This beauty was a commission done for a chic customer in Washington, DC. Coincidentally, I am babysitting a Maltese for two weeks, starting yesterday. She seems to want to sit at my drawing desk in my chair at all times. Maybe she is secretly a little artist?

Notion Fifty-Nine: The Golden Girl – Jess Keys

jess_instagram jess When I first discovered Jess on Instagram I instantly followed her account, ever so impressed by many of her posts on food, fashion and fun that seemed to effortlessly and stylishly roll with the seasons. She is the creator of the successful www.thegoldengirlblog.com. (Definitely worth bookmarking on your laptop!)

Jess is also Fashion Editor for www.theeverygirl.com another great blog which does home tours, offers business and fashion advice and much more.

Long story short, I ended up illustrating a photo of her in my signature “one eyebrow” style. It was such an honor and she was/is SO much fun to work with! For someone who has a very impressive resume under her belt she is extremely humble and down-to-earth.

I loved the finished product so much that I asked Jess if I could make prints of it (her outfit is simple yet fabulous!) You may purchase the print for sale here. As well, check out Jess’ very sweet blog post featuring my work here.   Happy Tuesday Everyone!

Here are a couple of recent sketches that I have completed. The first was just for fun, I sketched a model I saw on the runway and added my own flair to the dress.

The second sketch is one I completed a couple of days ago for a customer who designs jewelry. It was a commission for me to draw a fashion illustration of her wearing some of her pieces. She will be putting it on her business cards which is a simply brilliant idea!
