Mindy Kaling X DSW Event Illustrations by Deanna First by Deanna First

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

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

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.
