BDay ABC Wishlist

Its exactly one month until my 27th birthday and I'm super excited. I can't believe it 27...the ironic thing is that around this time of year a FAQ I get is "hey I bet your excited to be out of high school, what college are you going to?" LOL you should see the looks I get when I tell people how old I am, but hey that's a great problem to have I can only imagine the looks I'll get when I'm 37.'s a mini wishlist of the things I want and things I'll be getting this year.


Art Supplies

I get the same high from art supply shopping as I do for, these are some essentials that I will be adding to my studio in the near future. I'm desperately in need of a new easel and paint.


This is just a small fraction of the 200-some odd books that I have on my Barnes and Noble wishlist. Right now it currently consists of Advertising, Cinematography, Art of (insert your fav movie), painting, and Fashion books. I'm always adding to it sometimes on a daily basis.


these are just a few of my favorite pieces from F21, Topshop and Asos.

"You betta woooooork..."

I spent most of today looking for fashion graphic design + fashion advertising jobs in LA, NY, and Toronto today so I thought I would post these pics as inspiration. Now off to work on a media kit for my freelance business, I hope everyone is having a great day!

photography by Maurice Williams

Hi guys, I just wanted to share some photos from my friend's trip to Rawanda last year. I've been in love with these photos from the moment I saw them because they're so inspiring. I always find it so remarkable how the children and people have so much resilience and joy regardless of the adversity they face on a daily basis. A true testament of the human spirit.

Lastly I wanted to wish all the amazing fathers out there a very happy and relaxing father's day. And to my dad, thank you for letting me stand on your feet while you danced with me, teaching me how to draw, watching Chicago Bulls games with me, and for al around being a big goof ball. I love you dearly.

Friday Funday

Hey Hey party people, I trust you all are having a great Friday and a wonderful start to your father's day weekend. Today I was asked to photograph myself working on sketches of storyboards for a new client that are going to be featured on their blog so I thought I would share the photos here as well. On a sidenote I also took a pic of my outfit, I haven't been posted many "outfit" blog entries but I think I may start doing more. Its amazing how what you wear effects your mood and in my case my work. So much of my work is influenced by fashion that I figured I may as well start doing more outfit posts.

Step Into My Office

shots of my studio/office

Oh Ms James how I love your style

Hello lovers, since I was down all week with my allergy/flu bug-thing-a-ma-jimmy I've been spending most of the night working on sketches of storyboards for a client that are due bright and early Monday Morning. I have studio space set up at my house HOWEVER I don't have a chair that supports my back which means I always end up sketching on my needless to say that brings me to the point of why I posted this quickie blog of office inspiration! I thought I would do a little musing of spaces while I took a break from drawing. I have come to the conclusion that when I buy a house I'll need two extra rooms for an office and studio space....or maybe I could find a really cool Mid-Century Modern house with a detached studio in the backyard...*sigh* *tilts head and looks up into the air as the daydream ensues*


Curl Me Baby!

Miss Jessie's Original world famous Curly Pudding is a "smooth operator" that transforms shrunken kinks to super shiny stretched out curls.

Apply a palm full of Curly pudding to damp freshly shampooed and conditioned hair. Rake through large sections and air dry. For maximum elongation comb a nickel sized dollop through small sections and air dry.

I had been looking for products to use on my hair so I could wear it curly more often so one of my besties suggested Miss Jessie's products. I haven't tried them yet but I love their site there's a host of tutorials, pictures and tips on how to get perfect, springy curls!! Check them out, Happy Curls Girls!!
