summer-time


Summer-time is just round the bend, where shorts and tee shirts provide casual style.  This is an illustration which I did for J.McLaughlin.  Picture this lovely gal stepping out for a quick stroll to pick up some fresh cut tulips and then to her best friends for a glass of wine on the terrace.  Summer-time is the perfect time for adding fresh casual classics and getting together with friends.  Never enough tee shirts or shorts to look cool during the summer heat.

I love the belt on this girl. Oh, I would so love to be sitting on a terrace sipping on some wine!

I really love the way you arranged the letters on the right. What a fun and chic illustration! Her outfit is pretty darn cute too.

You know what I love? I love your illustrations and then how you add a story to go with it. And I just have no problem at all stepping into your story. Lovely as always!

Very fun!

Do you get some sample clothing to illustrate or is the wardrobe your own creation?

the graphic letters/ logo were not done by me but a talented graphic guy and lil me did the illustration.
it sometimes takes two to tango!
glad you like the outfit, you can order one for yourself!

Summer time sounds delightful. I agree with Melissa - sitting on a terrace sipping wine sounds perfect.

Wow, I LOVE this illustration, bravo! That acid green is so full of light and energy. The colors are super summer-y.
But will it ever be summer? It's cold and damp here...

I loved reading your 6 things...when i read about always having a pen and paper by you, i had to smile because that is just what I envision you'd need!
