Fiona’s Findings: A fashion illustration comic

I hope you will receive Fiona's Findings for what it is: A small love letter to style which chronicles the good, bad and everything in between.

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.

REVIEW: Celtic Baroque band Makaris charms Mahaiwe crowd on St. Patrick’s Day presentation by Close Encounters with Music

They demonstrated their competence with musical forms that rely more on elegance than complexity to achieve their ends. And they succeeded in ways that some of their more "serious" works never could.

FILM REVIEW: ‘The Old Oak’ directed by Ken Loach

Loach has always believed (too sanguinely) in the power of the working class, but his recent work has been much less optimistic about the workers capacity to transform a recalcitrant social and political world.
