It's only 06.01.2017 and I'm looking forward to t-shirts without a jacket and shorts. 


Mother & Daughter

...wish I had saved the photo from where I drew this...I made it a lot simpler.


Ms. Boyd's style

...had fun doodling Haley Boyd's daily looks of http://www.maraisusa.com/collections/our-products .
Love her shoe collection made in LA, USA. I have my eyes on the Jardin heels and the flat slides.



I don't have any fancy hiking gear but I love it. I don't do it enough living in the Bay area where hiking trails are abundant. One of my recent hikes locally was at Sweeney Ridge Park. My bf and I hiked to the Nike Missile Control Site where you will have beautiful views if it's a clear day. 


rare moments when i use a computer to sketch...i still love my paper, pencil and eraser tho.


A t-shirt dress from Lanvin + H&M

Whenever H&M or Uniqlo had a collaboration for a new collection, my friend(s) and I would get up early and wait outside of the store, hours earlier its opening. What is it about a designer that you love that pulls you into purchasing such an item that isn't a classic and you won't really wear it all the time. For example, this t-shirt dress that's been embellished with prints, grosgrain ribbon, tulle and beads/sequins. It was a gift from that friend whom I would meet up and wait on line to have access to one of these goods. I have yet to officially wear this white t-shirt dress anywhere. I have worn it once at home to try on but never the world will see this on me. H&M or Uniqlo will have many other collaborations in the future but I no longer will wait in line...however, I am curious to see the Lemaire X Uniqlo launch tomorrow...


Asymmetric Linen vest

I have not worn this vest out yet to any event, not that there has been many outings happening in my life out in Northern California..! I lived in NYC for 25 years with great jobs, surrounded by the many interesting people I have met, befriended and my family so close. Even a day without work meant there was a new "adventure" ahead of me with a swipe of a metro card. I would start a free day like that with a trip to the Met and visit my favorite collections, perhaps sit on the steps in front of the museum, slowly start my walk downtown. I wouldn't have a set destination but the walk down would excite my imagination, mind and entice my senses. I loved stopping by Lady M cakes or the Laduree Uptown for a small treat. Central park was another favorite spot of mine in the city as I am sure is to millions of others who live in NYC. I especially loved the park in the winter, snow crunching under my boots with a hot cocoa in my gloved hand. Calling up a friend for a drink after work or meal was easier done there than here where I am now.

My illustrations are far from perfect, very far from what I want as my "style" permanently but I can keep practicing as someone I admire had advised me once.
