Tommy Hilfiger X Zendaya Pop-Up X Deanna First Custom Tees + Notebooks by Deanna First

One of my dream clients Tommy Hilfiger asked to team up with me on their Zendaya X Tommy Hilfiger Pop-Up at their 5th Avenue location this March!! I was there March 7, 8 and 9th from 1-6pm daily customizing t-shirts and notebooks in celebration of their exciting new collab! The collection was inspired by strong, iconic women in 1970’s. There was a palm reader, tarot reader and tons of cool activations! #Tommy Partner

Kendra Scott NEW SoHo store sketches! by Deanna First

Big things are happening for Kendra Scott! They announced that they will be opening their first ever store in Manhattan as of August 31st at 126 Spring Street. I was thrilled when then approached me with the opportunity to illustrate the soon to be interior and exterior sketches. I've been wanting to get into decor sketches lately and really do love the process of switching up my regular routine.

I used a mixture of elements to bring these pieces to life. I started with pencil, micron and copic markers before adding shading and tweaking the layout in the computer. I love using a combination of digital and by hand since digital allows me to easily provide different layouts and colorways for my clients.

Kendra Scott Fall 18 Southampton X Live Sketch by Deanna First

I was honored when one of my favorite jewelry brands Kendra Scott approached me to live sketch at their store in Southampton to celebrate the upcoming launch of Kendra Scott Fall 2018 line!

I've only been to The Hamptons a handful of times so it was exciting to get the chance to go back. I custom drew their Filigree Photo Frame in antique silver and rose gold prior to the event. I always leave a little bit of space for my sketches which take roughly 5-7 minutes to draw. 

Customers could sip on lemonade, get sketches and were treated to their favorite snacks with every purchase. 

If you missed me this time I will be back in September at the opening of their Soho store in NYC! TBA specific date and time but stay tuned. :)
