I sketched out these pinup girls inspired by the clothes and some of the models of @pinupgirlclothing . The pinup community is pretty diverse, and I want to depict that. #sketch #drawings #pinupgirlclothing #pinupgirls #illustration #diversity #art #artoninstagram #instaart

I know summer is long over, but I finally made something out of my Pineapple Whips fabric design: an off-shoulder, dirndl-inspired dress from the "Patterns by Gertie" line (Butterick B6322). I deviated from the sewing pattern a little bit, and added an elastic neckline and armholes instead of using seam binding, as well as added pockets because they make my life so much easier. Fully lined, all edges serged and finished, and the zipper only a *little* wonky–it's probably the cleanest garment I have ever constructed so far. #sewing #fashion #diy #sewingproject #surfacedesign #dolewhip #pineapplewhip #textiledesign #spoonflower #illustration #butterick #butterickb6322 #butterick6322 #b6322 #patternsbygertie #ootd

We are out to dinner with our good friends, The Selgas, to celebrate my birthday at The Olde Ship, and appropriately enough, I wore my London skirt, which I made from my London Ink border print available in my Spoonflower shop!

My sketch today is for a friend who expressed concern about gender roles on Facebook, and that she was having trouble finding cartoon pictures of a boy loading a dishwasher, to be used for her sons' chore chart. #drawings #draw365 #illustration #sketch #parenthood #parenting #genderroles #chorechart #dailysketch #dailydoodle #dailydrawing

Today's drawing is a portrait of my friend, Vonnie ( @vonniereader ). I owe this portrait from Friendship February. It's been months since I've done a portrait. I feel rusty. Watercolor in my watercolor Moleskine. #drawings #illustration #watercolor #dailysketch #dailydrawing #draw365 #friends #friendshipfebruary #portraitdrawing
