Paris and its mysteries… For centuries, the most wonderful intrigues have been woven in the Louvre, a haven of culture and history. An intrepid young woman enters this universal temple and unwinds the skein of time. After an encounter with the Mona Lisa and the Italian masters, armed with a key, she releases the secrets — also desired by a man hot on her heels — enclosed for more than 150 years in a legendary trunk created by Louis Vuitton. Like a thread stretching across time and space, a hot-air balloon rises above the Cour Carrée. The beautiful unknown woman leaves the Louvre for a far-off destination in pursuit of her destiny.

I’ve been published! This is a page from a Hong Kong-based magazine called Milk X. They contacted me a few months ago and commissioned some illustrations of iconic bags and the women that inspired them. Here’s the page where they appear.
I took the liberty to do my own editorial from the commissioned images as well.
I got an email from Sephora this morning which prompted me to share my daily makeup routine. It’s pretty simple as I don’t wear a lot and only takes 15 minutes max.
Step 1, and probably the most important: is moisturizer. I usually apply some coconut oil and then Kiehl’s moisturizer on top because my skin is pretty dry these days. Step 2: Bare Escentuals mineral foundation. Step 3: This eyeliner is THE BEST. My eyes constantly water and I need to use waterproof products and I haven’t found anything better. Step 4: I think this blush makes all the difference. Step 5: The final touch, a bit of gloss and I’m done!
I did a little catch up of Milan and Paris fashion weeks the other day and this Dsquared2collection caught my eye. A 40′s and menswear inspired collection will do that. Loved all the accessories: the hats, ties, bow ties and the jewellery, oh the jewellery! I did a super quick sketch of one of my favourite looks.
I finally finished this accessories illustration. Again, if you follow my instagram, you’ve seen it in progress over the last couple of weeks. The crown and earring took me a while… as you can imagine. It’s a love/hate thing; I love details, but they tend to get tedious after a while.
So, did you love this Dolce & Gabbana collection or what?! Byzantine mosaics, crowns, rosaries, the shoes, the red dresses… I loved it all!
Hello, dear readers! I’ve apologized to several people for not having updated my blog in a while. Well, I took a “break” as they say, à la Friends. I’ve had several side-projects on the go which I can reveal soon, hopefully.
Till then, here’s a quick sketch of one of my favourite looks from the Rudsak Fall 2013 show that I attended at Toronto Fashion Week (World MasterCard Fashion Week). I’ve always been a fan; I sported my Rudsak boots and gloves to the show, natch!
