Meet Daniela! This is an example of the wonderful world of custom portraits that could be yours if you chose to commission me. Daniela worked with me on every aspect of this painting to make it reflect the details of her life. For example, she spends her summers in Italy, so we posed her riding a vespa. She interned at Fendi, so we chose to make it not only a vespa but a Fendi vespa. She also worked for The Row, so shes toting this $34,000 dollar backpack (another glowing example of my illustrative ability to give you things you might not own in real life) and those Brian Atwood Liese Sandals are her most prized shoe possession. If you look closely you  can even see her freckles. We thought of everything. Cleverly meaningful right?? And at the end of the day it turned out to be a pretty fun sketch! Happy Thursday!

A Fendi spring look I love. In fact, I love all of the Spring 2011 RTW looks. They are Ready (for me) To Wear. Guess what I'm doing tonight... going to see ballet at the Kennedy Center! I promise pirouette inspired illustrations next week. Happy Friday!
