Heidi Klum as Jessica Rabbit 4 Halloween (her transformation video)

Heidi-Klum-Jessica-Rabbit

As a fashion illustrator, Jessica Rabbit was/is a huge inspiration on my work. Her proportions and the “Bob Mackie-Like” gown on the animated diva were sensational. As a Fashion designer, Project Runway is another big influence, to this day one of my favorite shows. So magic happens when you marry the two, Heidi Klum (wearing a dress made by Project Runway’s Christian Siriano) & the iconic Jessica Rabbit. Hands down and amazing, incredible transformation. I nominate Klum “Drag Race Royalty” for her Lip-Syncing. What do you think of the transformation?

Salon-ART

One of my dear friends, Maria Machin has worked as a salesperson of supplies to hair salons around the country for many years. When she saw my Fashionista posters, she begged me to create a print specifically for hairstylists and salons that she could sell to her clients.

She wanted to offer something whimsical yet stylish to her salons, so I came up with the following designs for Hair salon posters: I hope …

FASHIONISTA-Poster-Blog

I get so many questions about how much I charge for paintings for home decor. As an illustrator, I don’t do much actual painting, and when I do the price tag is usually more in line with what art collectors would pay at a gallery show. But I do want to make my artwork accessible for my fashionistas at a price point you don’t have to be a collector to afford. To do this, I created a set of Fashion posters –  prints that are perfect for women who love style and glamor and would make a great addition to …
