UNVEILED by Laredo Montoneri

Tuesday, June 21, 2016

Hello Again Loves,

I'm so excited and honored to share with you these portraits that my dear friend, and former coworker, Laredo Montoneri took of me in my home for his personal project UNVEILED. Laredo has been photographing creatives in their natural habitat, from amazing dancers to uber talented jewelry designers, and sharing it across his social platforms. I'm in absolute awe of the results and couldn't wait to have him come to my apartment in Brooklyn to photograph me in my element...

The painting you see above is from my first gallery show this past New York Fashion Week. I wore this same dress the night of the event. I think the memory of that moment was clearly with me at the time he took this picture.

The above photo is one of my favorites...a moment of pure happiness!! I believe it takes a lot of trust with a photographer to really let your guard down. Laredo and I, if nothing else, make each other laugh...

Nothing brings me greater joy than being alone with my thoughts in front of a blank canvas, my paints, and brushes. The possibility to create and bring color and life into the universe is endless...

I find it really difficult to make direct eye contact with people I don't know, and often shy away from staring directly into a camera lens, which is why I found this last photo to be really moving. Now more than ever, I don't want to shy away from anyone, especially myself. I guess this is the truest definition of being unveiled.

I would like to extend an enormous thank you to Laredo for this very special experience. You can see more of his work over at laredomontoneri.com!!

Much love,
Meag xx

Illustrated Postcards for Emirates Airlines!!

Tuesday, June 21, 2016

Good Afternoon My Loves, 

I'm so thrilled to share with you these custom illustrated postcards I created in partnership with Emirates and MyDomaine.com, to highlight the top 6 amenities to enjoy during their new evening A380 flight service from LAX to DXB starting July 1. It was such an honor to work on these illustrations, given my personal affinity for Emirates Airlines and the always awe-inspiring U.A.E!! From catching up on your favorite shows, to savouring a cocktail at their fully stocked onboard bar, or freshening up in the shower spa with Bulgari toiletries, the flight is as much the destination as the city itself.

*Amenities available in First Class on the Emirates A380; select amenities available in Business and Economy Classes.

Now please excuse me while I dream of boarding this flight myself starting next month...

Much love,
Meag xx

Dream of your outfits and the perfect backdrop for a gorgeous photo...

Catch-up on all those movies you missed and your favorite shows...

Enjoy a cocktail or two at their fully-stocked onboard bar...

Before landing, have a spa experience in the onboard shower...

And don't forget all the delicious cuisine you get to indulge in during your 16hr flight...

My Quitter Story with @FohrCard

Good Morning My Loves,

A couple weeks ago I invited the lovely team over at Fohr Card into my home to share my quitter story. By that I mean the story of leaving Toronto for NYC to pursue my dream of fashion illustration, and again when I left my corporate job here to run Travel Write Draw full-time. Check out the video above and the full interview over on their blog here!!

I'm heading out on my next overseas adventure shortly so stay tuned for updates!!

Much love,
Meag xx
