Big hair and bold gold, I feel like she is very Leo season appropriate, no?

Happy Sunday!

I find it very difficult to find things to write to go along with my illustrations. Not because I have nothing to say , but because my thought is always:  I’d rather let the illustrations make you feel something not the random tangent I’m sure to go on. In all likely hood I will soon change the site layout to be more of a visual experience that you can better enjoy my illustrations as well as the videos, photos, and songs I find inspiring and would like to share. End thought…how do I transition out of this? Play me off Bill! ::: tips hat, dances off stage with cane :::

*update: I have changed the layout & I must say I think it’s quite the look.

Purple Haze XO CourtneyxMason CourtneyxMason3

Just a girl, her lovely afro, & some beautiful abstracts by a toddler & his aunt. All three were created during a little “art class” session with my 3 year old nephew. Meaning he barged in while I was working on my girl and demanded his own brush. We just painted up a storm mixing and blending colors on top of each others. I really had a blast and thought I’d share the finished product with you all. Forget established artist collaborations, grab a small child* and break out the paint! Thinking I shall hang these as a triptych. Get your own Purple Haze girl over at the shop.

Crew Love

Illustrations, This is About Me

Okay confession: I love J Crew. I wish (not really) that I was a fashion elitist who cannot fathom why they now show at FW but I am the exact opposite. I adore Jenna Lyons. I cannot walk past a J Crew store without at least stopping to look at the window display. Their colors are my kryptonite. So bright. So saturated. I want to roll around in their cashmere. I look through the Style Guide like a kid looking through a Toys R Us catalog. Anything I ever buy from them I can wear a billion times into forever. And who doesn’t love something they can wear into forever?

Look: J. Crew Spring 2013

The Perfect Sweater


While shopping with a friend this weekend we spotted an amazing looking sweater I just had to try on.  neon pink, v-neck, and a chunky knit  = perfect for spring and cold summer nights. Only thing was the fit! I love an oversized “boyfriend” fit and this just wasn’t cutting it. What other silhouette would balance out my penchant for short shorts?

So today here’s an ode to finding that perfect spring sweater I’m imagining in my head, if spotted please report back!

PS. Happy Monday, here’s to a great week!
