Year Three


Sometimes it’s hard to express how much My Closet in Sketches means to me without sounding redundant. There are so many tangible ways that this website has affected my life, but what’s more important to me – and what I find difficult to convey over the internets – is what it has done to my future, my past, my confidence, my soul, etc.

The creative center in me that burns with a desire to make something, all the time, is the same place that is stoked with joy every time a reader shares how I have inspired them. My goal is that My Closet in Sketches will always remain a place of imaginative freedom, of gettin’ down and dirty and doin’ shit just because something inside compelled me there.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for being here.

Take an abridged tour through these memorable outfits from the last three years:

Year Two

This blogiversary is an amazing way to track my drawing progress

Whether you viewed ¬†those when I first published them or you are new to the site, I want to reiterate a) how grateful I am for your visit, b) isn’t it crazy how much you can improve at something if you put your mind to it? and c) this website gave me the gift of purpose, and without that I can’t imagine what my life would be today. I’m thankful that I can share something so meaningful to me with you.

PS: I missed my official blogiversary (April 28th) because I was busy yelling the loudest at my brother’s graduation… But better late than never, right?
