Hello Dolly, Hello Cheeky Broad, Hello Magical Being: Bette Midler

I already had Bette Midler, cabaret showgirl, actress turned philanthropist on my list of portraits of Magical People, given my admiration for her work restoring green to NYC with her New York Restoration Project. She was in my “environmentalist category.” OK, clearly not her last act. Just as I was about to draw Bette, suddenly her return to Broadway was announced. Bette Midler in the title role of Dolly Levi, in Hello Dolly!, the classic American musical about a socialite-turned-matchmaker. And chosen as a muse for Marc Jacobs SS2016 campaign the next week based on the 70's? Perfect! Seriously fun...

Wave hello to the futurists! Peeking and pecking at new worlds sprouting up this past spring, we happily feather-rubbed with the masses, descending upon all the future-peeping creatives as they unfurled their feathers at showy events. First, cameras and tweets preened on about dresses or lack thereof flaunted on the red carpets of all the award shows, and next, futurist muses flashed their goods at major art and design fairs like ICFF, Frieze, and Salone. Then, suddenly the show tables, vignettes, and homes of interior designers at charity events like DIFFA, Design on a Dime, and Kips Bay were lusted...


This planet is full of fascinating magical people, places, and things that make me high.
They make me laugh.
They make me cry.
They make me make art.
O JOY!
If I can bring that *fascination | laugh | cry* high to anyone, well, that makes me high.
Thank you for visiting, let me know if I got you high today.
