Inspiration Vacation: Seaside Pastels

I was totally feeling these lovely pastels, they make me think seaside, 195o’s and cupcakes!! Had to make it a bit more my taste though, so I added a nice charcoal grey to ground all those “fluffy” colors (yes I just made that up…wow). This weeks illustrations will center around the beach, pencil skirts, lace and pastels!! Hope you enjoy and feel inspired!!

Tween Style

Ok! so I am taking a little break from this weeks Fall for Shopping theme, to bring you a little something different! These are 3 illustrations I did for a project where we had to draw a different body type (i.e. men, baby, kid, tween, junior, maternity).  I chose to try my had at a tween style illustration, annnnd this is what I came up with…. the first image is my concept board for the three drawings above…they are a little springy but I love the colors even for fall!!

Hope you enjoy!!

Sweaters and denim and scarves, Oh my!

Ok, so it’s monday and most of us are unfortunately back to the usual grind of things…. for me that means school, school and more school! On a happier note, I have finished my first of what I am dubbing my fall into shopping series (clever, I know).

Anways, what you see above is the first illustration I have finished based around that concept board I posted over the weekend.

I hope these fall colors and lovely shopping bags brighten your day and get you excited for this new season!!

Do you have a must have fall staple? I would love to hear about it if you do!!

Inspiration Vacation


WELCOME!!!  This is a new thing I have decided to start doing on a weekly basis… I call it  Inspiration Vacation!! Basically every week on the weekend (which is kind of a mini vacation) I will post some sort of concept or inspiration board (such as the one above), this board will usually have something to do with the next weeks illustration posts! these “boards” could range from an amazing illustration to a clothing style or even simply a chair with a crazy pattern that I am loving for that week!

As you can tell from above, I am really thinking about fall…alot, as in it’s pretty much all I can think about. Here is a look into my days thoughts– sweaters, hoodies, boots, pumpkin patch, pumpkin pie, pumpkin cheesecake, fall leaves, the smell of a toasty fire, and more pumpkins. To sum it all up, I LOVE FALL! yep.  So this week you will see a few illustrations that make me think of fall, and hopefully the collection of stuff above gets you a little excited about that!

Whats your favorite thing about fall?
