Lydia Hearst on the Cover of Vogue

Hey Friends, how are you all doing? How was your weekend? This week is going to be busy; i’m getting ready for an art show in a few weeks. I’m pretty excited for it. Today, i ended up painting this amazing Vogue cover of model Lydia Hearst. I really like how it turned out. The whole mood and tone was exactly what i was picturing. i hope you like it! ;) p.s. Looks like i’m going to NY Fashion Week with my brother David who contributes to The Dream Walking Society. So far, looks like i will be going to Donna Karan and Marc Jacobs shows, so be expecting some fashion week drawings!

  1. Ohh it's beautiful! I love the subtle colors. What art show are you going to? I saw that you live fairly close to my area, and I'd love to see the art show you mentioned.

    Oh my jeez this is so great! I really think you captured what the cover looks like and made it… Danny-ish. Which is a good thing.

    I just wanted to say that with-out-a-doubt, you are an amazing artist. You draw people exceptionally well, and you add just the right amount of fantasy! I love all your work! I myself, love to draw and sketch. I'm really into fashion as well!

  7. These is sensational, my new favorite (or second favorite… or, well I can never really pick, but it's high on the list) I think it emits such an atmosphere, and the colors are just luscious!
