Telling Time

So lately I've been on this hunt for the perfect new watch. I l-o-v-e the look of the Rolex watches, but *sigh* it's not exactly in my budget at the moment :/  In the meantime, I found some potentials. They're all beautiful and each deserving of a home which makes it difficult to narrow down to just one!

Fashion Illustrations

Fashion illustration has increasingly become widely recognized, especially within the fashion blogging community.  I've always had an appreciation for sketches and drawings in various forms of media, particularly pencil and watercolor.  What's captured my attention are the brilliant renderings that blend traditional mediums as the foundation of the illustration and are later reworked in Photoshop.  The collage showcases some of my recent favorite illustrations; a collection of eclectic, figurative and pop-culture inspired drawings.  View the portfolios of the featured artists Katharine Asher, Paul Holland, Masha Karpushina and Max Gregor at
