet events like this, because I truly love illustrating a red-carpet moment. Its fashion at its finest which is truly ideal fashion illustration inspiration, for this fashion illustrator at least!

My sketching tour with Vogue and Clinique was without a doubt the highlight of last year and although I posted the invitations, and shared along on Instagram, I never recapped the tour here on Fabulous Doodles. As many do at the start of a new year I've been reflecting and setting new goals, and thinking about what I'd like to focus on in the new year. In doing so I looked back to see what my highlights were. Today I'm starting a "Throwback Thursday" series and looking back on some of my past projects and events that I either want to highlight again, like this Vogue Clinique tour, and some that I have yet to share at all. On this tour throughout the summer and fall I visited five cities, appeared at nine events and live sketched countless custom illustrations of pretty party guests.
Jet setting aside it was so heartwarming meeting Fabulous Doodles readers from around the country and seeing how excited people were to both meet me and have their own custom sketch. Everyone from fans of fashion illustration, to aspiring artists, to fashion bloggers and fashion design students came out. I compiled a little slideshow here to feature a few:
Going on a sketching tour for two powerhouse brands like Vogue and Clinique, and traveling the country with a Vogue Stylist was certainly a career highlight! Hopefully there will be more big events and partnerships to come, but in the mean time I'll be looking back at this post and happily remembering all the people and places I met last year.

It was surreal going with Will, one of my best friends, to this event and getting to be a part of Ella's US album release. We sang along, danced, sipped champagne and laughed the night away. It was the kind of unforgettable night that doesn't come around too often and when that happens I'm always eager to capture it. I also have to say that Ella looked fantastic and you know I love a jumpsuit! Remember this sketch of Vogue stylist Kelen, whom I toured the US with sketching for Vogue and Clinique?
If you haven't yet I highly recommend checking out Ella Henderson. Ghost and Beautifully Unfinished are my two favorites but the whole Chapter One album is great! I'm so excited she's finally here in the states and looking forward to seeing her career soar.
