Where Have You Been?

So I have been on the longest hiatus ever but I'm back and ready to give my blog another try. I am very thankful for those of you who have reached out to me about my art. I love you for commissioning my work and continuing to support my craft! To answer the inevitable question of where have you been? What have you been doing? Where can I find more of your work? Are you still making work?

I moved to Arizona in the fall of 2013 I worked and helped my husband support our family and I took up commissions here and there but I did not commit myself to making art which really took a toll on me. In the fall of 2014 I had a new baby boy we named him Princeton and he has been a very demanding little infant so I have been busying myself with commissions and sketches in my free time. Shortly after my maternity leave ended and I went back to work my husband and I decided that 2 kids+no family+both of us working full time did not = happiness so we packed up and moved to Nashville Tennessee! Only 3 1/2 hours away from our family in Mississippi!

 So here we are and I'm back and so ready to paint and draw again! I have a show here in Nashville in July and I'm working on it now so stay tuned for updates! I'm committing myself to making art my job because it truly is my passion and I have a lot to say through my art! Thank you again for your continued support.

Baby Swag Illustration + Life Update

I really cannot explain how much I love to dress my son, I am always online buying him the craziest clothes and looking for new ideas. So when I stumbled across the Babies With Swag blog I was in toddler fashion heaven. This little guy was the first baby that caught my eye while I was browsing the site and I love the contrast and the pops of color in his ensemble so I couldn't pass up the opportunity to illustrate him. Isn't he so adorable.

I have decided to do a line of illustrations which I will make into a series of publications and I can't wait to share them with you and give you more details later. So be on the look out.

Also I will be going to Phoenix this weekend to find a house for myself and my family if any of you guys know of some great areas with reasonable prices please let me know. My birthday is on Friday as well so let me know where the great restaurants are. And if any of you fellow bloggers are in the area and would like to meet and greet let me know I would be so pleased to meet you.

As always thanks for reading,

Love Destiney

The Last Fashion Illustration

Hi my lovely readers, I have been living and  breathing my thesis work. I practically live in my studio, I am so focused on what I have to do to graduate and start a career that I have barely been able to think about my blog. When life is happening right before your eyes and your enjoying it the social world really isn't that important so don't forget to enjoy your life. The social world isn't going anywhere but there are only so many beautiful days with the people you love. 
This will be my last fashion illustration for awhile, I am currently working on new things that inspire me. As an artist I am constantly changing and evolving. Every day i'm inspired by someone or something new and I think that is a good thing. So don't feel discouraged you are going to love my new work I will still be uploading when i'm not busy working in the studio.
This is Frassy, she is an American girl living and working in Paris. I am simply in love with her style and her passion for paris so inspiring.
I have to go now guys but I won't be gone long! I can't wait to show you my new work I think i'm becoming more of the type of artist that suits me!
