Morocco Bound with Mr & Mrs Smith Hotels!!

Monday, May 18, 2015

Hello Loves!!

I hope you all had an awesome weekend. It's nearly 10 PM here in New York and I'm up finalizing last minute projects, proposals, and collaborations because this Thursday AM I'm flying to Marrakech, Morocco for a partnership with Mr & Mrs Smith Hotels!! From the time I started Travel Write Draw back in September 2010, the aesthetic of this blog was VERY much inspired by a VOGUE Paris editorial that was shot in Morocco. I love the fantasy of the Sahara desert, souks, the medina, and the idea of a miraculous oasis. The juxtaposition of the somewhat conservative culture paired with the provocative styling of Carine Roitfeld was/is everything I dream of in fashion. I cannot wait to bring my own experience in this beautiful country to life through my TWD illustrations.

As always, be sure to follow along in realtime on my Instagram @TravelWriteDraw where I'll be sharing the very best of Marrakech and beyond including the stunning Mr & Mrs Smith Hotel properties!!

Stay tuned for some fun surprises darlings!!

Much love,

Interview with Fashionista.com!!

Wednesday, April 15, 2015

Happy Wednesday Dolls!!

A few weeks ago I was interviewed, by the lovely Dhani Mau of Fashionista.com, for an article on "How to Make It as a Fashion Illustrator in 2015." I was so honored to be considered a relevant voice and authority on the topic of fashion illustration today, especially to be written up alongside my longstanding blog/illustrator idol Katie Rodgers of Paper Fashion. I have been following her blog since the time I was still an illustration student at FIT from 2009 - 2011. For all my aspiring illustrators out there, this is a must read article - super informative and inspirational.

Much love,

Happy Friday My Darlings,

I hope you all had a rocking week!! I'm so thrilled to announce that this April I'm partnering with one of my all time favorite fashion brands, the incredible Maiyet, on an illustration series inspired by their SS15 collection. In particular, I'm focusing on three specific artisan techniques that were used throughout the collection, beginning with this stunning traditional Indonesian batik print. Check out all the pieces brought to life with this exquisite fabric here and stay tuned for the remaining two bespoke sketches.

Postcard from Thailand, Laos, & Cambodia with @Contiki!!

Sunday, April 5, 2015

Two weeks ago today I returned from the trip of a lifetime to Southeast Asia with Contiki Vacations. Though I'm currently in Toronto, if I close my eyes, I can still feel the warmth of the sunset in Van Vieng, Laos over the Nam Song River. Having travelled with Contiki through Turkey, Egypt, and Greece, I thought I would be quite prepared for my excursion with them to Thailand, Laos, and Cambodia. As I would quickly come to know, there are some places in the world that you simply can't prepare for...
