Chromat

Chromat

Did you check out all the looks at the Met Gala? I’m wondering why everyone didn’t wear Chromat for ManusxMachina- Fashion in an Age of Technology.
I felt like whipping up an illustration this morning in homage to Becca McCharen’s amazing work that’s inspired by architecture, urban design and structural experiments for the human body. So innovative and boundary pushing. I loved that the models on the NYFW runway weren’t all rail thin and white.
How refreshing!

Daily Paintings

daily drawing3In my dream world I’d have the perfect amount of work at all times. I’d work on one thing at a time followed by a brief pause and then another. Reality is different. I’m very very grateful and lucky to have a lot of work on my plate. I stacked the deck that way actually, by giving myself personal projects that often lead to a commercial end like my books. I love my work and believe that I’m always growing and learning from it. However I do think it’s important to do work without a commercial end. It leaves some room for experimentation or at least a lack of self-consciousness about everything being perfect for the client. Sometimes I only have a few minutes of free time during the work day and I allow myself to do some abstractions or cut paper. Other times I feel like portraying the figure but perhaps using some unusual color palettes and loose brushstrokes. I share some of these paintings on instagram in their naked, un-edited form and there’s something cathartic and honest about that experience for me.
