Today I'll be hanging out with Emily Giffin at Urban Chic in DC, you may remember this illustration
that I did for the invitation. But I wanted to share another EG related illustration too. This was for Emily's book party in Atlanta over the weekend at the W hotel, where guests met the author around the hotel's beautiful pool.
Good morning! I'll be back later with illustration postings but I just had to take a hot second to brag. Above is a picture of me (center left) flanked by my cronies and the lovely lady on the right in purple is the one and only Emily Giffin
. This was taken when the four of us bffs were out clubbing together on Friday night. Well, not really, we had actually just met moments before. But we were in a club... to celebrate the launch in paperback of Emily's latest novel, Heart of the Matter
How did I get to go to such a celeb-tastic event? Remember these little numbers...
Yep! Emily liked my illustrations and invited us up! Cool huh? Emily and her friends were all so sweet and fun to get to know. I was on cloud nine when I got to chat with Emily and she told me how much she loved my art. Oh and did I mention that we got to hang out in the "VIP section" where we did our best to "act natural" while sitting mere feet from Hillary Swank. No biggie.
Ok back later with new art
good morning! this is a monday to end all mondays. today is christmas tree murder day. yes there is a giant truck/machine outside my window eating up the discarded christmas trees with horrible teeth maching grinding noises. so sad....
so luckily, i have something very cheerful to share with you:
these are illustrations i did inspired by emily giffin
's book series. you know, something borrowed, something blue etc. i've read them all - i'm a book worm, did you know that? and recently discovered that emily has a website
where she shares fan photos.
girls from all around the world have sent in pictures of themselves reading their eg books. if you have time to check it out, it will make you smile
. i particularly like the one of the cute baby holding 'baby proof'...
anyway, all these fan pics inspired me to send in a sketch, instead of a photo. and then i got a little carried away and did six different ones! each book needed its own girl after all
ps. both illustrations are now available for sale
! Thanks for all your great feedback!
