Attention stripe fans! The Art of Stripes, the latest book in my Art of series with Hardie Grant UK, is out! As a total stripe junky (I have SO MANY STRIPES IN MY LIFE), this book is near and dear to me. Tops to bottoms, scarves to socks, this handy little lookbook is full of inspiration for how to wear all your favorite stripey pieces, plus profiles of some of the women who've made this pattern a style classic. It's available now on Amazon and in fine book shops.
I'm on a sort-of, semi-vacation, so I'm drawing women in scarves.
I'm feeling pretty tired (and happy) after a weekend trip to Rock Hall, Maryland. It was my first time visiting that area of the Chesapeake, which was nice to have explored, considering I'm working on an illustrated map of this region right now. We ate piles of blue crab, dipped into the bay, and learned how to do the "rock hall wave" . The weekend wrapped up with a drive over the awesome Chesapeake Bay Bridge and into Baltimore, where I had a chance to see the neighborhood mural/campus map I did earlier in the year for University of Baltimore (some detail shots here). It was cool to see my work at that scale (the mural is 120' wide)!
In other news, I just wrapped up illustrations for a new book that will be available this October from Hardie Grant UK, called Man Made. Written by Dan Jones (who is completely hilarious), the book is full of tips, funny and serious, showing men how to be well-groomed and dressed for success. This was such a fun project! Here are some sneak peeks at the illustrations:
As part of Mike Hambouz's annual Faces of Death tribute project, I created this portrait of Anne Hollander (born Oct. 16, 1930), iconic fashion historian and author of "Seeing Through Clothes," (1978) — a scholarly exploration of the link between of art and style. She liked to say that "The art of dressing is the art we all practice.” This beautiful, remarkably insightful woman passed away in July of this year.
I now have a limited number of prints from the Revival Series available to purchase at Dusty Rose Vintage on Greenpoint Ave. Stop in for one tonight, and to sip cocktails and check out a new capsule collection from Alissa Laderer. Fun!
