Lady Gaga Piece?

Kinda, this is my form of brainstorming. I'm going to start a series of illustrations that combine a few of my favorite things. Portraits, fashion illustrations, and those graphite driven atmospheres that were in the Gareth Pugh and Rodarte work that I had done this past spring.

Alas, this idea is very new, so narratively and conceptually speaking, I'm starting out dry. That's why Lady Gaga looks more like a vintage space glamazon in this image than a contemporary pop musician. It's brain vomit. But thankfully, I do my best work when I get the bad ideas out first. So excuse this, but I think it's kind of a pretty color sketch.

Sketchbooks In NYC

This is one of the reasons I love being in this city. I can draw whatever I want, wherever I want to, and people don't mind. In fact, a lot of people are interested in what I'm drawing. If you ask for stories, you wont be let down!

Finally! A post with an image to it.
This is a new illustration for the August issue of OUT magazine, that accompanied an article about Barbara Streisand's passion for design and lack of passion for activist and playwright Larry Kramer. It's a shift in color style, and it's in the right direction. Hopefully more assignments follow with color!
