I miss fashion Illustration

I realized the other day how much I had been missing my fashion illustrations, with their long legs, similar features, out of proportion bodies and of course my prismacolor markers…. I love them! So I did these…an illustration of a few beautiful girls dressed in Cacharel!

this is up for sale in my Etsy Shop, so feel free to check it out and get these lovely ladies for your home!!

what do you think of the markers? do you prefer this style or the watercolors? I love to hear what you all think!!



Above: Inspiration from the Nerman Museum at Johnson County Community College

Above: My take on the inspiration, I loved the jewel tones of the feathers, and the almost ombre effect from the somewhat translucent pieces of feather. I was also inspired by the handle, with all of the straight lines, it inspired the tiny pleats/gathers in this mini collection! Also, you probably didn’t notice (I think I’m the only crazy one who will) but I have been working on switching up my style a bit (I’m really really realllllly fickle), and so these illustrations might seem a bit different then some others I have done in the past!

Somewhere Across the Horizon

So, I have been having a serious lack of inspiration/motivation over the past few days. I think I may have started about 4 illustrations, only to get about half way in and realize… ew no! So this morning I finally felt a bit more up to the task and I got one done (YAAAYY!!). I used my inspiration vacation¬†post entitled “seaside pastels & charcoal grey” to get me going, but somehow ended up with what appears to be a Grecian inspired look… but I do have to say, I really like it!! I dunno, I kinda feel like the true colors didn’t really transfer through the scan, which always bums me out ūüė¶

Hope you enjoy!!

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!!

Fall Fashionista



Hello again! it’s wednesday and another beautiful day here in good old Kansas, but alas I am stuck in class almost all day…super ugh, but hopefully me and my munchkin can find some time for the park when I’m done!

 I finished this illustration about 2 days ago and am loving her little cape and the talltalltall lavender socks!! on a side note, I had so much fun doing this illustration.. I am so used to only illustrating things I am considering making, that I forgot how good it feels to just let go and not worry about what my sewing skill level is or how is that actually going to work? with this illustration I think I finally was able to just have fun with it and draw an outfit on a whim! and it turned out just how I imagined if not better! 

ps: my doggy baby lilly is getting spayed tomorrow morning! I hope everything goes smoothly… wish us luck!

What do you think of the cape, would you wear it??

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!!

Swimwear in the Fall?!

Let me just say, I am loving this chilly fall weather!!! I swear I wish it was like this everyday! so, on that note, here are some swimsuits haha…. this is a little project I finished last week, and although it’s not swimsuit weather here, I thought they were still fun to look at, enjoy!!!
