Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Part I


Sunday I fell in love with artist Jennifer Horn’s Google Doodle in honor of Audrey Hepburn’s 85th birthday. It also gave me a great excuse to get back to my own illustrated Breakfast at Tiffany’s series. My first sketch (above) is inspired from the Five & Dime scene (animal masks!) and will be illustrated in gouache. More art from the Breakfast at Tiffany’s

And since I am interior-obsessed, one of my favorite onscreen NYC apartments is Holly Golightly’s minimalistic one-bedroom. I love the set design so much; the pops of fuchsia, zebra rug, milk crates…and of course her incredible bathtub love seat!!

    Her apartment makes me proud to be livin’ sparse 😀 Love your illustration too.
