Live-Sketching Custom Fashion Illustrations for Figleaves

I recently spent a day at the Bryant Park Hotel sketching editors during the spring 2014 press preview. The amazing team from Ann Magnin, Inc. presented the Figleaves spring collection of swimwear and lingerie to editors from top magazines and blogs throughout the day by appointment only. As a gift/favor, I was there to live-sketch them so each editor could take home a custom fashion illustration of themselves.
All the ladies were so chic and sketchable in their layered winter looks of leather, chunky knits, and cute short skirts with tights. It was great to chat with them as I sketched them, everyone was so excited about their custom illustrations which I suppose was a nice little surprise in the middle of their work day. Many of the editors even whipped out their phones (as shown above) and promptly shared their custom sketch with their social media followers!
All in all sketching at the NYC press preview for, spending the day in a penthouse at the Bryant Park Hotel overlooking the Empire State Building and Bryant Park and its ice skaters, and meeting these fabulous women certainly made for a wonderful day of work for this illustrator.
