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.

Spring Couture 2014: Ulyana Sergeenko

This Spring Couture 2014 look is from Ulyana Sergeenko's collection! Personally I think this could be a good look for Valentine's Day tomorrow~

"In every couture collection, Ulyana Sergeenko tells a story. This time, it was a reimagining of a ride on the Orient Express. Sergeenko's new heroine not only crossed borders (the former Soviet republics of Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan), but also, in a manner of speaking, cross-dressed, borrowing clothes from the men she met on her travels and mixing them with her own more feminine attire. "She could be a movie star," Sergeenko said, "but she’s definitely a femme fatale.""

Pre-Fall 2014: Dsquared²

First look from Pre-Fall 2014 is from Dsquared²! The collection was made for "the modern Twiggy." (source) I definitely got the strong mod vibe while looking at this collection, and when I think of mod I think of Vespas. And if it's a Vespa, it has to be yellow right? FLCL just so happens to be on while I'm typing this.

"For Pre-Fall, the DSquared boys showed a swinging sixties lineup full of mod silhouettes, micro-mini skirts, and equestrian hats that drove home the idea. Altogether, it felt like a comparatively clean and understated direction for the label known for its ultra-sexy wares. They suggested that DSquared's girl is more grown up this season, but she still knows how to party." via

Spring 2014 Pantone Fashion Color Report

A brand new post for the new year  :]  In short, 2013 was kind of a rough year. But now it's time to gather everything together and keep going.

I know I'm late, but I was looking through Pantone's colors for spring 2014 and realized... hey, some of these look familiar! I like the balance a combination of pastel-y colors and vibrant colors creates.

"Designers take a modern twist on the traditional for spring 2014 by pairing soft pastels with vivid brights to create a colorful equilibrium. Inspired by a mixture of blooming flowers, travels abroad, and strong, confident women, designers use color to refresh, revive and defy conventional wisdom."  — Pantone

Happy 2014 everyone!
