All anybody can talk about is Gatsby and Punk, so we put them together. Yeah!
Spent the weekend trying to color inside the lines.
practicing with paper
I actually really enjoy drawing and making squiggles, but you’d never guess it because I haven’t done much doodling since college. And even then it was just in the margins of my notebooks.
Well, you’re only 29-years-old. Never too late to pick up coloring again.
Favorite thing I found on Tumblr today.
Beautiful quote about giving without expecting anything in return. A story worth sharing again and again.
I didn’t make this one, but had to share because it’s cheesecake. Also, what lovely handwriting!
Cheesecake Idea Brainstorm
…is the best kind of brainstorm.

Thanks for all your birthday wishes today. All things considered, the first day of my twenty-ninth year went well; I even took a boxing class for the first time. My wrists and forearms took the worst of the beating and I’m pretty sure I fractured something.Who needs arms anyway?
I love andydrawscats:
happy birthday amy cao! (i wouldn’t eat that cake though, there might be cat food in it)
Happiness is a dog and a cat. It’s an illustration created by your coworker with the app you love with all your heart. It’s a sunny day in Brooklyn and a “blackberry red wine chocolate cake with strawberries on top” inspired by love & olive oil.
Happy birthday to the amazing Amy Cao, who keeps this Tumblr blog fresh with inspiring work and makes us smile with her vibrant charm. Here’s to another year on Earth with you, Amy!
spring is here almost, maybe
It’s been a tough winter. This, coming from someone born and raised here, in Brooklyn, who should be accustomed to the bitter cold and dry air that characterizes many New York City winters, but isn’t. If you haven’t experienced the cold here, I can only describe it as aggressive. Your body is perpetually tense, trying to protect the small amount of heat it’s able to generate. Even your eyeballs get cold. Winter in New York is a popular conversation topic for all the wrong reasons.
But the day always returns when you’re caught by surprise because it’s six o’clock and the sun hasn’t set yet, when you’re able to venture out without your Eskimo outfit. Extended daylight hours and additional degrees Fahrenheit may not seem like much to celebrate, but if you survive a winter in New York – this winter, especially, with seemingly everyone getting sick – you know it is.

made with paper new york fashion week
The live sketches created by FiftyThree during Fashion Week were featured in a two-page spread in Women’s Wear Daily this week. I could not be more proud to be part of this team.
This week I am working with FiftyThree to showcase live sketches of major runway shows during New York Fashion Week. Out of the sketches from the five shows we’ve attended so far, this beautiful rendering of an Oscar de la Renta gown is my favorite, created using Paper by the talented Danielle Meder, a fashion illustrator based in Toronto who flew in to work with us.
Follow along at WWD On Paper and learn more about Danielle’s work on her site, Final Fashion. I especially love the blog post in which she describes her collaboration with Fiftythree as “the most exciting project of my career so far.”

live sketching new york fashion week
FiftyThree and Women’s Wear Daily have teamed up again, this time to live sketch New York Fashion Week.
I’m really, really excited to be working on this project with FiftyThree. In a time when anyone can click a button to snap a photo, there’s something magical about seeing what the storyteller—in this case the artist—wants you to see.

I was visiting a million websites and Tumblrs as I do each morning when I saw this. My first thought was: Cute! Looks like me cuddling a cat.
Wait a minute… That is me cuddling a cat.
Beautiful sketch made with Paper by Ghurka designer and my new friend, Janelle Sing.
Janelle joined FiftyThree today to help us live sketch the WWD Apparel & Retail CEO Summit in New York City.
Over the next two days, FiftyThree will create a visual record of the insights presented by thought leaders of the fashion industry, including Marc Jacobs, Mickey Drexler of J. Crew Group and Karl Lagerfeld of Chanel.
