Audrey summer '16

Here are some pictures from June that I've been meaning to share. Best friend got her camera up and running again, so we went to her parents' house and had a photoshoot. Enjoy!

when I kissed you girl I knew how sweet a kiss could be, like the summer sunshine pour your sweetness over me

Okay sooo they've been doing a reboot of Archie Comics, first it was Afterlife with Archie, then I think the guy who did that got all the rights or whatever to do new Archies, now they're releasing new Betty & Veronica cartoons - and I am over the moon about it. I have been obsessed with B&V since... forever. I have read Archie comics my whole life and I lived for Betty, Veronica, Sabrina, Josie & the Pussycats, and even Cheryl Blossom! We used to have an art room with a light table and I would sit and trace different outfits worn by the various ladies. I had pages and pages of them, and it wasn't until I was in my first year of fashion design at college that I realized all those tracings actually came in handy.

They released a ton of various covers for the first issue, so I'm sharing all of my favourites because the artwork is so awesome!

Cover art by: Mahmud Asrar
Cover art by: Audrey Mok - Love Ronnie's pink leather jacket!

Cover art by: Veronica Fish - Love the colours in the sky, and the stickers on the bike!

Cover art by: Tom Bancroft - Betty's outfit is so cute!
Cover art by: Chrissie Zulo - This cover is amazing! I want it as a print for my living room wall
Cover art by: Tula Lotay - I love how different this cover is, old romance novel style and beautifully drawn from the finger waves to the milkshake!
Cover art by: Jenn St. Onge - Ronnie WOULD be the selfie queen. Love how curvy the girls are here!
Cover art by: Alitha Martinez, Kelly Fitzpatrick - Loving the outfits again! Veronica's whole outfit plus Betty's wristband are straight outta American Apparel
Cover art by: Colleen Coover - I love this cover so much! It reminds me of the episode of The O.C. where they drive to Mexico. Ronnie's sunglasses are so cute
Cover art by: Cliff Chiang - This is almost my favourite cover. Mostly because... Frappuccino cup!!! Plus there's just a nice symmetry to it
Cover art by: Francesco Francavilla - Second fave cover! Our girls on a playing card - two queens
Cover art by: Genevieve F.T. - My favourite cover! Love the style the girls are illustrated in, the softness and the fullness of everything. Betty's bun is way too cute
Cover art by: Adam Hughes - This is the original/main cover for the first issue, by the main guy himself!


goodbye Summer 2015

Audrey's first Summer is coming to a close, so here are some pictures from July that I haven't officially shared yet. Our friend Melanie has ventured into the photography business, so we hung out and she snapped some fabulously colourful pics of Audrey (and Mel's son Charlie). The floral backdrop was made by Mel herself just for this shoot! Thanks Mel for being so good to us!
