I remember well, it was 2009 the first time I ever set foot at the Society of Illustrators to attend the event “The Line of Fashion” curated by the super iconic illustrator Robert W Richards, my dear friend and member of that society group. (See the video HERE).
So, of course I didn’t think twice about saying yes when Scooter LaForge invited me to come along to model, some of my looks created by him, at a special Sketch Night dedicated to him at the Society of Illustrators, hosted by artist Ted Michalowski.
It was a marvelous feeling to be in a room filled with young and established illustrators who were given sets of 5 or 10 minutes to draw you. Scooter also invited Jorge Clar and Rachel Singer, who are also both collectors of LaForge’s clothing lines; so we took turns in the small center stage. Believe me, I found out it is not quite an easy job to be standing still, for any amount of minutes, posing in an elaborate and heavy ensemble, but at the same time it was a magnificent experience to be in that prestigious organization.
Below are some of the illustrations – of the three looks I styled – that attendees posted on Instagram. You should also look for #s for Jorge Clar and SparklePrincess (Rachel Singer).
