WE CUSTOMIZE ALL HAIR COLORS AND SKIN TONES



PHONE CASES: WWW.CASETIFY/MELSYS


Melsy's Illustrations creates feminine and dainty hand-drawn fashion illustrations! Each piece of art is detail oriented and colored in with Copic Markers and/or high-end watercolors. Touches of glitter and other materials (such as sequins, pearls, Swarovski crystals, glitter, etc.) may also be added for perfect touches of detail. Melsy's artistic style focuses primarily on the hair and outfits of her illustrations. Rarely showing the face, her illustrations create a special bond between the consumer and her artwork. Because Melsy doesn't show the face of her illustrations they can be ANYONE, your best friend, sister, mom, co-worker, etc! These are perfect gifts for holidays, weddings, birthdays, expecting mommys, you name it!

About MelsysIllustrations

On Etsy since 2013

A self-taught artist who chose to leave my 9-5 job and start my own fashion illustrating business!

This is going to be a little lengthy… here’s my story in a nutshell!
Since I was a little girl I’ve always had a passion for art. I remember being 5 and having a crayon in my hand at all times ( I always drew suns and rainbows). My love for art transitioned over to the love for makeup in high school and college. I put down the pencil and picked up a makeup brush….. I started experimenting with art on the face instead of paper.

I realized how much I loved art/illustrations when one of my best friends (@odettemariewakim on instagram) gave me a fahion illustration for my birthday in the summer of 2013. I went the the fashion illustrator's website and wanted ALL of her designs! At the time I couldn't afford to buy all of her designs so I thought "Why don't I just try to create my own?!" I moved back home from Boston, was bored one night, and really needed to pick up a hobby, so I started experimenting with fashion illustrating and decided to give it a go!

Everyday, since discovering my new-found passion for art, I would go to my 9-5 job come straight home and just completely zone out in the world of illustrating. I started posting my rough sketches on Facebook and Instagram, before I knew it was gaining so much recognition on social media that I decided to research local craft fairs to sell my illustrations. I applied to SOWA in Boston.. I literally had NO idea what I was doing at first! I remember the first day wasn't too great.. but I kept at it. A few weeks later I started my Etsy shop which then lead to the birth of my company, Melsy's Illustrations!

Since then my clients have included:
Bloomingdales
GRAPHIQUE DE FRANCE
TJX Companies Inc. (TJ Maxx, Home Goods, Marshalls)
Hallmark
Reebok
HANLEY NYC


FEATURED IN:
FORBES
ENTREPRENUER
INSTYLE
PIX 11
BRIDAL GUIDE MAGAZINE
BRIDES MAGAZINE
THE HUFFINGTON POST
HER CAMPUS
THE EAGLE TRIBUNE
THE BOSTON GLOBE
SOWA SPOTLIGHT

POP UP BOOTHS:
BRYANT PARK HOLIDAY SHOPS
COLUMBUS CIRCLE HOLIDAY SHOPS
SOWA AND NEW ENGLAND OPEN MARKETS
CHELSEA MARKET


My career REALLY launched this year, when I decided to make the big move to NYC! I became a vendor at Bryant Park Holiday Shops from October-January. It was the most UNREAL experience of MY LIFE! I met so many people from ALL over the world.. It's so crazy to think my illustrations have a home in Italy, London, Thailand, Switzerland, Germany, Japan, China, etc! (That's another story that I will discuss more in a BOOK hopefully one day!)

My mom was extremely supportive, She’s my inspiration and the one who gave me the name Melsy (she use to call me that when I was little). I get my creative style from her… she is the classiest woman I know and has a flair for fashion and home decor. She’s the reason I am who I am today! MY dad on the other hand didn’t take it too well when I left my job. He said: “Jamel, that’s what 5 year olds do!” It took him a while to warm up to the idea, but now he wants my job :) So, no matter what anyone says I encourage you ALL to take a leap of faith and follow your dreams. You are the only one that can make yourself happy!
