Alice + Olivia X Deanna First Illustrations by Deanna First

I can’t seem to get enough of @aliceandolivia lately :) This time live sketching customers at their Madison location! Was amazing to see a percentage of sales going directly to @shalvacenter #shalva. Also, this polka dot lil number is by them too. Each sketch takes 5-7 minutes to sketch. I only need a small table and chair for my events. I bring the rest!

Their latest collection celebrated #KeithHaring and his iconic style which is used on prints and graphics throughout the garments.

DIANE VON FURSTENBERG X DEANNA FIRST ILLUSTRATIONS by Deanna First

On Thursday, September 13 I teamed up with the team at DVF to celebrate Fashion Week in-store with offering shoppers a custom sketch with purchase. Live music by the talented DJ Xwnia Wolf was playing throughout the day and champagne were also offered to shoppers. I couldn’t of asked for more a more accommodating and enthusiastic team to work with. They truly made today memorable not just for myself by for every shopper that stopped in!

ShopStyle Brunch X Deanna First Sketches at 1 Hotel BK by Deanna First

I was thrilled to work with ShopStyle for the first time this week at The Osprey located inside of 1 Hotel Brooklyn this week! The event was a beautifully executed brunch to celebrate ShopStyle's partnerships throughout the years. Guests could pick from 1 out of 2 backgrounds representing either the Brooklyn Bridge or a Rooftop overlooking the NYC skyline. I pre-illustrated the backgrounds and added in logo in advance.

This was fitting considering the venue location and hotel that is known for its stunning rooftop views! I attached a few photos from the event. Note, that my live sketches are done in 5-7 minutes each! Hope you enjoy!
