The iPhone cases I designed for ban.do that were produced exclusively for Anthropologie are now available. Being an illustrator is funny sometimes - I did these over New Year's Eve and New Year's Day, and they are finally being released. There is still nothing as thrilling and gratifying as seeing your work in print!

This week felt like this portrait by Parker Fitzgerald.
It was made better last night by the fun Splendid + ban.do Tee Party with friends, and dinner at The Hart and the Hunter with my best friend. I've wanted to try The Hart and the Hunter since I read Jonathan Gold's write up in Counter Intelligence and we were finally on that side of town. It was awesome.
I ate this amazing smoked trout toast (gonna try making it at home this weekend), Ryan had a kale salad, and we shared the butter biscuits. Ah-mazing. And we sat next to Seth Meyers' brother, Josh Meyers.
And with that, ending the week on a quiet note. Just a great photograph and some words. Happy weekend, friends.

Happy Monday! Here are two botanical illustrations of rose and lavender that I did over the weekend. I ended up really loving these - my take on those beautiful classic botanical illustrations. I once took a water-based medium class with a teacher who painted those professionally for high-end interior designers - she had the cleanest, most meticulous work!

This weekend is busy busy busy with work, so next weekend I hope to be doing some of this. Snoozing with my pets. Maybe watching Breakfast at Tiffany's again.
Happy Cinco de Mayo, too! I'll be ending the night with a margarita for sure.

Today is the first day of May, which is also known traditionally as May Day. There are lots of rituals associated this holiday, i.e. first day of summer, dancing around a May pole, crowning a May queen; but my favorite is the May basket. You leave baskets of flowers or sweets on the doorsteps of friends and neighbors. Kind of a sweet, old timey colonial American tradition that I'd like to revive.
So for today, consider this protea illustration a May basket from me to you.

Here's a quick daily outfit illustration since I haven't done one in awhile. These are super fun for warming up, or in most cases, ending the day with a quick little painting. I'm obsessed with my gold slipper flats too, so they're my go-to nowadays.
