Live Sketching at Bloomingdales

I had a blast live sketching at Bloomingdale’s biggest beauty event of the year, “The Makeup Date”! I created personalized fashion illustrations for guests while Jane Monzures of WGN TV’s “Living Healthy Chicago” delivered the scoop on the top new season beauty trends.

I brought my collection of Copic markers and used Canson multipurpose paper for my sketches. When I sketch live, I like to define lines with colored pencils. Caran d’Ache are my favorite colored pencils because they don’t smear when layering with marker or paint!

I am lucky to have sketched such a great crew on Saturday, a very special thank you to everyone who came to The Makeup Date! 

Shout out to everyone at Bloomingdales and 900 North Michigan Shops who put together this amazing event. Thank you for having me! ♥️
