Pumpkin Spice Latte Anyone?

Just a little prismacolor pencil sketch to celebrate Autumn and all things Pumpkin Spice!  Our weather in Southern California has been so hot.  Now that it has finally cooled off a bit, I'm starting to look at my winter sweaters.  It hasn't cooled off enough to actually put them on, but I can dream can't I?  So I am dreaming of a little Pumpkin Spice Latte on a crisp Autumn morning.  Happy Friday everyone!!

This Fashion Illustration Print is available in two sizes; 5x7 inches and 8x10 inches in my Etsy Shop

Dwell Magazine Modern Sketchbook With Tombow Dual Brush Pens

The first sketch in my new sketchbook.  A very sweet friend gave me a Modern sketchbook by Dwell Magazine.  (Thanks Roberta!)  It's so fun to open up a new sketchbook and start drawing.  For this sketch I used pencil and Tombow Dual Brush Pens.  These pens are great.  I use a plastic plate as a palette.  I put down two different colors on the plate and use the blender marker to soften a color.

Zoe Kravitz's Amazing Dior Dress At The Emmy's

There were a lot of amazing dresses at the Emmy's last night, but one of my favorites was the Dior rainbow ombre feathered dress worn by Zoe Kravitz.  She looked lovely.  She and her boyfriend, Karl Glusman, looked so stylish together.  I wish I could pull off her hairstyle!

I usually paint in watercolor, but this time I used acrylic.  However, I sort of used it in a watercolor way, by adding water and creating some washes.

New York Fashion Week Sketch

I'm having so much fun following New York Fashion Week!  It's so exciting to see all the new collections.  I just had to sketch this unique dress from Alexander Wang's Spring 2018 collection.  It brings a whole new meaning to a "shirt dress"!

Monday Coffee Art, Fashion Illustrations, Fashion Sketches and Fall Fashion

I'm longing for cool Fall weather so I can wear all my great Fall fashions and enjoy a warm cup of coffee on a crisp Autumn morning.  Since I'm in Southern California that is, alas, but a dream.  We are sweltering out here.  We have cooled off a little, it's not 90 degrees anymore, just 84 .  So while I am waiting , I painted a Fall Fashion Girl instead.

While I was in my love of coffee mood, I painted this little semi- customizable print.  You can choose which box you want checked on your print.  Or you can request different words.  And this print comes in two colors:  The white cup with pink lid, or the coral cup with white lid.
