Currently Listening to: Adele

I would love to see her live sometime. Hopefully I won't be relating to all of her brake up songs from experience by then. I could listen to her voice all day. (Now if I could figure out why my Photoshop wont open!?)

Dig Out the Winter Boots

Dig out the winter boots. Unpack the mittens scarves and sweaters. Get out the ribbon, scissors and shears. It is time to start decking the halls in style. 
I am excited, are you?

Friday Flowers & Apple Jelly

I am really impressed with how long the Wax Flowers (they are real, wax flower is just their name) are lasting. These are still mostly all in bright bloom three weeks later. The white ones are lasting longer then the pink. 
I also thought I would share a few shots of the delicious apple jelly that my mother made last weekend. If Anyone is interested I can share the recipe. The best part about this batch is that it is the first year we were able to use our own apples. Our solitary tree in the front yard had a bumper crop this year. I also think the fact that we now have a dog, is keeping the usual deer gang at bay. 

Happy Friday!

Here is a ink sketch done of Sasha from a Tom Ford Ad. I thought the blunt bangs made for a interesting picture. You can't go wrong when you have eyes like Sasha.

the Hart Masquerade

Here is a playful doodle I thought I would post. She holds an antler & her jacket is spotted like a fawn. I should rework the image as this was more of a preliminary sketch, I will see if I have time.

Dancing Along in DKNY

illustration: reubenvision

I was working on my Christmas card designs today & thought I would take a fashionable break. After browsing through the catwalk line-up from Donna Karan's latest collection, I decided to give this playful number a whirl on the sketch page. Gathering inspiration from Haiti DKNY has done a splendid job on their collection for spring/summer 2012. 

Hope you are all having a lovely weekend.

Autumn Arrangement DIY

photos & arrangement: reubenvision

A simple pairing of Dogwood & Snowberries. I found both occurring in the wild, but they are often grown in gardens & parks. They create a simple rustic, but fresh take on Autumn foliage and colours.
