Creative Director Jen Sheeler from FAME does it again. Another lovely invite for the worthy cause of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Here’s what the agency had to say about the project for their recognition in GRAPHIS 2018 :
It can be tough to convince the black-tie crowd to get spiffy again right after the holidays. Apparently many of them suffer from ‘event fatigue’ so it’s critical to convince them that your event is worthy. So when Fame client St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital partnered with the Golden Globes for a private screening gala in multiple markets, Fame romanced the fun of getting gussied up and going out to see the stars claim their hard-won prizes. (All to benefit the kids and families of St. Jude.) Original fashion-sketch-style illustrations were donated by a local artist, and the vibrant red truly broke through in both traditional and digital channels.
“Local artist” would be moi. : )
Sometimes challenging to fit 10 artists on a two page spread! And they are all so talented…oh to have a single page for each of them. What fun that would be!
Mailing now! Thank you to Jen Sheeler, Creative Director at FAME for including me in this worthy cause. Fundraiser for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. I painted the originals in watercolor on 140# hot press Arches paper.
Experimented on scan with curves in photoshop. Interesting, but client was looking for the more traditional look of fashion illustration.
Yea, well, not exactly what the client had in mind! I would definitely shop at an electronics store whose product photos looked like this.

Bill Vaught made a bequest to me of artifacts and tools from his father’s estate,saying, “I don’t know what most of this stuff is, but it seems related to whatever it is that you do.” The elder Vaught was an Art Director back in the hey days of the ‘60s at one of the big agencies in Chicago.
Working with Michael Walters, stylist, on a Target photo shoot. We went a bit bonkers discussing how, suddenly, we have fallen in love with black doors, black trim and ivory walls. Not only black, but black with a bit of gloss! Don’t tell the matte police.
