Boston Bound for Brooks Brothers

Today I'm Boston bound to live-sketch custom fashion illustrations at Brooks Brothers annual soirée benefitting the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. I'm looking forward to not only to meeting and sketching all the preppy and posh Brooks Brothers guests, but also to help raise money for such a great cause. It'll be my first visit to Boston, and I'm excited to sketching at Brooks Brothers famed Newbury Street store. A few weeks ago I illustrated a look from their recent womens collection for the invitation (also shared a sneak peek on Instagram) of a woman in a beautiful black shearling coat atop a silk dress adorned with a floral engineered print. They then took part of the floral print I rendered on the dress and used it as a decorative frame on the inside of the invitation, and I'm so pleased with how it came out!
If you're in Boston, I would love to extend the invitation to you. Below is all the information, including the RSVP.  25% of the evenings proceeds will be donated to BCRF, so you can shop while benefitting a great cause. Hope to see some of you there:

This Friday is my the last live-sketching event for this years Vogue x Clinique tour! I'll be down in Charlotte, North Carolina and I'm hoping to see and sketch some fashionable southern belles! In addition to this being my first time in Charlotte, its also my first time sketching at a Belk, which I'm excited about. Come by to just say hi, receive a fall trend review with a Vogue Stylist, a skin consultation, and get sketched by yours truly. Once again, we'll be turning the custom fashion illustrations into smartphone covers or you can pick from of my pre-printed designs, one of which is shown here on the invitation.

Shiseido Beauty Illustrations

I teamed up with Shiseido to create custom illustrations for "Light My Story," Shiseido's social media campaign. The concept was over a few months to share the Shiseido story through illustrations, photos and art by various luminaries and in return have people share moments from their lives, and they're stories. Shiseido is 140 year old company, with quite a rich history and scope. The theme of the illustrations I was asked to create were: behind the scenes of New York Fashion Week (show above,) a woman accessorizing with her pearls and pearl infused face cream, a chemist mixing new products, and a woman being pampered with a Shiseido facial.
The intention behind the woman depicted within this set of illustrations was to have her ethnicity appear to be half Caucasian and half Japanese as Shisedio is a Japanese brand rich in Japanese traditions. She's to reflect a strong, healthy, traditional and beautiful woman, not overly trendy or made up. I even had to remove some accessories and makeup from the sketches throughout the sketch phase of the custom illustration process.
Over the past few weeks these illustrations have been shared by Shiseido and today was the final one, the chemist (shown below.) It was a unique project to work on and I really enjoyed learning about their brand and trying some of their incredible products. I now use one daily actually, the Power Infusing Concentrate Serum. Its one step in the many steps of the Shiseido facial process (shown above,) which layers products and steps similar to a Japanese tea ceremony.
Hope you enjoyed these beauty illustrations as much as I enjoyed illustrating them. For similar posts you may have missed check out:

Illustrated Phone Cases Benefitting Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and I'm thrilled that three of my illustrated phone cases have been selected for Casetify's Pretty in Pink collection in which 30% of the cost of each phone cover will go to the Susan G. Komen Foundation. The first pretty in pink design chosen from my phone shop is Reiley (shown above.) She's pretty and polished in oversized sunnies, a pale pink top, and a bold dalmatian printed skirt. I love the way this illustration looks with its clear backing against the new rose gold iPhones!
Charlotte (shown above) looking up in her tortoiseshell sunnies and loose pink maxi dress is the other fashion illustration case chosen for Breast Cancer Awareness month. And my Kiss Kiss design of lip prints (shown below.) This pattern was originally designed for a Vogue promotion I worked on last year. Since the design was so popular when that project ended I added it to the shop since everyone could use a few kisses in their day!

All three designs can be purchased for any phone model, not only iPhones and are available in any phone case design (with bumpers, without, simple snap-on, etc.) With all three of these designs 30% of the purchase will benefit the Susan G. Komen Foundation throughout this Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Hope you like my "pretty in pink" designs and hope to see plenty of photos of you sharing your purchase on social! My instagram is @brooklit and I can't tell you how much I LOVE seeing my #FabulousDoodles phone cases tagged within your pretty pix! I even on occasion regram them!
