THE MRC CAULFIELD RACING CARNIVAL

I was recently asked to draw live fashion sketches at three Caulfield Spring racing carnival events - Guineas Day, Blue Sapphire Stakes Day and the Caulfield Cup. Catalina Sounds sponsored the event in the David Jones Fashion Stable. Myself and 3 other illustrators quickly sketched people's outfit of the day as a little memento for them to take home. It was hugely successful with the crowds. I drew some amazing outfits over the 3 days both on paper and digitally on the iPad Pro using Procreate app. Thank you Apple Australia and Matt from Pro Create for this welcome addition. One special feature of this app is the instant replay, a step by step of how each drawing was created on the iPad, which people loved.

It was a busy, fun filled few days so I will leave you with a few of my fave sketches. Many thanks to the Melbourne Racing Club and Catalina Sounds for having me and for Jacky Winter for making it happen.

Look out for me at Flemington at The Melbourne Cup and Oaks Day!
