Vanity, Vanity!

The introduction of some incredible drag queens - or rather performance artists - has proved to be very popular at the Society of Illustrators sketch night. They are so professional and can really hold a pose. Not only that, they bring with them the most amazing costumes! My illustration here is a tame version of a costume as I chose to make it into a menswear illustration but watch this space as the talent will be posing for us once a month due to popular demand. No doubt I will have something more elaborate soon! Pictured here is fabulous Vanity

Once a Tomboy....

Yes, I was a tomboy as a kid and still find myself checking out menswear on the street especially as there are some seriously creative dressers here in NYC. It was no wonder then I found myself in the garment district on a Saturday evening participating in a sketch session hosted by Tomboy BKLYN magazine. Founders and editors Ashta Hunter and Elizabeth Benzing did a fine job of styling and modeling, mixing street fashion with high end designer clothing. Their magazine includes an edgy mix of unisex, layered, casual and upmarket clothes. Thanks to Brandon Graham of Would You Rock This? for organizing the event! More of my sketches from the event on my Facebook page.
