When you have a bunch of talented people in the same room, magic is bound to happen. Well, first, you have to have a chat full of talented people making plans, decisions and working their asses to make it all come together.
Art Off The Clock was born, and we couldn’t be prouder. We all planned an art auction that was held at the quirky Harlem Nights Bar. Just seeing the place from the outside makes you curious as to what’s going on indoors, and once you walked in, there was no disappointment.
A room full of painters, designers, photographers, and a pyrographer, all excited to share their art. Dj J Fuse, set the vibe up beautifully and our host Joe Hill had everyone cracking up.
This is only the beginning to all we plan on doing, and we can’t wait to share all the fun with you. Check out a re-cap of our first event above and follow us on instagram for upcoming events…. (we actually have one up coming soon, and it’s gonna be sooo good.)
See you guys soon!

This drawing that I created gives me all types of Peg Bundy vibes. Maybe it’s all the leopard and half pinup-ed hair. When I saw Shaina‘s blue hair, I fell in love. yes this make up artist is extremely talented with a set of brushes, but what always leave me in awe is the crazy colors she puts on her hair. It makes me miss all of my the times I used to dye my hair. Shaina is the absolute sweetest, so I had no hesitation when starting this piece. I love when my illustrations make others happy and her reaction did not disappoint!
Catch you guys later,
Oh, and don’t forget to see more of my illustrations on my instagram, and you can see Shaina’s work on HERE. and her Youtube HERE.

I didn’t know that when I finished this piece I was going to be drooling over her shirt that way. Sometimes I surprise myself with the things I create, and the see-through blouse she’s rocking, needs to be in my closet, like yesterday!

It seems like most of my feed on my instagram is all about fitness at the moment. A lot of his to do with the fact that I went a following spree ever since I started to work out. Yes, you read that right. It’s been a long month, but I’m so happy I decided to take care of myself a little bit better.
I know I have some extra weight on me, but I honestly couldn’t care less. I wanted to better my health and for me to do that, I need to focus on making better choices. Plus all the extra endorphins has left me in such a great mood lately! Talk about win-win.
My dad is the perfect workout partner, we meet up after work do our best to keep each other motivated. We have the cutest little routine when it comes to working on our abs (or lack thereof) .
I drew this illustration in honor of this new chapter in my life. Though my butt looks nothing close to that (gooooals) Here’s to hoping it’s not just a stage, but a lifestyle change. Wish me luck guys….

I absolutely love when I get fun and quirky commissions. Michellle wanted me to capture her on a unicorn float. It was such a fun concept that reminded me of an older illustration I did, see that HERE. I knew I had to give it a different spin.
Michelle is such a vibrant person and adding different shades of pink and browns like mauve and taupe and make it pop with hints of magenta and fuchsia. The color combo is something I definitely have to try again.
If you will like to order your own illustration you can see my rates and contact me HERE.

Bloggers, there are everywhere. When you’re one yourself, you tend to gravitate to other bloggers, and they somehow become like your virtual little family—in a non creepy way of course.
One of the many personalities that I tend to follow on instagram is Taza from lovetaza.com. She’s about to burst out twins, and when I saw this most adorable picture of her eating fruit, I picked up my apple pencil and got to work.
This is only the second time I’ve drawn a pregnant woman, (see the first HERE) and I gotta say, I don’t hate it. Maybe I should start a series. (We’ll see, because I may just be brainstorming out loud here)
I love the colors I used, purple just always seems to sneak into my work somehow, how do you always do that purple?
I hope you guys like this illustration, and if you’re curious enough, she recently gave birth to two healthy girls, you can read that post HERE.

Finding a balance between my 9-5, my photography sessions and illustration seems to be a juggling act I’m still trying to ace. My momma got on me yesterday for drawing while watching a movie. “This isn’t how you relax”.
“But, I am relaxing, I can be productive and relax at the same time”
She just looked at me and laughed. I continued to watch my movie and draw at the same time.
This illustration is inspired by glowprincesss and her gorgeous ways.
