NEW SEGMENT: BEHIND THE DRAWING

< THE STORIES AND INSPIRATION BEHIND ALL OF MY ILLUSTRATIONS AS WEEKLY POSTS…>

 

  1. LAISSEZ FAIRE

 

This was inspired by the laid back attitude of French girls that I used to meet in the streets.
I super love the fact that even on lazy days, there is still is an element of chic to their outfits.

LAISSEZFAIRE
I’ve actually never met one wearing  that exact outfit, but I wanted to bring the attention to the sexiness they bring compared to the common yoga pants and UGG boots  ( that I’m guilty too)!
The curly unruly hair completes the whole carefree look perfectly!

 

  1. KIERA IN THE RAIN

I drew this in the fall, hence the skirt color, the boots, and the umbrella!  Everyone is so seriously fashionable in fall; hence the very quirky and not so serious look of the girl. It’s raining but Kiera, in her creative outfit (Look at those colorful boots J ),is dancing in the rain, her umbrella closed!

KEIRA IN THE RAIN

 

I added the hat as an ode to another funny sire, Charlie Chaplin ;)!!!
And what about the name Kiera? Well, I drew her while watching Anna Karenina hahaha!

 

  1. THE MASSAI QUEEN

This was inspired a picture of a massai woman adorned with colorful beads and a shaved head! She had so much allure and elegance, just like a queen! I had to give her a cape!!!!
