Christmas Gifts!

I hope you and yours had a most marvvvelous ou-liday! I did and this year I made my dearest friends Christmas gifts. I love giving unexpected, funny, memorable and personal gifts. My attempt to recreate their beauty was thE hardest drawing challenge I'm ever attempted! 
1)Heather Goldberg is a Jewelry/womenswear designer/artist and loves thug rap as much as I do. Checkout her beautifuuul jewelry here!!
2)Regina Yazdi is one of my favorite illustrators and,like me, was born with a pencil in her hand. Her work bembodies the past and the future of fashion illustration. I just realized how hard/fun it is to draw fellow illustrators. 
3)Theo Moysis is a fresh faced fashion designer living in New York and is currently designing at Tommy (the new hipper subdivision of Tommy Hilfiger). Like me, he loves to hunt down/share new music.

Inspiration: Erika Stevenson

These days it seems like everyone has 'one of those cameras' with the vintage feel and the slightly saturated colors. Unlike a lot of the photographers on Flickr/Tumblr/blogs/everywhere online, Erika Stevenson's photographs seemed more like art than a just another beautiful/bland photograph. I love how some of the landscapes/compositions in her photographs look a bit one dimensional. 
Checkout more of he work here.


I've posted music videos by before and their latest interview/live performance with Yelawolf is amazing.  He talks a bit about how he finally decided to stand up, make his own luck and put his passions into action. love hearing these kinda stories and seeing creatives in action. Thanks again

In the Works..

Currently, I'm working like crazy on new pieces and I couldn't be happier. I rarely have 'artist block' when I'm in the middle of a piece but when I am faced with this 'problem' I like to work through it and work on another piece or start an entirely start one. At the moment, I'm doing just that and have 3 different pieces in the works. I hate rushing a piece and prefer to be struck with a clear vision of how to complete it. When my vision is clear, the bringing the piece to life seems easy. 
Music is one of my favorite remedies for 'artist block. I love this album I just found produced by SoulChef! The beats are pretty fresh annnd it's FREE!
                       My favorite tracks are 4, 6 and 8.Check it out!

This Week's Funny Vimeo Find


I love finding films and creatives on Vimeo. I just came across Victor Quina's work and I'm loving his videos! They're funny in their simplistic situations and the characters are perfectly cast. Because the storyline revolves around the life and times of a pilgrim, these two are perfect films to kick start November...22 days till turkey day..

Festive Quick Sketches

Along with my obsession with black and white cinema of the 1930's and 40's I also love contemporary and 'old' LA film noir short stories and film. Raymond Chandler is novelist and screenwriter whose stylistic writings greatly influence the film noir genre. That's why any girl with good sense would chose to hang with him on a deserted island...for sure. 
 These are just some quick sketches/illustrations straight out of my sketchbook from this past week. When I'm not at my desk (working on my watercolor pieces) I love playing with my black pen in my sketchbook.
It's the week of Halloween!
                                         I have nooo idea what I'm gonna be for Halloween...

Tracks I'm loving at the moment..

Quick Sketches

 Although I love creating large scale pieces, about 75% of my drawings are resting in my sketchbook/s. I'm going to start to post my 'quick quick sketches' as often as I can/create them. I love to sketch the lovely ladies that I see (on the web) that are photographed coming out of fashion shows and hanging out on their city streets. 
Below are just some fun quick sketches of lil ladies stretching/posing out of my sketchbook...

More are on the way!
Stay tuned!
