Illustrations for Marie Claire Magazine

Happy Wednesday My Loves,

I'm so excited to be back on the blog again sharing with you another fantastic illustration project I worked on. Marie Claire Magazine approached me to illustrate a series of shoe designs and pattern for a stylish, little giftable, notebook they were producing. It was one of those 'pinch-me' moments where I realized I was actually living my dream. When I came to New York to pursue my Fashion Illustration AAS at the Fashion Institute of Technology back in 2009, I told our Chair of Illustration that all I really wanted to do was illustrate shoes...and finally I was. 

In the end, my illustrations were used on the Marie Claire Shoes First notebook, tote, and invitation for their event with Saks Fifth Avenue. Fortunately I was able to attend the event and snagged some awesome instagram shots holding all my illustrated swag. It didn't take long to see my tote bag hitting the streets either!! I happened to catch a very chic New Yorker toting her tote on the 1 train to work and perhaps that was the greatest moment of all. I've always wanted to see people living with my illustrations in a functional, multipurpose way, and I finally have. 

Cheers to pursuing your dreams and making them happen in the baddest city of all: NYC!!

Much love,
Meag xx

Happy Sunday My Lovelies,

I hope you've all had a fantastic weekend. I'm thrilled to share with you an illustration project I worked on for the newly launched Candelabox is a subscription service for high-end scented candles. They discover the best products for you based on your fragrance profile and deliver on a monthly basis. I absolutely loved the concept and wanted my illustrations to reflect the evocative nature of fragrances and the premium service of Candelabox.

Head over to the beautiful and see for yourself.

Much love,
Meag xx
