Sketches of Marchesa Fall 2014 Gowns.
If you follow me on instagram, you know that I’m most inspired to paint in the late evening hours. Maybe it’s from the years of staying up late painting as a kid, or after work when I had a separate day job, or the silence of the world fast asleep, but those midnight hours are some of my favorite to dream…
Back in January, I embarked on my first trip out west for an experience that unearthed many beloved childhood memories…
Waking up in sunny, 85 degree Los Angeles during the peak of winter was not a bad way to start a workday. Windows down, we headed to SoapBox Films bright and early to attend the filming of The Muppet’s latest commercial featuring Subway to promote their new movie, Muppets Most Wanted in theaters March 21st.
There’s no other way to describe stepping onto the set other than dreamlike. The real Kermit and Miss Piggy (who had her own dressing area), right there in front of me!
Between the artist who was crafting the most beautiful Subway sandwiches for the film, and the incredible Muppets team (and beautiful set), there was plenty of inspiration to take in. As the team filmed the scenes, I set out to capture a few moments in my sketchbook…
