I have worked with Marie Claire Magazine many, many, many times so when they hit me up to collaborate on a special Timberland coloring lookbook for the April issue of course I was thrilled. Go grab the issue on your news stand if you’re not already a subscriber and get coloring.
In 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.
It’s here, the finale of the Ready-to-Wear Fall/Winter 2016 shows. I’ve done nearly 20 illustrations for The CFDA portfolio. Tonight I’m painting Marc Jacobs. So excited. Here are some looks I got to yesterday and today: DVF, Cynthia Rowley and Rachel Zoe.
How gorgeous is this Paul Andrew shoe? The details took a while to paint and I was wearing duck boots while painting it…but I’m still swooning.
Here’s everything I’ve done so far. I have a show to paint tonight and one tomorrow. I may squeeze in some I missed as well…stay tuned.
