Read an interview I did with The Arcadia Online here.
Reinterpreting the lastest cover for Cultured Magazine, featuring the incredible Thelma Golden.
Harper’s Bazaar en Español commissioned me to create an illustration of their beloved and legendary Diana Vreeland…
The final selected illustration for Harper’s Bazaar en Español August issue.
I worked on my first fashion editorial just last year…and I loved it so much that I’m back for more! This time creating abstract watercolor backdrops. What began as a casual coffee conversation with my two friends, Misha and Debbie, quickly manifested into a fashion editorial; Fade to Black, in Tatler Hong Kong’s April issue.
Last year, Jordan approached me about illustrating her new book, Ramshackle Glam: The New Mom’s Haphazard Guide to (Almost) Having It All. Here’s a look at the process behind the cover illustration…
Illustrating a book about being a new mom was a a new type of challenge… of course, I know absolutely nothing about being a new mom! We wanted to convey both Jordan’s quirky-glam personality, as well as something any new mom could relate to in one image.
My first draft illustration (above) seemed like a fine idea to me, until we quickly realized that storing a baby bottle and extra shoes in the same place is less than sanitary. (Whoops!)
I experimented with various perspectives, and various props… trying to figure out which viewpoint captured the message in the most instantaneous way.
and alas, we found the look we wanted…
Change the bag a bit… and voilá!
Check out the book for more than 20 illustrations scattered throughout!
Honored to have my work featured alongside many great talents in Taschen’s upcoming publication of Illustration Now! Fashion by Julius Wiedemann.

Being an illustrator, it isn’t everyday that you are involved in a fashion editorial shoot… so this was something new for me. It flooded my mind with ideas! One of my favorite projects to date… bringing fashion photography together with an illustrated world. Not to mention the inspiring team that brought this all together. It’s a magical thing when a group of people come together and just get it!
Join us on an illustrated adventure in this month’s Genlux Magazine…
Throughout the past few weeks I’ve been working on a project for Genlux Magazine’s April issue! Daniel Castro and I teamed up to create a spring editorial story combining his fashion photography with my illustrations… a fantastical world that I’ll share with you tomorrow.
Here’s a look at some of my process illustrations from the collaboration. It’s amazing to look back and see how much things change from start to finish…
I started out with some rough story boards of our initial concept… it’s not hard for me to get my imagination to run wild with a world full of hot air balloons!
Then the world started to come to life with color…
Just wait until you see the styling magic that Kelly created…
There may have been a furry friend involved too…
Check back tomorrow morning to see the editorial take shape… Or take a look at Genlux magazine’s April issue, out in print tomorrow!
Head over to Rue today, and check out my illustrations in their latest Texas inspired issue!
Illustration of Paloma from La Dolce Vita.
I was so thrilled to see the feature on Erika’s favorite Boston shops… there’s a few I need to check out! Boston is small, but it definitely has a few hidden gems.
Oh… and this issue’s cover is so whimsical!
