Dyeing eggs as a kid was (obviously) my favorite part of Easter. In fact, I’m pretty sure I thought the entire holiday was about the colorful eggs and the mysterious bunny that crept into my room while I was sleeping.
I haven’t made them for years, so I decided it was time to pull out my
dyes paints and glitter and get to work. Of course, the eggs ended up being completely neon. They certainly brighten up my fridge!
Anyway, I hope you all have a fab Easter weekend! Don’t eat too many peeps…
P.S. I’d love to see the eggs you’re making! tweet me pics here!
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?!
I haven’t done an illustration like this in a while (kind of reminds me of her)… but after seeing this photo of Lindsey Wixson, I suddenly got the urge! You really can’t go wrong with a Tim Walker image. Lovin her ruby red dress, and those nude pumps paired with sheer knee highs. Plus, that hair is killer. Right?
I’m always in awe of how much magic is in Tim’s photos.
