Travel Illustration Focusing on Women

Ladies grab your bikinis and meet at the 'female only’ beach resort. These illustrations were for the New York Times Travel section about travel type packages marketed specifically for women.
Seems fitting with the summer sneaking by so fast. 

I love the deco feel of the profile one, in general I love the deco period of the 20s-30s with the streamline machine-like style. I do appreciate the amazing fashion illustration from that same time period.

I am recently back from the West Coast,
first I flew into San Francisco, one of my favorite cities. It was a chilly time in SF. As Mark Twain said, " The coldest winter I spent was a summer in San Francisco."
I agree Mark.
This time I got to the De Young Museum. What strikes me about museums outside NYC is how viewable the exhibits are. Less people, more space. There is something comfortable about this. I can study the works of art in my time without waiting. Less crowds, more space, and a smaller museum, less viewing fatigue.

The Conference was amazing,
I am glad I went. These ICONs are
necessary for our freelance profession.
Meeting people, talking, interacting, all good.
I left feeling very inspired.

I wanted to thank everyone for making me have such awesome laughs!
Made my sides hurt! Just the kind of ab work I needed.

Back in New York now, and Moving!
I am moving to Red Hook Brooklyn next week. Plus moving into a new
studio to a place I've been itching to get into. Thanks David.
