Last week I live-sketched custom fashion illustrations at a private party for Vogue and La Mer at Bloomingdales Manhattan flagship. I've admired and occasionally indulged in La Mer products for years so needless to say I was thrilled when my friends at Vogue asked if I was available for this intimate event. La Mer Executive Director Clyde Johnson (shown above with his custom illustration) and Vogue Market Stylist Cara Crowley hosted the party which included cocktails, hors d'oeuvres, an array of La Mer products and my custom fashion illustrations of all the gorgeous guests as personal gifts for each of them to bring home. It was another fun Vogue event and I hope you enjoyed this little sampling of photos and sketches from it.

Custom fashion illustrations as Valentines were my month long project last month commissioned by Sunglass Hut and Ray-Ban and today I'm sharing a few of my favorites. Sunglass Hut gifted fashion bloggers and style influencers with frames from their newest collection then asked each recipient to strike a pose giving a kiss-face. The photos were sent to me and I sketched them up into custom illustrations that they framed and mailed to each influencer. The first illustration was of their spokesmodel, Georgia May Jagger (sketch shown above as well as styled in my studio in a sneak-peek photo I instagrammed a few weeks ago also shown at the bottom of this post.) Her wavy blond hair, bright fuchsia lips and round tortoise frames made ideal sketch inspiration.
Drawing while taking inspiration from fashion bloggers is always great, as they have such unique looks and are always so well styled and perfectly posed. And when working on a project like this, I'm often introduced to new ones to follow like the women sketched above: Urban Bush BabesTakenya and Cipriano Quann, Nicole Alyse and Jessi Afshin, The Darling Detail.
