“From the White Horse, with Love” is a short fiction zine self-published by two friends of mine from New York: Richard Keeshan and the super talented Danielle Blumstein, my roommate when I lived in the East Village.
I did all the illustrations.
The stories are great and the project is very, very cool. I love working on collaborations like this. Always a pleasure.
If anyone is interested, I have a few issues to give away. Message me here and I’ll get in touch!
Lots of Love from Deutschland.
This is my new favorite film.
I have been a fan of Woody Allen’s for many years. I think I’ve pretty much watched everything he’s ever done. He can do no wrong in my eyes (please note that I’m talking about his work here, not his personal life).
Anyway, Midnight in Paris is so delightful I can’t recommend it enough! The storyline is great and the cast is impeccable. Without giving too much away, I particularly loved Corey Stoll (from Law and Order) as Hemingway. I don’t watch much TV so I didn’t even know who he was. Great performance though, just the right mixture of ego, suffering and comedy. Typical Woody Allen material, really. – If you haven’t seen it, go watch it now!

And on the seventh day… there was no rest whatsoever. Not quite yet! My 7th day of London Fashion Week was dedicated to Lako Bukia.

Bold contrasts and big splashes of red were everywhere, so the illustrations pretty much came into existence by themselves! I couldn’t wait to get started and decided to really get into the spirit of the clothes and go all the way with the reds and blacks. It was fun and completely different from my usual girlie drawings and soft palette.
Check out the complete Lako Bukia review in Amelia’s Magazine.
Stay tuned for my final day of London Fashion Week illustration! Tomorrow!
After much playing around with illustrator, it’s back to the good old pen/pencil on white paper combination. It’s my favorite medium and I can’t stay away from it for too long.
My fourth assignment for London Fashion Week was Basso & Brooke.
Fashion writer Akeela Bhattay sent me some gorgeous pictures of the runway…

… and I started scribbling straight away.
I had a great time drawing these two girls. I loved the dresses. Gorgeous prints and colors, perfect summer dresses, really, and great inspiration too. Also, I realized that I haven’t done much pencil work lately and really missed it so I just went for it. It was one definitely of my favorite Fashion Week assignments so far.

Stay tuned for Day 5 of London Fashion Week!
♥ My second book collaboration has finally come through!
Fashion Africa, the new book about ethical fashion design from Africa by designer and writer Jacqueline Shaw, launches tonight in London. This is unbelievably exciting and I think Jacqueline did an amazing job.
I was asked to illustrate a number of different labels for the book. They were very exciting and from all over Africa, from Nigeria, to Kenya to Sierra Leone, etc. I really got into it so I ended up contributing with A LOT of illustrations.
Here are some of the pieces I did:
♥ Jewel by Lisa (from Nigeria)
♥ Suno NY (Kenyan fabrics/New York label)
♥ Tiffany Amber (from Nigeria)
♥ Near Far (from Sierra Leone)
These are only half the illustrations I did! I still have a few to post here but will save them for next week. Hopefully I’ll get my hands on some pictures from the launch and will be able to post those too. Fingers crossed!
Wishing you the perfect weekend.
Lots of love from Lisbon.
