Denim Day 2011

My friend Min works with the Korean American Family Service Center, which is a great non-profit organization "serving in the New York Tri-State area to prevent and end domestic violence and relationship abuse". Earlier this week, Min asked if I could step in and design a flyer for KAFSC's Denim Day event, and I was happy to do it! This is a wonderful organization and an important cause, and the event promises to be a good one, so if you find yourself in NYC on April 21st, be sure to check it out and lend your support!

"Right On, Red"

A lot of the stuff I work on can't be shared while the projects are in development, which often leads to a lot of radio silence over here. So with that in mind, I am throwing this drawing up in its inked stage!

"Right On, Red" is part of the fashion-inspired illustration series I kicked off in my last post. I chose to feature Cacharel's Pre-Fall line (which I lo-o-ove) this time around. I was immediately taken with the bold but simple colors and silhouettes in this collection, and the "story" came to me almost immediately. The title is a nod to Joanna Newsom's "The Book Of Right On", which I didn't hear for the first time until well after the drawing was underway; still it felt like a perfect fit!

I'd like to acknowledge the model who posed for all of the Cacharel shots, whoever she is. Her look was obviously a huge inspiration for the sisters' designs here. I think she's lovely!

Color will follow eventually!
