June Updates + New Comics

This month I returned to my old Fashion Institute roots and freelanced at Juicy Couture sketching handbags for Juicy + Cole Haan. I also assisted with summer 2015 concepts; what fun! Here are my sketches of some older items (can’t show anything unreleased).

I have been completely obsessed with Game of Thrones, and since Sunday was the finale, I made my own comic countdown. I also used this as a great excuse to return to drawing weekly comics, just for fun. You can follow my comics on Tumblr here: artsparrowcomics.com.

In addition to Game of Thrones comics, I started drawing character portraits again. Below is Tyrion Lannister, one of my favorite characters in the series, while the background birds I borrowed from my own unfinished Arya painting.

027AT_Katie_027 Designer Carlos Fernández (below) of CreoCreo Studio has interior design skills that took my breath away.

“carlos’ loft is a visual playground that is
full of surprises; it’s like the willy wonka factory of interior design.”

And who could forget James Bolenbaugh back in March? His apartment is an absolute masterpiece, and I’m also proud of the portrait I shot of James that reminded AT commenters of a painting.

My logo design package for Studio 88 (ie. Principal Architect, Argiris Giorgou) is now complete. Argiris hasn’t officially launched his new branding, so I can’t show the logo just yet, but more design to follow. So here is a random sketch + gouache palette that have nothing to do with anything:

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!!
