Over the past few months I've been on a quest to figure out my illustration style, and I've finally landed in place that feels right to me. I love using monochromatic color palettes to create colorful human forms with big swoopy hair with expressions of strength and self-awareness. The women I draw are a reflection of who I hope to be: bold, resilient & Unfuckwittable.

I'm excited to add onto the world of these characters and continue to put in the work to refine my illustration style even further.

I first discovered Vasya's work a few years back when she's was working on a collection of illustrations that focused on neon lights. I rediscovered her work recently and fell in love with her digital illustrations of footwear.

Halpern Studio

If I was some sort of movie star or musician, Halpern Studio would be my emerging designer of choice to rock on the runway. I love all of the contrasting sequin patterns, 70s silhouettes that scream updated Studio 54 glamour. Their latest collection is a must-see.
