Was thrilled to be a part of creating a series of illustrations for Mindy Kaling's recent collaboration with DSW shoes this past month. I was approached to do a series of watercolor sketches of their shoes which were used on place-cards at their dinner and hung throughout the venue. Attached are a few shots from the event! #DSW #MindyKaling #NYC
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.
I had the opportunity to team up with Modern Picnic which is a super cool brand that just launched dedicated to making the chicest lunch bags I've seen! They are fully insulated and look like a high-end classic purse from the outside. I was so amazed by the quality of their product I knew I wanted to collaborate with them!
I was excited to switch up my usual paper and pencil for purses and paint. It was refreshing and really enjoyed how easily the paint glides onto faux leather material. It is becoming my new favorite thing to illustrate on. We hosted a giveaway last week with the bag. If you aren't following along on my social @deanna_first please do! I post more of my daily sketches and experimental artwork there in addition to my next live-sketch events.
