A Tiny Taste

From the Archives

8 Aug

These three drawings are ones I did ages ago—I drew the last one in 1998 when I was 17. They were three of my early-ish drawings that I was (and still am) extremely proud of.

Bouquet Toss

18 Jul

I recently did a wedding drawing (and a couple variations) for a good friend of mine. Rather than doing a standard wedding portrait, I wanted to capture one of the bride’s favorite moments. This is what I came up with.

The final color drawing I gave the bride was slightly different, but not by much. After I scanned this in, I began tinkering with the drawing a bit more and gave her the final originals in both black and white and color so she could choose which she preferred. I really love how it turned out, and, most importantly, she does too.

Turquoise Room

13 Jun

Ever since I saw this interior in the December 2010 issue of Lonny, I knew I wanted to draw it. I can’t get over that beautiful wall color.

Here’s my illustrated version in three parts:

Drawn from Memory

26 May

I did this drawing quickly one evening recently. I was reliving how fantastic it was seeing Cherry Jones in Mrs. Warren’s Profession in October (I’ve gushed about it previously.), and I felt the need to create a visual memory of it. Besides the brilliant acting, I was entranced by the gorgeous costumes. This was one of my favorites.

If you want to see some more behind-the-scenes images of the production of the play, go here. I loved seeing how Cherry got into the many layers of her period dresses, applied her stage makeup, and put on those phenomenal wigs and hats!

Dreaming of a Desk

7 Apr

I’ve had this image in my head for awhile now, so I spent some time drawing this in my sketchbook to give my ideas visual form—and make them ever so slightly more real. It’s the artsy space that I’m dreaming of having some day.

(I’m still obsessed with the West Elm parsons desk in polished white. It’s probably more on my brain than ever after I saw it again in a store last weekend. Simple! So much desk space! The finish! Etc!)

A Colorful Welcome

5 Apr

I love coming upon a door in an unexpected color, shape, or combination of both. The burst of energy at an entrance is a lovely welcome.
