First for Women magazine features my hair and beauty illustrations

I graduated from the Art Institute in Chicago where I studied fashion and beauty illustration. My work has been featured in an array of magazines – VOGUE, In Style, Glamour, and more. However, with the birth of the internet the market for illustrations took a dive – magazines went under, publishing went online, and a lot of illustration work just vanished. Art directors could now buy “stock art “ for a fraction of what we were getting paid. So I had to adapt, and eventually I came up with another outlet for my skills: The Marrero Collection. But in the …

Phantom Of The Opera I The Beatboxed Cover (Video)

I haven’t posted anything with music in such a long time, but a friend of mine suggested that I watch this video and I must say my mind was blown! If you thought you’d heard Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Phantom of the Opera covered in every way possible, then think again…   It’s always great to see a fresh take on something as iconic as The Phantom of the Opera. Just gorgeous, a stunning work of art that has been done in many ways and always carries some hint of emotional affect that you’d have to be heartless to miss..

Heidi Klum as Jessica Rabbit 4 Halloween (her transformation video)

Heidi-Klum-Jessica-Rabbit

As a fashion illustrator, Jessica Rabbit was/is a huge inspiration on my work. Her proportions and the “Bob Mackie-Like” gown on the animated diva were sensational. As a Fashion designer, Project Runway is another big influence, to this day one of my favorite shows. So magic happens when you marry the two, Heidi Klum (wearing a dress made by Project Runway’s Christian Siriano) & the iconic Jessica Rabbit. Hands down and amazing, incredible transformation. I nominate Klum “Drag Race Royalty” for her Lip-Syncing. What do you think of the transformation?
