I've been reading Sara Donaldson's Harper & Harley blog for a few years now and enjoying her chic stylish outfit posts & flawless beauty. I found Sara via fellow FELLT blogger Nicole Warne (Gary Pepper Vintage - who I illustrated for). It turns out my old workmate is friends with Sara - what a small world indeed. I discovered this when I was telling him about Nicole reaching the finalists for the Cosmopolitan Fun Fearless Female Awards as did Sara's blog Harper & Harley. I was inspired to draw Sara after seeing her latest beauty editorials - what artist can resist such a striking profile?!

You're reducing your wardrobe to black, white & grey, which is similar to my approach of illustrating (black & a splash of red), so what draws you to these 3 colours? (Chrissy: I myself never wear white, I love the clean crisp colour but can always hear my mum saying WHITE GET DIRTY! haha) I'm not too sure when it all happened, but colour in clothing has recently made me really anxious and I just can't do it. There are only a few exceptions to the rule, like khaki, denim, navy and camel, but to me they're also quite neutral as well. I love classic pieces that are in your wardrobe forever, and lets be honest, that pink leopard number isn't going to make the distance!

A huge thank you to Sara for being a mega babe and saying yes to being INKED!
