New York, NY You're Invited! Live-Sketching for Vogue & Clinique

The past three months I've been on an incredible sketching tour across the US for Vogue and Clinique and this Friday is the ninth and final event of the tour right here in New York at Sephora Times Square.
I'm sure it's not the last time I'll be live-sketching for Vogue but it is the last time for this particular collaboration with Clinique celebrating their new Smart Serum where not only do guests get a custom illustration but a coordinating custom smartphone case as well. If you'd like to join:

Sephora Times Square 
1500 Broadway New York, NY 10036
Friday Oct 24th 2014
 5:00 PM - 8:00 PM

This particular sketch and case was made a few weeks back at one of the first events in Seattle, Washington. I'm looking forward to seeing what sketch-worthy fall chic looks my fellow New Yorkers will be bring this week. Hope to see, and sketch you, there!

Fabulous Doodles Inspiration No.3, Audrey Schilt

Today for Ralph Lauren's birthday I'd like to spotlight one of my favorite illustrators and designers, Audrey Schilt. For 22 years Audrey worked [and sketched] alongside Ralph Lauren eventually becoming Creative Director of Collection. I've been a longtime admirer of her work and after featuring her here on Fabulous Doodles a few times I'm happy to say that we've become online pals. Her gorgeous sketches continually inspire me to loosen up, play with figure positions, draping, light and shadows. If you're not familiar with her work I strongly suggest you click over to her site and check out this post from my archives of Audrey's Fashion Institute of Technology retrospective nearly 5 years ago!

Golden Gallery

This week I've been having fun styling some of my favorite bridal sketches onto this amazing gallery picture frame wallpaper from Graham and Brown. This year they're celebrating the 10 year anniversary of their iconic frame paper and in celebration have released the print in new color ways including this sophisticated metallic gold. This wallpaper creates an instant gallery wall in any space and is fantastic for a working art studio. To compliment the white and gold pattern I chose to adorn it with my bridal sketches, prints and businesscards from my Brooklit Bride shop.
To see the other limited edition color combinations now available as well as the paper used in a variety of different room set ups click on over to Graham and Brown.
