Illustration for Mother’s DayRead More
I couldn’t be more excited to share these new illustrations with you!
I have been creating them for the last couple of weeks in a flurry to get them out into the world. I knew once I saw the first one emerge it was something special. I couldn’t wait to get to the next one to see how it would come out.
They started with an idea for creating illustrations of women. I love all the illustrations I see now and wanted to see how I could put my spin on it. I had a few musts:
they had to be women of color
they had to have freckles (like me). I don’t often see freckles on women illustrations
they had to be wearing patterned outfits
they had to have dynamic hair
Here is the first one I created. She is near and dear to me and I see a bit of myself in all of them. I love making them and creating their looks. They even get original outfits I design from my patterns!
I call her “Lady B”
Meet Lady D
Meet Lady T
and finally Meet Lady C

I recently had the pleasure of working with the Parisian fashion brand, Sezane. Their classic, feminine, polished and beautiful aesthetic was brought to life at their recent Los Angeles pop-up shop.
For several days in March and April I worked in an amazing, floral setting outside the store painting French phrases for their customers. C'est tres jolie!
As the customers chose from a list of popular French phrases of endearment, I used watercolors, Tombow brush marker pens and watercolor paper to create their art pieces. I painted brightly-colored florals to match Sezane's spring collection brand aesthetic.
I couldn't wait to ask the customer's what they purchased. Stepping into the shop makes your heart leap. There's so many beautiful pieces to choose from! (I love the striped top I wore from their collection)
In the first few days after opening, customers received one of these incredible flowers from Farm Girl.
I was incredibly inspired by the flowers I was surrounded in. It was a dreamy place to work for the day.
Thanks, Sezane, for a truly enjoyable and memorable experience!
I had the pleasure of working on a super-fun project for the CA Lottery. I created illustrations for the lottery that depicted Los Angeles, Sacramento and San Francisco/Oakland landmarks. I was approached as they were interested in working with a California artist to create illustrations that celebrate these cities and showcase major landmarks and those that have significance in the African American communities. The campaign just launched in the last couple of weeks and I couldn't wait to share it. The illustrations were placed in local papers in LA districts and animated, digital banners were placed on sites such as Bet.com and Hip Hop Wired.
