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