Today is my FIRST official day working from Meagan Morrison HQ (aka my bedroom/studio/apt) and it feels fantastic. I'm even more thrilled to share this follow-up feature I did this past weekend with The Style Line where I illustrated my plans for this next chapter I am embarking on. Catch all the colourfully sketched details of our Saturday hangout here.
Allsoooo, I officially announced via my Instagram and Facebook page this past Saturday, that I will be joining The Style Line team as their Guest Live Fashion Illustrator for New York Fashion Week starting tomorrow!! Wahoo!! Are you ready for all the fast and furious backstage and runway brushwork?! I'm not...I mean, yes I am (seriously need to get my supplies together like now)!!
Stay tuned all through the week to catch the results of NYFW illustrated live.

TGIF My Lovelies!!
Today is my last day as a full-time employee and I'm so excited to spread my wings and soar into this new adventure with all of you. My schedule has been a little nutty lately, finishing full-time projects and lining up things for my new business, BUT I did manage a little me-time last night to paint my #WCW January Jones. I absolutely love January's look. She is my go to reference for hair and makeup always, and when I saw her this week at the Emmy's, I could not resist illustrating her. So here she is, in all her Prabal Gurung and Christian Louboutin glory, with a killer red lip to boot.
What were some of your favorite looks of the evening?! More posts to come!!

Good Evening My Loves,
I have some BIG news to share with you all and I couldn't be happier. On Monday I officially resigned from my full-time job. I have finally, after half a decade, opened my own illustration and creative service company in New York to pursue my fashion illustration career here full on!!!! I am passport stamped, visa approved, signed, sealed, delivered in NYC and for the first time ON MY OWN TERMS!!!! I finally feel like the sky has opened up and is ushering me into a life I could only dream of for years. I am finally, finally, free.
It saddens me to let go of a company that I truly adored, and I am eternally grateful for everything they have provided me. But any great employer can recognize when their employee needs to go and follow their heart, their passion, their truest calling. Fortunately for me, my employer does.
Life right now is going at the speed of lightening. I have major collaborations planned for New York Fashion Week in a few weeks plus loads of fun commissions that I can't wait to share with you all. AND the best part is, I'm going to have all my time to give to you and my illustrations. I'm going to sign off for now but I assure you that the best is yet to come, for me, for you, for us together.
Sending so much light and love into the world tonight and leaving you with this final thought - "stop asking for permission to do what you love and just f$$cking DO IT."

Hello My Darlings,
I hope you've had a wonderful week thus far. SO much is changing in my world at the moment and I can't WAIT to reveal the big news with all of you. In the meantime, I'm thrilled to finally share the collaboration I did with my dear friend, the uber talented scarf designer and blogger Alexandra Dieck of Lexicon of Style!! Alex and I met this past Spring while taking that incredibly inspiring Blogging for Fashion Business class at FIT. We had an instant connection, as we are both super passionate entrepreneurs. Shortly thereafter we discovered that not only did we both live in the West Village, but we were also featured in the same Glamour Magazine New York Fashion Week Video from this past February 2014!! Clearly we were destined to become friends...continue reading after the jump!!
