#PinPoinTED

If there’s anyone who’s excited about the upcoming fall season, it’s me. This summer has been wonderful (I’m currently ending the summer by traveling on an #AdventureInSeptember), but fall is, above all, my absolute favorite. Between the pumpkin infused everything, the cool air, and finally being able to layer, I consider it a fresh new beginning as it comes around each year.

I’ve teamed up with Ted Baker to pull together my favorite AW14 looks from their new collection (which is sparkly and fun!). Follow my #PinPoinTED board here, and create your own look on a pinterest board for a chance to win an $800 shopping spree!

Enter to win, here.

Skillshare III

LadyInOscar_1
Just in time for New York fashion week, I’ve launched a new online class at Skillshare, PaperFashion: Telling a Story Through Fashion Illustration!
As my follow up to Basic Watercolors: Painting with PaperFashion and Illustrate Your Favorite Runway Looks with Watercolors, I will lead you through the process of illustrating fashion figures within a scene. The class includes short video lessons (total 45 minutes) and a project that challenges my students to paint and share their own whimsical fashion scene inspired by a fashion week dress of their choice.

I’m blown away the more than 3,500 people have taken my first two classes… and it’s incredibly inspiring to watch your projects grow and progress throughout the class. I’m so proud of the fashion illustration community that’s been created within Skillshare!
When you take the class, be sure to tag your projects on social media with #PaperFashionClass – I love to scroll through them an comment!
