Washington post!

Thank you Katherine Salant and The Washington Post for this wonderful shout out!

“For a singularly bold statement, Rhode Island School of Design professor Oren Sherman’s digitally printed wallpaper is also intended as a feature wall, or, as he put it, “to be the star of the show.” The patterns are 52 inches wide and feature large areas of bold color in organic, floral shapes; the patterns can also be custom-colored. Sherman’s collection will be available in June.”

George Stavrinos

Today I am paying tribute to the great artist and fashion illustrator George Stavrinos. His work has been on my mind lately. He was at RISD just before my time. In my early days as an illustrator I would wait for the NY Times every Sunday to see his amazing full page artwork for Bergdorf Goodman. He brought back a drawing style from the golden age of illustration and a new narrative into fashion illustration. The look was exactly right for the mood of the late 1970′s  return to glamour. He left us too young but his beautiful work remains.
