Very excited about my recent commission to illustrate the models at s.Oliver’s in-house fashion show live as it was happening on September 18th! This special collaboration includes the live fashion illustrations and portraits of select personalities of the German fashion company headquartered in Rottendorf. Here showcased are a few snapshots of the resulting live action drawings and the scene at the event.
On August 24th I was commissioned to illustrate live the glitzy performances of Cincinnati artists including wigmaker Stacey Vest and the performance group Forealism Tribe, all the while portraying VIP sponsors by appointment at the gala's cocktail hour. The ones who opted for a drawing got to take home an exclusive memento of the fabulous evening while the other guests could experience the process as it was happening!

Stoked about my collaboration with Coca-Cola Design, to bring a creative, inspirational dynamic during the photoshoot of the Coca-Cola 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia program. Scroll down to see select resulting illustrations and a making-of time lapse video by The Coca-Cola Company. Please get in touch if you'd like to learn more about this collaboration and how my (live) illustrations can help create buzz around your project!
I had a blast sketching the energetic fashion performance of the New York style icon Tziporah Salamon yesterday at the Cincinnati Art Museum. What a fun and fabulous event this was! The performance was preceded by a private Sunday cocktail reception and followed by a lovely seated luncheon at the museum. Invited by chief curator Cynthia Amneus and the event sponsor Moe Rouse I was able to capture the action straight from the front row.
This was also the first time using my spanking new 12.9–inch iPad Pro with Procreate illustration software. You can view a selection of the resulting instant sketches in the above slide show. Let me know what you think!
Truly stoked about this feature about my live illustration work on the Belgian TV channel één (English)!

A few photos from the launch of my new limited edition publication 'A sketchbook as a diary' by Stockmans at the Copyright Bookshop in Antwerp with live illustrations, Finnish vodka, and wonderful hors d'oeuvres prepared by Hilde of Copyright. Among the guests that struck a pose for me was the amazing Belgian top model Anouck Lepère — it was such fun creating her portrait and a great honor! Big thanks to Copyright, Stockmans, and everyone that came by, a few copies are still available at Copyright — get yours while the supply lasts!
Got a chance to capture the energy of the fashion icon Diane Pernet yesterday at her A Shaded View on Fashion Film screening at MFA Boston yesterday! I had the honor to meet her the first time in 2007 at the Noovo fashion festival in Santiago de Compostela and since then she has featured my work a couple of times on her website A Shaded View on Fashion. Really stoked to see her again in Boston and wishing her safe travels back to Paris!
New live portrait drawing event, commissioned by Essentiel Antwerp for the ESSENTIEL ANTWERP X DESIGNERS AGAINST AIDS Collection Private Launch Party.
The party was held at the chique pop–up space A–TOWER in Antwerp and my task was to capture the essence of invited personalities including members of press and celebrities from Belgium and around. The drawing performance itself generated a great deal of excitement, and the brave ones who stroke a pose will receive the original drawing as a truly unique and exclusive keepsake — courtesy of ESSENTIEL ANTWERP and DESIGNERS AGAINST AIDS.
A few photos from the opening of the New Nordic Fashion Illustration Vol. 2 exhibition opening at the Estonian Museum of Applied Art and Design. If you happen to be in the area I really recommend visiting the exhibition. It is really well done, very impactful and provides a very nice look of the many types and styles of contemporary fashion illustration. For me this was also an amazing opportunity to meet my fashion illustrator colleagues whose work I have been following for years, but didn't know personally. Everyone was really friendly and enthusiastic to connect with each other - almost like a family getting together after a long time!
