Ringing in the New Year in Style? My Latest Fashionista Sketch Takes Life

Since Josephine’s last appearance here was on December 21st, you may well be wondering what she’s been up to!  The truth is that she’s been tapping her (high) heels at me in frustration since my attention has been elsewhere – namely, “Nutting” (my 29th Nutcracker show of the season was yesterday…and I still have 5 to go!) and Illustrating!

Yes, sometimes Josephine has to take a back seat to other fashionista lovelies.  In this case, my client has commissioned 5 fashionista illustrations, and I’m having a ball working on them.  When they are finished and up on her site, I’ll be sure to post a link.

But there’s still hope for Josephine.  And if there’s time, I may just be able to help her get ready for her New Year’s Eve bash tomorrow night…

2014 Fashionista

I hope you’ll be celebrating, too!

    • Thank you so much, Deborah! It’s already 2014 in Italy, but I’ll still wish you a very Happy New Year! I look forward to staying in touch and seeing what you’re up too. Are you still posting on your blog? I thought I subscribed, but haven’t gotten any of you post notifications. If you’ve been posting, do you mind re-sending me your blog address so I can resubscribe?

    • Thanks so much for the encouragement, Andrea! I just posted “Josephine” in her New Year’s outfit…and I’m headed off to have a late dinner (and lots of champagne) with my husband.

      Happy New Year to you and Dennis! I hope 2014 brings all good things (and maybe a chance for us to get together:-)

  3. Happy New Year! I also have a big project that I’ve been struggling to finish, what with playing Xmas concerts, and now a NYE concert. Luckily, I have more vacation in a few days!

    • Thanks, Helen! And a very happy New Year to you, too. I bet you are in the middle of your concert right now…I’ve already “Nutted” for the day. Now I get to drink a 1/2 bottle of champagne. (The other half is for Andy;-)

      XOX – Joana
