Click here for Blogs of Note

Hello, Hello Everyone!!

It has been such an exciting past couple of days between celebrating my birthday and my feature on Blogs of Note. If I may be completely honest, I had no idea such a blog existed until I woke up one morning, discovered a lot of new followers, and traced the traffic source to my own blog. What an incredible honor to have Travel Write Draw spotlighted like this and furthermore to have all of you wonderful (and extremely sweet) followers now onboard the journey. Welcome and thank-you from the bottom of my heart to each and everyone of you.

May I just add the biggest, warmest thank-you to the Blogs of Note team (wherever you are) for this amazing gesture. I'm incredibly grateful and I feel so lucky to have all of you viewers to come along with me for the ride. Have a great start to your week.

Much love,
Meag xx

Interview with Patrick McMullan's PMc Magazine

Saturday, September 10, 2011

Read the full interview here

Hello Loves,

I'm so excited to reveal the interview I did with Patrick McMullan's PMc Magazine for their section titled "Who Am I?". The questions were so clever and insightful it made answering them such a joy. I really feel like my voice came through on this one. I owe the BIGGEST thank-you to my darling friend and former classmate Devon Pentz for arranging this interview. Without her this never would have happened. Just goes to show you that the friendships you develop with peers in your field, can be totally positive and supportive, without being at all competitive.

To read the full interview please click here!!

Also, thank-you to the incredible Joanna Baker and Sherry, Shirley, and Rachel of Trois Femmes for coming to see me at Lord & Taylor for Fashion's Night Out. I will be posting a photo recap next :)

Lots of love,

Illustrating at Lord & Taylor for Fashion's Night Out

Sunday, September 4, 2011

Hello Friends!!

I feel like it's been forever since I last posted on my blog. I'm so relieved because this week I finally resolved the long search for a daytime design internship(s). That means I can put the resume writing and portfolio maintenance to rest for a while. More importantly, now that I have a routine set for the Fall I can return my focus to my raison d'etre - my illustration career yay!! Thank goodness because it's about to be Fashion Week in New York and my schedule is exploding with exciting adventures that I'm dying to share with you all here.

A few weeks ago, the brilliant Karen Santry informed my former classmates and I, that we were being asked by Lord & Taylor to illustrate personalized sketches at this year's Fashion's Night Out on Sept 8th. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the event, it's the kick off to Fashion Week and one ENORMOUS shopping extravaganza. So if any of you readers live in New York and would like the chance to be illustrated by me or one of my talented peers, stop by the third floor of LT this thursday between 6-11 PM. I would love, love, LOVE to meet you.

To check out the event listing click here.

Lord & Taylor is located on the corner of 38th and 5th Ave.
Come Thursday Sept 8th between 6-11 PM on the third floor.

Hope to see you there!!
