“The Siren Who Loved by Danny Roberts, Sophie Ward and Stacey Dupree. The Siren project is a collaborative begun by Roberts, based in Los Angeles. Roberts illustrations have provided the foundation of inspiration for this haunting love story about a man driven across the ocean for the hand of a deadly and yet illustrious woman. The project is built out of multiple and varied artistic contributions, all building towards a final installation which will take the spectator on the journey of the story through Roberts’ choice of imagery, Duprees audio and Ward’s written word. Upon completion The Siren will be printed in its full entirety by Paper Castle Press.”

The Two Versions of Dior.

About a year ago I drew a thumbnail sketch of 5 girls laying on their backs. The concept for the picture was that I wanted it to have dynamic composition and be interesting from every angle. Once I finished the thumbnail, I set it aside for another time. Then a few months ago, I decided to illustrate Christian Dior‘s couture collection, and that thumbnail sketch was the perfect framework for the clothes. For three days straight I worked on the picture. It was 30″ X 40″ on illustration board. I used brushed ink and ink pens. I know I have already posted this picture in my Fashion Book, but I actually have 2 versions of this illustration. The original version is almost completely black and white, and the final is colored digitally. I actually mailed the original to Paris to The House of Dior two days after I finished. Still haven’t heard anything back from them… maybe someday. haha

The Academy of Art LookBook

In June 2007 Simon Ungless, Director of Graduate Fashion at the Academy of Art, asked me to illustrate the School of Fashion’s Lookbook for New York Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. I jumped with excitement at the offer. I worked night and day through the month of July producing one drawing a day for it. So yeah, this is my first Lookbook I’ve ever done. Hope yawl enjoy it.
