Fiona’s Findings: A fashion illustration comic

More Info
By Monday, Apr 21 The Vibe

Fiona’s Findings is a fashion illustration comic. Much in the same way sports and politics are depicted with drawings in the paper, here I write and draw about style. This idea started with my love to sketch fashion illustrations and my background in journalism. But the idea grew when my grandmother caught wind that I was considering selling one- of- a- kind garments she gave to me. She chose to reply through a Facebook status, only visible to her sixty or so Facebook friends, but which still aroused a multitude of comments/concerns asking, “What jacket????!!!!!!”

“Dear Fiona: The jacket is leather; 15 or more years old… same with shoes. I still have more shoes from that period…I hope you don’t sell jacket. It cannot be replaced. It was way ahead of its time. Love love love Granny.”

I love fashion, and take it seriously, however this episode readily fueled a comic about style, design and the reactions fashion inspires in both others and myself. I hope you find a bit of humor and maybe even some enlightenment in these expositions and that Fiona’s Findings is received for what it is; a small love letter to style which chronicles the good, bad and everything in between that catches my ear or eye sartorially.

Sneak peak: The legacy of W.E.B. Du Bois at center stage

Friday, Feb 23 - More than 35 singers and dancers rehearsed a performance piece choreographed to the song “We are Here” by Alicia Keys, the oft-repeated refrain of which is a fitting tribute to the nature of Du Bois’ work: “We are here. We are all here for all of us. That’s why we are here.”
