Untapped Cities: Alexander McQeen + Doodles

Alexander McQueen was one of my favorite designers. I even saw his Savage Beauty exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 2011. And although he is no longer with us, his vision lives on through his clothing line.

The Alexander McQueen ad in the September issue of Vogue really caught my eye.  (read more)

Untapped Cities: Doodling the City

I had been to the Untapped Cities Headquarters a few times over the past year, But it wasn’t until the middle of the Untapped Cities Staff summer party that it hit me, “the windows would be perfect for me to doodle on!” After some planning, the day came for me to “doodle in the sky”. We captured this timelapse video of my hour and a half doodle session on the windows with jaw dropping views looking West and Uptown along Amsterdam.

Music: “The Healthy One” used with permission by Laura Stevenson & the Cans.Video filmed and edited by Augustin Pasquet and Michelle Young for Untapped New York. Video filmed with a GoPro HD HERO2.

Sketchbook Project 2013

It's that time of year again! Time for me to dust off my art house sketchbook so I am not rushing to finish it January 14th. This year I picked the topic: Chronicle. I know, it's so vague! All the topics are vague this year, atlas, travelogue, dinosaurs, memoir, lists, warnings, etc.

I decided to go with chronicle my engagement and wedding planning. Before you know it April will be here and gone and I will be married. I thought this would be nice to remember the planning process (good and bad).

Here is the first page of my book!

If you want to check out my 2012 Sketchbook Entitled  Along the Line is on the Arthouse Coop website for your viewing pleasure.

UNTAPPED CITIES: Doodles + Chanel

Last week on Untapped Cities

It is that time of year again, the September issue of Vogue and Mercedes Benz Fall Fashion Week! Although I can’t name a designer just by looking at a gown, I look forward to this time of year. Each look that walks down the runway is a work of art, carefully designed and sewn. The looks all together tell a story, much like traditional works of art... (read the rest on Untapped Cities)

I'm Alive!

I just realized I haven't posted a new blog since APRIL! I feel just awful! SORRY! It hasn't been because of lack of work. If anyone knows me I've been a very busy bee. Time just flew by without a second to update you guys.

I am going to try and be more consistent with this blog from now on, because I need to create a better balance between work and marketing/blogging/tweeting.

If you have been keeping up with my Untapped Cities posts or Instagram posts you know I've been doodling on magazine ads lately.

Check out this Alexander McQueen ad I was working on Sunday night:
