Here is a drawing I did to advertise this year's annual local thrift shop fashion show. I apologize about the quality of the scan. Some of the border surrounding the image has been lopped off. The title of the show is the Re-fashion Show to showcase all the wonderful discarded treasures that St. Peters Thrift Shop has to offer.
Now that New York Fashion Week has begun, I've been struck with a premature case of spring fever. I love examining the new collections as the photographs are released from each runway show. Every season, every year, this is my ritual. It is always new, exciting and inspiring!
My favorite shows from the first day are; Nicholas K., Vena Cava, Jen Kao, and Kimberly Ovitz.
All of these designers' collections are extremely wearable and all fit in with my current style and mood.
The looks of Nicholas K. are a modern twist on the styles I wore as a teen in the mid-nineties. The muted tones, slouchy feel, the boots and the attitude are reminiscent of my youth and probably why I love this collection so much. I wish I could wear it now.
Vena Cava sent beautiful wisps of silk down the runway in deeply saturated hues and pretty geometric patterns.
Both the above looks are different takes on the sweater and skirt combo. One is floaty and whimsical, the other has more structure and edge.
I've started a little series of animal illustrations.
This one is a sketch of a baby Fennec Fox. They really do have ginormous ears which just adds to their adorable appeal.
I will post a few more of my animal illustrations soon, and many more fashion illustrations. I have been having trouble getting my camera to communicate to my computer so that I can upload photos of my drawings. When the two (camera & computer) finally come around and decide to be on speaking terms again, I will post my new stuff. Meanwhile, I will try to sort out the issue or get my hands on a scanner.
