Fourth of July Inspired Fashion & Retail Illustrations

Since it’s fourth of July weekend, I thought I’d share one of my more patriotic National Advertising Campaigns created for The Container Store “Love Your Luggage, Go Organized!” This gallery features my fashion illustrations paired with photographed products. The prevailing theme of red white and blue in this this series of my illustrated travels features fashion, lifestyle and destination illustrations. Here’s but  just a few of the advertising layouts that were published in web, direct mail, in-store standees, pop displays, billboards as well as full page editorial ads in all major newspapers nation-wide.

Designing with spring blooms helps an illustrator find inspiration

Finding inspiration a in every bloom is just the ticket to keep this illustrator refreshed and positive as  a late spring continues to dig in her heals here in Minneapolis. My passion for floral design and floral styling shots is part & parcel to my creative vibe as a fashion & lifestyle illustrator ( from the studio of pepper tharp)IMG_3517IMAG5019IMAG4991PArisFAshionWeek180X

Artful Living Magazine features Pepper Tharp’s Fashion & Lifestyle Illustrations

I was thrilled to create the fashion illustrations for Artful Living’s Spring Issue. If you weren’t able to run around Manhattan in search of New York Fashion Week’s many exciting runway shows–I’ve illustrated some of the fun for you here!

A Spring Time Goddess Emerges…

SpringCrownFlatlay300
Listen closely …. to the warmth whispering on the winds of a bleak winter month.  Lake ice turns deepest Prussian Blue, reflecting  no light in the last few days before becoming mercurial water. What has emerged from my paper and paints, but a woodland spring  goddess offering the hopefulness of Spring.
This piece was inspired by my daughter Matisse Merriam, who’s inner beauty and other knowledge is indeed my ‘crown of flowers’.

Goldfine Jewelry Launches TrueXGold

The launch party introducing the new spring line at Goldfine Jewelry at their Minneapolis loft showroom last Friday night was magical. There’s little doubt that this collaboration with fashion blogger Chelsea #truelane in creation of this elegant collection  TrueXGold is absolutely sublime in every way. Bravo, Sara Goldfine and Matisse Merriam, you are power duo of beauty and brains and I adore being a part of your dream team!

 

Paris Fashion Week 2016

While the excitement of Paris Fashion Week drags into it’s 4th week –it’s high time I take you on an illustrated adventure to a street scene that compares to none!

Illustrating New York Fashion Week

For you, it could have been bracing for near-Arctic days of traversing Manhattan for shows. For me, bundled with paint and pens it was capturing street-style, runway, after parties and stylish attendees for an illustrated adventure for a most tony magazine. Join me for a sneak peek at NYFW 2016 while we hang out at Fivestory NY, the Polo Club, Monique Lhuillier Runway, Marc Jacobs, Goldfine Jewelry and more..

A Much Deserved Breath of Spring!

Some new work from the studio.  Since I produce my images one year ahead of each fashion season–it’s nice to have a breath of spring air whilst working through the dark winter months in the Northern Latitudes #teamnorth. Although some snowflakes are still drifting down at least I can take off my gloves do ‘dumb’ things on my *smartphone!
