Fashion Sketches 21 - 24 of 31 posts

Theater District

Posted Mar 2010

I'm back. Been working all over lately. Glad to get back to the Theater District in Manhattan last night. I was drawing sketches at a Corporate Event at the Marriott Marquis near 42nd Street. Always gotta be on my toes - this time the guests took it upon themselves to 'Strike a Pose' - I was taken by surprise, but I was able to flow with it. Ah yes - some people really know how to have Fun:

It's Hard to See in the Dark

Posted Sep 2009

Don't say that my life is just one big happy Party. Just because I have to good fortune to work at Parties - where people are usually upbeat. We all Enjoyed, but this was a difficult event to work.

Not only was it very dark, but I also felt like it was too Wild. I know that a lot of people like that - that the reason they go to Parties is for a chance to let loose, a chance to be wild. I understand because I like to do that too. But not too often. And I'm not a guest. So I have to stay level-headed. I try to tap in to some beautiful music in my brain to keep me calm. Some of my favorite songs these days are:

Unchained Melody (I've been listening to a version by Love Potions Instrumentals on the way to my gigs)

Siren Song by Sarah Moon (my all-time Favorite!)

Dream a Little Dream of Me by Mama Cass

I Still Feel Love by Joy Shannon and the Beauty Marks


So there I was. Drawing in the dark. Loud music. Excited people. It's not just going to Parties. For me, I'm going to Work.

And I was glad to be there. At my job. Where I had to carry my Supplies through some sort of a Fun-House entrance, and set up surrounded by 'interesting' stuff. I like to draw Fashion Sketches. Where the people are:

Bloomingdales Fashions

Posted Sep 2009

This was an unusual request. I usually work with the clothes that the people are wearing when I make my Fashion Sketches. But this time, Bloomingdales was having an event called 'You on the Red Carpet'. Or 'Lights, Camera, Fashion'. Something like that. So I was sent actual pictures of dresses - their customers were going to choose which dress they wanted to be wearing in their drawings.

Here are some Samples that I drew up before going. Not only so the customers would see my drawing style, but also so I could prepare some ideas I had to portray this event:
