Linda B

Here is the latest commission I was working on recently. Beautiful Linda & her daughter!

For Linda I wanted to make something very stylish black and white; as for the picture with her daughter, I wanted to make something very spring-summery, light and with pastel, tender colors… There is blue, pink, lemon yellow, salad green…

Breath of Haute Couture

LINDA EVANGELISTA

Happy birthday to the chameleon of fashion – Linda Evangelista! One of the original REAL supermodels… Goodness, I loved the Haute Couture era of the 90’s and early 2000’s. Anticipating Linda was always accompanied with curiosity – what hair color and style will she have next? I found this picture on internet the other day with TURQUOISE hair. It’s gorgeous!

The girls – Claudia, Christy, Naomi, Linda, Cindy, Karen, Tatiana, Yasmin, Eva, Nadia… when they walked the catwalk it was MAGIC. And you know what? No one still has come close to them (except probably Doutzen Kroes and Bianca Balti)… Who is your favourite super model?

I’ve always wanted turquoise hair, as long as I remember myself.

But I don’t think I can pull it off!

Kriselda is a stylist and visualist and is particularly good with camera, hence it is no surprise the pictures she took are great. She also shot a short video about my Vallila project, have a look below!

KARLBOX x Faber-Castell

Karl Lagerfeld has teamed up with Faber-Castell, as the result the KARLBOX was created. The limited edition (2500 sets in the world) contains pencils, crayons, pastels, fineliners… It’s a dream! Who wouldn’t want to have a KARLBOX?

The box is pricey, though. And now Faber-Castell announced a world wide competition to win a KARLBOX! I saw so many artists and illustrators participating in Instagam, I just had to join in on the fun!

The contest is themed “Karl at Work” and it needed to be an illustration of him, everything Chanel, etc.

I decided to draw beautiful Kristen Stewart – I really like the red eye-shadow look for Chanel make-up campaign. And, of course Karl himself is in the illustration – doing his magic. I drew an enormous paint brush and Faber-Castell pencil as his tools!
