Meet Lauren! That's Lauren M. Hughes to be exact. She's a writer, blogger and now a proud owner of a freshly water colored "from the desk of" portrait courtesy of moi. The artwork is now displayed on her blog header so go take a look! Lauren and I worked together to create an illustration that captures her in the details - from the little bulldog (shes a UGA grad) to her favorite books stacked on the desk. And if you check out her blog - a thoughtful collection of essays - you'll see just how beautifully she writes about the details that make life interesting. ps. thanks for all your amazing replies to my breakfast post, i had no idea my audience was full of such gourmands. perhaps we will have to discuss food much more often!

Hello! Welcome to the sketch book! If you’ve made it this far you probably know that I’m Inslee and Inslee Stationery is my line of fashion illustrated note cards and calendars. I began designing my stationery to give me an excuse to do what I love to do – draw! But I’m still itching to draw even more and to share these illustrations with you, so I’ve decided to create this blog as a way to showcase some of my other work. Here you’ll see sketches of whatever happens to inspire me. When I have a new illustration to share I’ll post it in the sketch book as a week long sale. If you fall in love with one of these sketches it can be yours within the week of its release as an 8×10 print for $20.00. Here is today's sketch. It is available on my website for sale right now! My inspiration for this sketch was sort of unusual - I dreamed it. As someone who spends a lot of my time thinking about clothes, drawing clothes, shopping for clothes, changing clothes... I guess it shouldn't be surprising that I dream about clothes too. Some people wake up in a cold sweat because they've just dreamed they're naked in public, I wake up with a start disappointed to find out that the dresses in my dreams aren't in my closet. To each their own reverie I suppose! Anyway, that's the story behind this illustration. Please check back often to see more of my work. I hope you'll enjoy this glimpse into my sketchbook and that some of its pages will brighten your walls soon!
