Virtus Bags: Versace Fall 2019

Virtus bags - Versace Fall 2019 - Sublime Cravings Illustration

Here’s my illustration for the latest DrawADot. open call, which celebrates the launch of Versace Virtus bag. For the open call, illustrators were asked to make Virtus bags the focus of the illustration. We were encouraged to be creative and use Versace’s fall 2019 collection for inspo. Because the collection was all about Donatella’s take on 90s grunge (think grunge elements but with the quintessential Versace elements of bold colors, patterns, bondage harnesses, and oversized safety pins), I decided to do a modern take on the Versace ad campaigns of the 90’s.

A Tribute to Karl Lagerfeld: Chanel Spring 2016 RTW

Sublime Cravings Illustration - Chanel Spring 2016 - Tribute to Lagerfeld

I recently participated in Draw A Dot.’s open call, A Tribute to Karl Lagerfeld. Above is my submission, which was among the top 9 pieces selected to be displayed on Draw A Dot.’s Instagram account. If you are interested in checking out all the amazing submissions to the open call, you can find them on Draw A Dot.’s Facebook page.

Karl Lagerfeld’s Chanel runway shows weren’t just about presenting his beautiful designs, but were also intended to be an experience all unto itself. This illustration features looks from Chanel’s Spring 2016 RTW airport themed collection. When discussing his vision of the show and collection Lagerfeld said, “It’s the idea of how it should look.” So for this illustration, I decided to extend Lagerfeld’s vision and glam air travel aesthetic beyond the airport terminal by bringing the sophistication and whimsy of his collection out onto the literal runway.

Lust Worthy: Snakeskin Print Over-The-Knee Boots

Current Cravings

This is the final piece in a series of 3 illustrations featuring mixed animal prints. Over-the-knee animal print boots are such a bold statement piece, so I was determined to create an illustration that highlights the unapologetic vibe of the boots. Honestly, I feel that featuring these lust worthy snakeskin print over-the-knee boots in the final illustration was the best way to end the series on a high note. And of course I just had to double down on animal prints by pairing the boots with a leopard print dress.

Custom Portraits by Sublime Cravings

Custom portrait commission - Sublime Cravings Illustration

Let me draw you, or a loved one, in my illustration style. My approach to creating custom illustrations is that it’s not just about drawing a likeness, it’s about capturing your vibe. For each and every portrait I draw, I aim to create something beautiful and unique, just like you.

Custom portraits make a great one-of-a-kind keepsake or gift. It’s a way to capture a special moment, like a graduation or anniversary. Also, it’s a lovely alternative to the standard head shot. Imagine using a beautiful illustration of you as an avatar image for your social media accounts and the image on your “About” page on your website.

Or you could just get a custom illustration simply because you’d like to have one. Because honestly you don’t need a specific reason or occasion to commission a custom portrait of yourself, or a loved one.

There were so many covet worthy pieces in Marc Jacobs’ Fall 2019 collection, but Adut Akech in this yellow gown was definitely a highlight of the runway show. The model was nothing short of stunning in an off-the-shoulder tiered taffeta gown, which was paired with a beanie decorated with feathers.

Grammys 2019: Lady Gaga in Céline

Current Cravings

At this year’s Grammys, Lady Gaga embodied 80’s rock and roll glam in a metallic Céline strapless dress. Her silver sequined dress featured a thigh-high slit and a sculptural ruffle detail on one side of the gown. She was definitely one of my favorite looks from this year’s Grammys.

Runway Look: Givenchy Couture Spring 2019

Current Cravings

Typically when I think of latex, I don’t think haute couture. However, in Givenchy’s latest couture collection, Clare Waight Keller moved beyond preconceived notions of latex to create pieces that were intricate, luxe and thoroughly modern. This particular look mixes lace, pearls and latex. It’s a combination I would have never expected to work, but I must admit this particular incarnation is divine.

Red Leopard Dress: Stand Out, Don’t Blend In

Red Leopard Dress - Stand Out Don't Blend In - Sublime Cravings

As you can see from my latest illustration, my preoccupation with animal print continues.

When you think of the color palette associated with traditional animal prints, usually earth tone shades come to mind. Which makes sense, because these prints are inspired by animal markings that serve as camouflage in their natural environment. And although my love for traditional animal prints endures, I can’t get enough of all the great dresses, shoes, pants (and so much more) that feature animal prints in bold attention grabbing colors. Case in point, this divine red leopard dress. Wearing an animal print in a bold color is all about standing out, not blending in.
