Official Omaha Fashion Week Runway Illustrator

 

My new gig as Omaha Fashion Week’s official runway illustrator has been announced! Really excited about this opportunity to be involved with fashion week in a whole new way.

So far, I have already illustrated one look from each designer that will be showing at fashion week next week. And they look AWESOME.  I can’t show them to you yet because I don’t want to spoil the debuts of the designers’ clothing collections, but the illustrations turned out real, real good. (Also, I’ve seen the collections that will be shown at OFW and they also turned out real, real good!)  Printed cards of these hush-hush illustrations will be available for purchase at Omaha Fashion Week. I will be selling original artwork at a table at the event each night too so come say hi and look at my AHHHHHHT.

I’m planning on doing some on-site sketching. If you are pre-partying at the tent, I’ll be bouncing back and forth from my table to the platform models. LIVE MODELS! FASHION! ART!

 

 

Right now, I am taking orders for original illustrations straight from the Omaha Fashion Week runway.  If you are a designer, model, relative/friend/fan of a designer, or a local fashion and art lover, visit my shop to see the different illustration packages I have available. You can order just one piece of art or commission me to draw an entire collection!

Can you imagine the look on a designer’s face if an illustration from their own runway show was a congratulatory gift for them? Art is SUCH a good gift.  And what would be a better way to remember this red carpet event? Treat yo’self!

I am currently taking orders for illustrations for the upcoming Omaha Fashion Week’s fall 2015 shows. Please visit the OFW Illustration section in my shop to pre-order an original illustration and to see the illustration package options:

Surrounding myself with Art

I love having a house because having a house means I have walls!  And having walls means I can hang art!  Lots and lots of art!  My partner and I have some art hung up already, but not nearly enough.  We’ll have to have another art hanging spree this spring.

I think all the artwork that I have in my house really inspiring, so I thought it’d be fun to share them here piece by piece.

My BFF, Timm McKenny, gave me some paintings for my living room.  Here’s one of them:

Painting by Timm McKenny

It’s a decent sized painting  (2.5 x 4′ ish) and it was created with a loose painting style, which I love partly because it looks like it was painted with ease and partly because I rarely can paint this way.  The look of this piece feels casual and focused at the same time, sort of like Timm himself.  It’s nice having his work in my living room because he lives far away and I miss him.  If I can’t see Timm, at least I get to see his art!

Art makes me happy. And sleepy, apparently.

He gave me another painting that’s also in my living room. That one is a portrait and I ADORE it.  I’ll share that one later.

New Website!

I moved my blog from audiohelkuik.com over to here (here, meaning where you are RIGHT NOW) at audiohelkuikblog.wordpress.com so I could turn audiohelkuik.com into a showcase of my creative work.  It includes my past clothing collections and a bit of the theater costume work that I’ve done.  I’ve been working on it real hard. Here are some screenshots from the homepage.  Feel free to explore the site & see what there is to see:

I’m in love with that header image above.  It’s just awesome.

Painting Studio Planking

With my new in-house photo setup next to my painting studio, there’s been an invasion of dressforms amongst my canvases.
