I was hired to create live illustrations for Yves Saint Laurent clientele at a luxurious Valentine’s Gala. Each VIP received an original, signed portrait of themselves. An indulgence to the senses, this gala was catered with goodies from Cupcakes and xoxolat.
I don’t typically draw portraits from live models – so it was very exciting for me to get to know these dynamic women of various backgrounds while watching my illustrations take shape simultaneously. This was an awesome event on so many levels. It was very aligned with my artistic style within the fashion industry and was also cool to interact with those I wouldn’t normally engage through social media. It’s great to identify opportunities that resonate with your focus and help get exposure with what is consistent with your artwork.
