SHOP for orgs

3It’s been a very rough week. I don’t have much to say except that I stand for love, equality, peace, the health of the planet, the safety of children and the families that raise them and I’m scared that so many people don’t hold these things up as essential to our country.

Sad to say that I have been complacent. I had hoped that a grown up with the above values would take care of us. I now realize that I can’t just sit around expecting to be taken care of and my neighbors too. I feel more than ever that we can work together to support what we value. I have been talking to so many women who feel the same (men too) and I see people figuring out what to focus on and how to work together. It’s very heartening.

I know there’s a lot to do but using my art to promote what I care about feels right. Going forward I’ll donate 50% of all shop proceeds to organizations who need support. Planned Parenthood, Everytown for Gun Safety and Every Mother Counts are just a few I plan to donate to. If you like my art and want it in your life, you will be helping me contribute. This site also has a great list of organizations to support.

I’m beyond excited share the Prinkshop lookbook, shop and site images I creative directed and produced with an amazing all female team including: Founder: Pamela Bell, Photographer: Meredith Jenks, Hairstylist: Rubi Jones, Stylist: Jessica Roberts, Makeup/model: Mical Klip, and models: Sasha Frolova, Manu Kondo and Tamar Sagre-Lewis (via Surface Models).

Prinkshop is the brainchild of one of the Kate Spade founders, Pamela Bell. Pamela’s passion for social justice, freedom of speech, humanity, art and graphic design lead her to found Prinkshop. She believes business can be profitable and socially beneficial. Prinkshop identifies issues that need to be addressed; the bold, text-based graphic products feature issues ranging from sex trafficking to education, homelessness, and marriage equality. Prinkshop finds trailblazing organizations working in each of the issues, partners with them, and donates 30% of profits to their causes. Everything is produced in the US.

Check out Prinkshop’s latest collaboration with Cara Delevingne and UN organization Girl Up. (more…)

Marchesa illustrations: NYFW

Marchesa invited me backstage during NYFW to capture my perspective before the models hit the runway. Their gowns are utterly magical. The details are beyond exceptional. Models floated around in ombre toile and shimmering gold. It was something out of A Midsummer Night’s Dream rather than a rainy night in NYC. Anyway, I illustrated these images for them to share on Instagram.

Check out some work in progress on my ig, here and here.
