SKETCH PROMPTS

Between freelance jobs, I tend to set challenges for myself to see where my creativity takes me.

Below is a collection of those "sketching prompts." 

PLUS SIZE MET GALA

This year I was actually shocked that we still do not have a lot of plus size representation at the Met Gala. And now, as I watch people zooming around the garment district preparing for fashion week, I felt a strong urge to correct that. I am challenging myself to post a plus size design based on the MET Gala's themes every week until the next one. 

SOUND WARRIORS

I wanted to create a series of warriors based on the voices of some of my fellow designers. I listened to them talk about their passion for their craft and tracked the cadence of their voice. I then turned that into a series of continuous line drawings depicting each designer as their "inner warrior."

MERMAIDS FROM FOUND OBJECTS

I took pictures and collected trash by my local river. I took those found objects, and created a series of mermaids.
