Becoming a Working Artist

I have been busy and forgotten to post here on the blog so ill share a couple of things with you all.

I took the class by Lisa Congden called  Becoming a Working Artist on Creative Live. She is an artist that I have been following online via her blog and instagram account. She recently wrote a great book called Art Inc.

 In this book she talks about the many ways you can earn a living by making art—through illustration, licensing, fine art sales, print sales, teaching, and beyond. It is a great class and a great book for the budding artist.
While taking the class I have also been working on my fabric designs and illustrations.

I have also been working on some fashion illustrations to add to my portfolio. I always have a great time styling the girls in high fashion outfits.

This fashion illustration was inspired by Rustic Moon 13's bone leather boho Bag. I styled this girl in Key Man Design's Clementine leather shoes, 13 Threads's green tunic wool dress and Amaria rosary necklace.

 The fashionista in this Pink in the City is wearing a St. John Knit jacket, Bottega Veneta Roma Leggero Tote bag, and Alejandro Ingelmo lace up point toe pumps.

In this fashion illustration I featured a Gucci leather belted jacket, skirt of a fabric design I am currently designing, Luchesse Milla alligator 4" stacked heel boots. This illustration is was inspired by the boots that we saw at Kemo Sabe in Las Vegas last week. This store has some incredible products and the customer service is amazing. We spent some time getting educated on various products such as William Henry's amazing knives and the amazing Luchesse Milla boots.

This particular image was inspired by the Gucci leopard print tote. I have included a Smythe jacket, Gucci scarf and Gucci studded boots.

 If you are interested in any of these prints please visit the shop. I am also even offering these fashion illustrations on customizable notecards. You can have the illustration but with your name on it.

 I have so much more to share but I'll stop there. Hope you all had an awesome couple of weeks. Everyone have a great weekend! :)
