Latin for Glory Around the World

The month of November has always been one of my favorites; it is a time to reflect upon the recent past months and begin looking forward to the new year ahead. The holiday season is thrown upon us during this time, promoting feelings of excitement, celebration, and even nostalgia. 

This November, I am thankful for the opportunity to share my artwork across the world. By making art prints available, I have reached further than I could imagine. Today, Danielle Bernstein of WeWoreWhat and owner of the original Wild West bull posted a snippet of her new gallery wall with my piece in the corner. 

It was extremely satisfying (to say the least) to see an artwork that I put in so much time, thought, and effort amidst beautiful and inspiring pieces in a influencer's New York City apartment. Danielle is just one amongst others that have posted their Latin for Glory art...and for that, I am also thankful. 

Interview with Shoerazzi

I had the pleasure to be interviewed by one of the most influential publications for my work, Shoerazzi. For many years, I have used the site to view new collections, research on emerging designers, and satisfy my obsession with shoes. This time, the article features my work as an illustrator and an insight into my life. Questions dive into my inspirations, favorite designers, artistic hurdles, future plans, and more.

No Carbs for Thanksgiving

There are many things that I am thankful for in my life, including my health, family and friends. 

I am also very thankful for everyone's support, kind words, and admiration for my work. A lot of thought, love, and dedication is put into each piece I create, and to feel so much appreciation from other people, means everything. 

In ode to this year's Thanksgiving, I created a series of plated heels, each representing a different appetite, or style. Do not let the fork and knife deceive you, these plates have zero carbs, are fat free, and very low in sodium. 

Bon Appetite! 

Refined

Exotic 

Flirty 

No meal is complete without something...Sweet

Sophia Webster #PimpMyChiara Challenge

As a thank you to reaching a milestone of 500,000 followers on Instagram, Sophia Webster launched the #PimpMyChiara challenge for her fans. By simply using the provided sketch of the popular Chiara heel, which features a pair of butterfly wings, you could transform it into the shoe of your dreams. Below are three entries I created, each one with its own personality and story.  

Chiara No. 1 reflected my personal style with the blue and white porcelain motif commonly seen in my illustrations and artwork. The pattern on the toe band mimics the movement of the ocean, mean while the flowers on the wing directly relate to a butterfly's surroundings. 

Chiara No. 2 was inspired by Sophia Webster's playful designs and signature style of mixing vibrant colors, bold prints, and chic silhouettes. The palette I used includes orchid purple, candy apple red, and valentine pink. I paired these colors with a black and white striped pattern and "caviar" black pearl studs.  

Lastly, Chiara No. 3 alludes to the beauty and sultry nature of the fall. One of my favorite trends this season, is the incorporation of fur and the pom pom on everything! This decadent style decorates the Chiara with a multi-color faux fur toe strap, mulberry patent details, and oil slick leather wings with a matte charcoal lining. This one is bound to be a jaw dropper. 

 

The winner will be announced on the 20th of November. Wish me luck!
