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!

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.
