Hello My Lovelies!! 

How has your week been?! It's after midnight in New York but I'm dying to get my new post up on the blog as it has already been another seven days since I last updated here. The great news is that the wonderful collaborations and commissions keep coming in, but that allows infinitely less time to connect with all of you amazing and inspiring individuals on here. I'm trying to negotiate with the universe to make the days longer but there seems to be some pushback...

Anywho, I'm thrilled to share with you this fashion illustration gif I did of my friend and fabulous model/blogger Ania of Ania.B. Her pose is so dynamic in front of this stunning James Wyper mural in Calgary, Canada. I have been following Ania's blog for the past four years now so when I saw her post this photo on Instagram the other day, my heart practically leapt from my chest. It was a 'no ifs, ands, or buts' kind of illustration inspiration. It was mine to draw, so I did, and boy did it feel good!!

Much more to come on the blog so stay tuned my loves, but for now it is time for the ZZZzzzzzz. My eyes are closing as I type this. See all you beautiful people soon!!

Much love,
Meag xx

The Style Line: West Village With Meagan Morrison

Thursday, June 19, 2014

Happy Thursday My Lovelies!!

I hope you've all had a great week so far. I can't believe seven days have passed since I last posted on my blog, but I assure you it is with good reason. I am SO thrilled to share with you my feature with the beautiful website!! This past Saturday I spent the afternoon with the site's founder, Rachel Schwartzmann, and for the first time opened the door to my bedroom/studio to be photographed and showcased online. I also took her to my most coveted spots in the West Village, my neighborhood of four years now. I had an absolute blast hanging with Rachel and our hair and make-up artist Desiree and highly suggest you head over to this gorgeous site NOW.

Much love,
Meag xx

Colors of Brazil Collaboration with!!

Thursday, June 12, 2014


FIFA World Cup Brazil 2014 has FINALLY arrived and with it comes the launch of my Colors of Brazil collaboration with online art gallery!! I have been working with the UGallery team behind the scenes for the past four weeks to curate a collection of art, available to purchase on their site, that felt like the colors of Brazil I experienced back in March. To add an extra special layer to the partnership, I illustrated three brand spanking NEW custom pieces to sit and sell alongside the curation that drew inspiration from my journey to the heart of Rio.

The first piece titled I Am Ipanema references an aerial view of Ipanema Beach, from the bright umbrellas to the jade colored waters. The illustration titled Tijuca is painted in honor of the hand-planted rainforest that hugs the winding road to Corcovado and Cristo Redentror. The final illustration, Favela Fever draws inspiration from the gorgeously colored and cascading urban homes in the hills of Rio. For those of you who know me personally and or follow my Instagram account @TravelWriteDraw you know how deeply moved I was by my travels through Brazil.

This collaboration offered the perfect opportunity to commemorate my memories there and continue building new ones too. To read more on my curation Colors of Brazil and my favorite parts of Rio de Janeiro, peep my interview with the UGallery blog team here and click the image below to see what all the fuss is about!!

Good Evening My Darlings,

I hope you've all had a great start to your weekend!! I am up to my eyeballs in projects at the moment and just coming up for air to post some new works on the blog (more on the new projects later ;). I titled this post #INSTALOVES in reference to both the speed and nature in which I illustrated these pieces. I have been collecting amazing street style tears for the past 6 weeks and challenging myself to illustrate one a night in under 20 mins each.

Postcard from Buenos Aires

Monday, June 2, 2014

Hello Darlings, finally I finished my postcard from beautiful Buenos Aires after much deliberation. She embodies both the feminine and masculine sensuality of tango and wears the vibrant La Boca neighborhood on her shirt. This is a mixed media illustration with colored paper, acrylic paint, and ink. She exemplifies not only my growth as an illustrator but also just how greatly I was marked by my trip to Argentina. The memories stay with me daily as does the cultural joie de vivre.

Greg and I arrived at our apartment in Palermo Hollywood, BA on Wednesday March 19th, 2014 and immediately fell in love with the charm of the city.

We wander(lusted) through the shops of Palermo Soho en route to the tranquil Jardin Japones.
With luck in our back pockets, we found our way to the steps of Malba (Museum of Latina American Art of Buenos Aires) just in time for Mario Testino's exhibition In Your Face.

Good Morning My Loves,

I hope you all had a rocking weekend! The weather was absolutely stunning in New York (finally my prayers were answered!!) but I spent the majority of my time cooking up new illustration moodboards and sketches for projects and commissions currently on the table. For those of you who follow me on my Instagram @travelwritedraw, this post will likely seem a little redundant, but I wanted to share with all my blog followers some really fun features I have had these past few weeks.

I've been burning rubber illustrating every day and feeling like I'm encountering a style evolution. Most of you know me for my more tightly rendered pieces but my Spring Awakening is bringing about my fast free spirit and it's getting lovely reactions across Social Media. Four weeks ago Moschino featured my work on their Instagram here and a little over a week ago, my absolute street style muse Zanita Whittington featured me on both her Instagram and Blog here and here!!

Needless to say, I'm BEYOND touched by the love I've gotten for my work. Click read more below for a list of additional recent press features and thank you from the bottom of my heart for the continued support!!
