Artful Living

brand new oldie

This illustration was done for J.McLaughlin, exclusively for Dillard’s and every time I look at it, there is something that makes me want to rush out and shop for something new. As a child, I loved riding my bike to a wonderful shop “Bycks” located in St.Matthews in Louisville. I would look at all the pretties. I would feel the fabrics, look at the way things were made and dream of being all grown up and having lots of money to shop for something new. Truth be told, I really love to scout at thrift shops, find bargains and bring home an oldie and make it look brand new.

Are your brave enough to give a gift of old or does it have to be brand spankin new?
