As some of you may recall , if you saw my last post and /or on Instagram , this past Saturday , I sketched live with Giorgio Armani for their event at Saks Fifth Avenue, in Maryland. I sketched from 10:30 until 7 pm with a short break in between for a quick bite. Sketching beautiful people to music for 8 straight hours – nothing to complain about . It was a busy , fun filled energetic day as clients got their makeover done by celebrity make artist Tim Quinn and designer Jesus Estrada along with the Armani beauty team .
I was asked to create sketches of clients in about 15 minutes or less . I chose to do a mix of watercolors , ink and pens. I love doing the quick washes in watercolors and ink and refining it with pen. I started out doing 15 minute sketches , but as the day went by and it got busier in the afternoon . I had to hammer out sketches in less than 10 minutes. But, I love a challenge 🙂
Here’s some of the behind the scenes look and some of the sketches at the event. Enjoy and I’d love to hear your thoughts !
And , thank you all for the support you’ve given me on this crazy journey of mine in the world of illustration. It almost seemed impossible when I started out, but reading your comments, emails and messages keeps me going . I truly value your support !
