Happy one year Anniversary

I've barely had time to blink, yet how can a whole year pass by already? What a whirlwind! Little did I think last April, that My JetSetter life would come so far. What started out as a little idea to build my illustration portfolio, whilst combining my love of travel and vintage travel posters, has now started to grow and open doors.

Last year the Avalon Hotel Beverly Hills used one of my illustrations for an event they were hosting, which has developed into a very exciting collaboration with the Viceroy Miami (stay tuned, as there's more to follow on that soon). A fantastic shoutout from LA designers Trina Turk and Mr Turk for some of my illustrations for their Spring 2015 collection. My JetSetter Life maps and illustrations are now being sold in their first store at Local Take San Francisco in the Castro, and a poster I designed for Palm Springs Style, inspired by the Coachella music festival will feature in their second issue of Palm Springs Style magazine.

Beautiful illustrations don't just magically happen on their own (I wish they did!) Lot's of late nights and weekends are spent concepting, sketching and trying out lot's of ideas to reach the final finished pieces. Here are just a few of the behind the scene shot's from last February and April, leading up to My JetSetter's life debut.

Thank You to everyone for your love and support, and thanks for following xx


Sunset Tower

Nothing is more iconic than this art deco hotel on the Sunset Strip. Designed in 1929, originally as an apartment block, has housed the likes of Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor and Frank Sinatra. During the 1950's The Sunset Tower Hotel was as much a landmark than the Hollywood sign itself. During the 1980's it was saved from demolition and was turned into a luxury hotel and preserves many of the original art deco features. It boasts panoramic views of the city from it's stunning rooftop pool, terrace bar and cafe. If you have the cash to splash and want to enjoy some of Hollywoods legendary history, get your people to talk with their people and make a reservation.
