Blogger portrait no.2

Introducing: blogger portrait no.2!! I decided to illustrate this beautiful picture from "Karla's Closet", just another one of her many amazing outfit posts. She is wearing a cotton vintage dress in this one and I love the delicate blue detail at the top (and at the bottom shown in the other photos) so pretty! I love her blog, she really knows how to pose in order to showcase the best features of what she is wearing and how cute is her pixie hairstyle?

Rainbow Makeup

It has been quite a while since my last post...the little guy (my baby boy) has been requiring my undivided attention these days, so I haven't had much time for myself. However, I still managed to slip in this quick illustration. I seem to be drawn to horizontal lines lately...can you tell?

Stay inside the lines

I opened up my May 2011 issue of Elle Canada today and saw an editorial spread about Jean Paul Gaultier and how he is celebrating 35 years of fashion. His retrospective is being shown at the Montreal museum  of fine arts. Canadian Model Coco Rocha got to try on a bunch of his most creative pieces and this is one of them. (It wasn't so easy to stay inside the lines with my paint brush on this one!) I love how Coco always comes up with  such interesting poses, even though you can't really tell that it's her in this photo.

Lime Crime & Lilac

I found this picture here and just had to attempt to draw it. It didn't quite turn out the way I wanted and I think the model in the original photo is much more beautiful, but sometimes my pencil has a mind of its own!! I think it still looks pretty though. Hope you like it too!

Shades of summer

This illustration is from the April 2011 issue of Elle Italia. Czech model Hana Soukupova graces the cover and poses with plenty of funky shades. So fun! Reminds me that summer is just around the corner. 

Blogger portrait no.1

For my first blogger portrait, I decided to draw Sabby V of MissWorkinGirl. She has such great style and I love her blog because she always comes up with great ways to look ultra stylish and professional all at once in the workplace. Swing by her blog and see for yourself! What is your favourite fashion blog?

Oldies but goodies

Here are a few of my favourite illustrations that I have done in the past few years. The first one is an illustration of model Amber Valetta from an ad back in 2001. I drew it for a watercolour class that I took in college. Since I love music from the 80's, I just had to draw Cyndi Lauper in the 80's in the second photo. The third one is from a United Colours of Benetton ad from 2006.   I love the colours in this one. The fourth is of model Jessica Stam (you will see more illustrations of her soon, she is one of my favourite models) and the last one is of Alicia Keys also back in 2001. Hope you like them! Stop by again soon, new illustrations to come!

Welcome to my blog! I love art in all forms. I have drawn and painted photos from fashion magazines for as long as I can remember. I never leave a boutique without asking for a copy of their latest catalogue (l collect them!) This blog is a place where I can share my love for fashion, illustration and photography (among other things) and showcase my creativity. Stay tuned for more of my watercolour illustrations... Hope you enjoy!
