Making our happy contagious


Last night's dinner party was probably one the best family holidays to date... and to top to off, it was also the first time that I prepared the Thanksgiving meal. I wanted to do it right, where even the silk flowers seemed to serve a purpose, so I headed to Target for all my decorating needs and Whole Foods for the rest.

It felt pretty magical. 

Hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving!

At the time, I'd only been drawing for about a month, which means the designs you're seeing are some of my very first artworks! Brainstorming endless possibilities, the process began with a series of sketches, clipart graphics, and silhouette collages until I further conceptualized the vision by deciding to submit only my illustrations.  After presenting numerous options, Graziano and the team exclusively selected their top picks... and after several months of diligence, reworking, and constant communication, my artwork was transformed into a beautiful line of ecru shirts forever deemed, Vintage Lollipops x M…
