Starting New Things

I’ve been in the studio quite a bit as of late.  Here is why…

Today I launch a new blog, not instead, but in addition to this one. www.dalynart.com

I have long loved the advertising illustration of times past.  When I have looked back at Leyendecker or others of that time I am amazed that the work, meant as a modern advertisement, could still look so appealing; not dated. 

Of course most don’t wear straw boater hats today but after viewing these ads, one might want to.  There are of course great ads out today, but these old ones were done with a brush.

So are mine.

It feels appropriate to kick it off with the blog that started the menswear or fashion blogging craze that exists today, Scott Schuman of the Sartorialist.

As I’ve spoken with other bloggers, successful ones, there was a common theme; they saw the sartorialist, loved it, and were inspired to do something of their own.

I make no claims to being a Leyendecker, Rockwell, or Eakins, but I will be posting illustrations of blogs, bloggers, brands, or others, that I think deserve a hand painted ode to when things had style and beauty.

Enjoy… and tell a friend.
