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!
