Emily Didonato, one of the most beautiful models ever, and the face of my favourite perfume commercial by Giorgio Armani “Acqua Di Gioia”
This natural blonde starlet played a writer on a beautiful trip to Verona #illustrator #drawing #igotartskills
Another illustration for the day! Jessica Alba, easily one of the worlds most naturally beautiful women, great business women, and she seems like such an amazing mom and friend.
During my time in London I made a lot of friends from the Nigerian community of London. Not only is the food in Nigerian culture delicious and spicy beyond belief, but they have beautiful African gowns and textiles that are unique to their distinctive regions and kingdoms.
A really great friend of mine who happens to be an excellent violinist happened to come from one of those many talented Nigerian families and his wonderful mother and grandmother had this dress made for me. It was so touching to realise that I had a little piece of this vibrant culture. It’s a modern and edgy cut with the patterns and prints of African cultured, balancing old and new, I felt like a beautiful princess from an ancient African tribe for the day.
This lady has been such a great inspiration. I’ve always liked make up but Andrea Brooks brought it back down to earth and made it funny. Aside from that she’s a stunning natural beauty, had to illustrate.
My sister took me to a New Kids on the block reunion concert? Yeah it was a bit awkward, but what better time than to break out some shiny tribal metallics and white jeans?
Decided to get a little royal blue bandeau and pair it underneath my awesome ASOS tunic tribal top I got in London from one of my most stylish friends. White jeans are always a summer staple for me and of course my trusty Michael Kors tote which has gone through war with me.
Once upon a time I was in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. I was walking around the beach when I stepped on a sand dollar, I (being easily amused) was very vocal about my finding and nearby a curious old woman came over to see what I had found.
She seemed a big odd but how can you be suspicious of a little granny in a leopard bathing suit a bright pink visor? Well this lady proceeded to say: “they’re good luck you know?” And then she yanked it from my hand and ran off with my sand dollar!
I was a bit stunned, and later I was just angry, if only I had just stuffed that thing in my bag and not said anything. My frustration led me to seek other sand dollars and that’s when I found a little vintage beach shop nearby where I found this sand dollar pendant. I’m happy I got it, I sort of feel like I found another sand dollar.
Henri Cavill, the new and wonderful superman whom I’ve fallen in love with (he just doesn’t know it) I loved his very polished look in this picture, I had to draw him, now I just wish I could add that “Take on me” video effect and have him pop up in my living room so we could go have some sushi.
I like to illustrate, and lately I’ve been going on a portrait rampage. This illustration is of one of my favourite YouTube gurus, Michelle Phan, this was for her Ever Eden jewellery campaign, I thought the picture was very ethereal.
I absolutely love colour, these harem pants I got from an amazing store in #Andalucia #Spain, being a proud part Spaniard, I’m always attracted to things with a bit of a flamenco flair. The gorgeous peacock fan? Was a Asian find at a Chinese specialty store in South Carolina.
