Vogue x Clinique Sketching Tour 2015

I'm thrilled to announce I'm hitting the road with Vogue and Clinique again touring the country, live-sketching in various US cities starting this weekend in Seattle! Guests receive a custom illustration, which I'll draw on the spot as free gift with purchase, as well as a cell phone case customized with their illustration. I've also created two new patterns especially for these events which are going to be available as pre-printed smartphone covers, one of which is shown on the invitation above. It's a playful pattern of black and white fashion illustrations I hand painted in gouache, then scanned and photoshopped into a pattern.
Last year I was so pleasantly surprised to meet SO many of you, Fabulous Doodles readers and social media friends from across the country and I'm so excited Vogue and Clinique have brought me on board again. I'll also be visiting some new cities, I've yet to live-sketch in, and hope to meet even more of you fashion illustration enthusiasts. First up is Seattle: 

August 22, 2015 
12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

100 Bellevue Square Bellevue, WA
RSVP at 425.455.5800

If interested in coming please do RSVP, as these events tend to fill up! First is Seattle, WA this Saturday followed by Houston, TX the following Saturday. There will be more cities throughout September and October and I plan to post all the invites and information here as they become available so be sure and check back often, RSVP and follow along on my social media channels. Hope to see and sketch you soon!

Illustrated Book Covers: Chloe by Design Volume 2

I'm so excited my latest illustrated books, Chloe by Design Volume 2 are almost here! I've illustrated not only one, but four, new books in the Chloe by Design series and they're all currently available for pre-order! These books are available as single bound copy Chloe by Design: Balancing Act or broken down into four individual library bound hardcover editions: Intern Ambition, Design Disaster, Runway Rundown and Fashion Week Finale. As a sneak peek today I'm sharing a few of the cover designs, their base pencil sketches and a glimpse at them as they were illustrated works-in-progress done in pencil, marker, gouache and ink.
In this latest volume Chloe won the Design Diva tv competition and is now immersed in the world of a fictitious famous fashion designer as a design intern. She's assisting building his collection to show at New York Fashion Week. The theme of the collection is 1920s art-deco, so many of my illustrations throughout the books are bold geometric patterns and metallic motifs. I've always loved art-deco designs, so rendering many of these patterns and painting the intricate beaded embellishments they required was a joy.
My favorite illustration of the all covers turned out to be the menswear look (much to my surprise!) atop this post, adorning Runway Rundown. In close second was Balancing Act with its golden ballgown with beaded bodice and Intern Ambition's sequined deco cigarette pants. I tried to make each girl a different ethnicity and have a different personality to appeal to a wide audience but maintain a cohesive overall look. Chloe by Design volume two's release date is September 1st but you can pre-order your copies now. Be sure and follow me along on Instagram (@brooklit) too, as I plan to share peeks are the interior sketches throughout the next few weeks.
