Fashion Coloring Book

Happy New Year darlings! I hope you all had a fantastic celebration with your friends and families!

2016 has been a year filled with fun projects with brands that I always dreamed to work with, custom projects on Etsy and amazing collaborations on Instagram. Of course I had up and downs but I’ve learned a lot from my own mistakes. This is the first post of 2017 and I can’t wait to share with you the projects I’m currently working on! coloring book, fashion color book, adult coloring book, coloring page

Monday Coffee Illustration

Monday coffee illustration, coffee art, coffee sketch, painting with coffeeIt’s another gorgeous sunny morning here in Maryland and I wanted to start this day with a cup of delicious coffee! Hope you like coffee, because my Monday coffee illustration series is back!!! Yay! This particular sketch was inspired by very talented girl behind the blog Tara Milk Tea. I stumbled upon one of her lovely photos on IG and just couldn’t resist to do a quick coffee sketch. Hope you like it and have a great start of the week!
