Fall 2015 Couture: Jean Paul Gaultier

I love this look from Jean Paul Gaultier's Fall 2015 Couture collection! I think it would make a killer villainess or femme fatale look (no pun intended?)

… Actually my first thought when I saw this look was of Bloodborne. I immediately thought of the Mensis Cage when I saw the headdress, but this whole outfit seems like it would fit right into the game. The actual inspiration for the various beautiful headdresses in the collection are traditional coiffes from Brittany, which are worth a quick image search.

Fall 2015 Couture: Ulyana Sergeenko

"Her new Fall collection, like all of them so far, tells a story about her native Russia. This one focused on Saint Petersburg's Soviet-era communal apartments, which saw once-grand 10-room homes divided among their once-grand mistresses and any number of sailors, peasant families, KGB officers, and army men. […] As sweet as that sounds, and aside from the occasional fur bonnets, it wasn't entirely innocent. It never is here. The apartment theme gave Sergeenko a reason to explore boudoir-ish pieces." – via

Nila Anthony

I really like Nila Anthony's cute, quirky bags so I picked some of my favorites and drew them  :)

It actually started with this bag, but then I took a look at her other designs and kept going:

(psst I had posted one of these a day on my Instagram, which is updated a little more often)

Tarina Tarantino

It's been a while! I selected a few designs that I liked from Tarina Tarantino's collections to illustrate and posted one a day this past week on my Instagram.

Food illustrations!

I was browsing on Pinterest and saw these delicious-looking snacks (and drink) that are perfect for summer! Recipes are included if you feel like making any of these yourself.

Fruit salad popsicle

Iced tea with plums and thyme

Lemon meringue tart

This is also the first time in a while that I have used a brush and ink to make linework. For some reason I avoided it – maybe I had to relax a little and accept the slightly more unpredictable nature of using a brush? Either way, it was nice to see the different result.

I also made a pattern! Which color do you prefer?

Disclaimer: It's not a good idea to draw these things late at night. You will end up hungry and remorseful.
