Here she is! My first Paper Friend.

Paper Friends is a new post I want to share with you guys. Each week I’ll introduce one of my real life friends to you… and tell you a litttttle bit about them. I figured since they are pretty cool (and eclectic), they’d make for some interesting subjects. Plus, there’s somethin about illustrating someone you know so well that makes for an interesting drawing.

This is, you guessed it, Melissa (Meli for short!), one of my closest friends. Meli is a visual merchandise designer for Estée Lauder in NYC. All those makeup displays you see on counters in the stores, yup, she designs those. Pretty cool if you ask me. Once she dressed up as a giant Estée Lauder night cream.

I have my fair share of lipsticks thanks to this lady… and I’m obsessed with her Anthropologie floral embroidered shorts!

So what do you think? Do you want to meet more of my friends?!

  1. This is a really cool idea, and I like how you injected so much personality into the drawing. I would totally like to see more of your friends in paper form!

  2. Hello Melisa,
