The New Yorker Cover.jpg
I like to loiter around the city looking for interesting things. I have tried to do a painting a day since I moved here from Oregon, a year and a half ago. Bookstores are really good places for inspiration–you see people interacting with the books they have an affinity for, you see how people consume the culture. Sometimes someone will be dressed in a similar way to things he or she is looking at. I love these sort of poetic fun moments.”

Gayle Kabaker: Another The New Yorker Cover!

"Falling Beauty"

“I once pulled up to the toll booth on the Golden Gate Bridge in thousand-dollar leather pants and not enough money for the toll,” Gayle Kabaker says, recounting how her love of style sometimes overshadows life’s practicalities. Kabaker, a fashion illustrator and the artist behind the cover for the Style Issue, has since left city life and is now settled into what she calls “the boonies of Western Massachusetts,” but her interest in fashion remains constant. “When I was a kid, my babysitter went on to illustrate the Style section of the Washington Post. That’s when I realized what I wanted to be.”

"The library of lost things" Book Cover by Red Nose Studio


"Welcome to the Library of Lost Things, where the shelves are stuffed with books that have fallen through the cracks—from volumes of lovelorn teenage poetry to famous works of literature long destroyed or lost. They’re all here, pulled from history and watched over by the Librarian, curated by the Collectors, nibbled on by the rats. Filed away, never to be read. At least, until Thomas, the boy with the secret, comes to the Library."

'The Library of Lost Things' by Matthew Bright, illustrated by Red Nose Studio.

WAG Magazine featuring Bella Pilar

Anyone with a fashionista in her life has likely purchased a Bella Pilar card in a local Papyrus.

From Rye to Greenwich, White Plains to Westport, the upscale card and gift boutiques prominently feature her fashionable work.

While greeting cards have been the mainstay of her association with the company, today Papyrus also features Pilar’s work on everything from tote bags to cosmetic cases, gift wrap to notebooks.

Sometimes that work includes playful animals such as puppies or birds, but most often, it’s her signature “girls” taking center stage in scenes celebrating milestones, holidays, friendship or just a great pair of shoes. 

All is decidedly feminine, charmingly whimsical — and wholly recognizable.
