92Y Fashion Illustration Class



This summer I'm heading to the Upper East Side to teach fashion illustration to 11-14 year olds at the acclaimed 92nd Street Y and registration is now open! I'm excited, and to be honest a little nervous. Although I've taught before, at Joe Zee's fashion camp in the Hamptons as well as private tutored high schooler seniors prepping for fashion college applications and art tests, this will be the most I've taught and need to prepare at one time. But I'm really excited to work with this particular age group and teach them fashion illustration basics, figure drawing from a live-model, fabric rendering and fashion design while encouraging them to be fearlessly creative.

92Y Fashion Illustration for 11-14 yrs 
1395 Lexington Ave, 3rd Fl.
July 24th - 28th 2017
Price: $595.00

Check out the 92Y website for more details on my summer class and to register. Space is limited.

Last Two Stops | Vogue x Clinique Sketch Tour 2017



My 2017 Vogue x Clinique live-sketching tour has only two stops left! Next week I'll be in Times Square, New York then off to Charlotte, North Carolina. This tour has been quite different from previous years, as this time around I was asked to incorporate Crayola crayons into the mix to celebrate Clinique's limited edition Crayola lipsticks. Its fun to switch it up sometimes and take on a challenge, and believe me drawing fashion illustrations with crayons is a challenge! This is also the first time on these sketching tours that they've partnered me with a fashion blogger cohost who was local to each city. I've had such a good time meeting these social media style stars and the friends and family that turn out to see them.
As usual, the custom illustrations are a gift with purchase and on a first come basis, so I suggest arriving early to ensure you get one! You'll also receive a Vogue coloring book (which I'm kind of obsessed with) and Clinique makeup consultation. In New York I'll be joined by Linsi Lane of So Lindsi (shown above, middle) and in Charlotte Lauren Cobb Steele of LC Steele. I hope you'll join us and I look forward to meeting and sketching more of you at these the last two sketching-tour stops:

New York City
Sephora Times Sq. 
Friday, March 24th
5:00 PM - 7:00 PM
1500 Broadway

Charlotte, NC

Gotham: Custom Sketch Shopping Event | Press



The spring issue of Gotham magazine hit newsstands and features a recent event where I live-sketched custom fashion illustrations of party guests! The event was for Gotham x Lands' Ends at Lands' End latest Soho pop-up shop, with proceeds from the evening benefiting the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. I've live-sketched countless magazine events but my photo, in addition to my fashion illustrations, landing in the magazine is a first!
In addition to the Lands' End team guests included Gotham Editor-In-Chief Samantha Yanks (shown above, bottom right) who's daughter you may remember I previously sketched and Publisher Lynn Scotti Kassar (bottom left.) It was a wonderful event with quite a chic crowd that resulted in fun fashion illustrations the guests adored. Its always exciting to see my work in print but as a born and bred New Yorker, to have it appear in Gotham is truly a proud pinch-me moment!

Vogue x Clinique Live-Sketching Event | Saks



The next stop on my Vogue x Clinique sketching tour is my home, New York, NY! This Thursday I'll be live-sketching custom fashion illustrations at Saks Fifth Avenue with Vogue and Clinique. Joining me at this event is my friend and fellow blogger Lisa of Mind Body Swag! We're celebrating the Clinique Crayola limited edition lipsticks so I of course, I'm incorporating crayons into my sketches! To my surprise the crayons have lent themselves well to fashion illustrations over the past few weeks events and actually really work nicely in shading elements like fur and short hair, both shown above in this weeks invite. The look I drew here is inspired by DVF's latest collection, shown two days ago at NYFW.

Vogue x Clinique Fashion Illustration Tour 2017



I'm so excited to share the first 3 cities of my 2017 sketching tour with Vogue and Clinique! This tour I'll be using a new drawing medium, visiting a bunch of new cities, and giving new Vogue coloring books out in addition to my custom illustrations. We're celebrating the launch of Clinique Crayola limited-edition lipsticks, so I've been asked to use, what else but Crayola crayons to create my custom sketches! I have to admit its been a while since my days of coloring with crayons but if you follow me on Insta stories or any of my social media, you know I've been busy experimenting with them all week. In the beginning I was solely using the crayons but I've found mixing them together with some traditional fashion illustration tools produces the best results, as I did on the sketch shown here.
Today I'm off to Texas because the tour kicks off this Saturday down in Dallas. And next week I'll be live-sketching in Houston, Michigan, and Los Angeles. It will be 8 stops in all this time around, but in the past they've been known to add a stop or two, so you never know! As of now, I have details for the first 4:
