RIGHT MEOW: DONALD "DRAWBERTSON" ROBERTSON
If you are not following him already, you must follow @DonaldDrawbertson on Instagram. The first time I discovered Donald Robertson, aka “Drawbertson”, his colorful and cheeky illustrations immediately caught my eye. I soon became fascinated at how Drawbertson turns the most common everyday item, such as a Whole Foods bag or a bottle of laundry detergent, into art. After following him for a couple days I decided to do a little research. I discovered that this illustrator is head of creative development at Bobbi Brown Cosmetics and one of the founders of M.A.C. cosmetics. He is an artist/doodler/eccentric pop art painter and duct-tape artist extraordinaire. He updates his Instagram multiple times daily for over 97,000 followers.
What turned me from a regular fan to Drawberson-obsessed is his partnership with the ASPCA. In conjunction with the Young Friends event, One Kings Lane is featuring special Drawberstson-designed prints and items with 100 percent of the proceeds directly benefitting the ASPCA. It doesn’t get better than this, folks! Check out the sale here.

UPDATE: I got to meet Donald at Story in NYC. He was there for an evening drawing portraits for shoppers. It was quite the event. I stood in line for a little over two hours to meet Donald and get my portrait. It was worth the wait. He was so nice and I LOVE my little drawing.
