This one is for all the bookish BonLook Beauties out there! When I saw Priscilla from the YouTube channel thereadables wearing our very own La Marquise frames in tortoise, I just knew I had to get her on this blog.
When Veronica (our graphic designer) discovered Sunny Gu’s absolutely stunning illustrations on Pinterest, she spread the word and showed them to me. I instantly fell in love with her artwork and then had to share it with Melanie (co-founder of BonLook). Melanie was equally enamored by Sunny’s unique style and monumental talent and shared her website with Sophie (our other co-founder and Chief Designer). I think this is just what happens when you encounter her work. Her obvious talent is so striking and her illustrations are so beautiful that you just feel the need to share it with anyone that you think may appreciate it.
Sunny Gu has recently been featured in Dolce & Gabbana’s Swide Magazine and has done commissioned illustrations for some of the major names in the fashion industry. It is for this reason that we are thrilled that Sunny Gu agreed to be featured on our blog as one of the “Women We Love”! Although I would be happy to spill volumes of praise and share my thoughts on her supremely skillful art, Sunny’s take on things is quite a bit more interesting than mine! As such, here is my interview with her:
Q + A
I am excited to introduce a brand new feature where we’ll be interviewing an intelligent, inspirational and all-around impressive lady in order to share some of her talent and creative insight with all of you. Right now, we are hoping to be able to share someone amazing with you on a weekly basis. We also, however, really want to know who inspires you. If you know an incredible woman that you think we’d love and that others would love to hear about, please drop us a line at email@example.com and let us know a bit about her. We are always so thrilled to hear your thoughts and to be introduced to even more impressive women!
Early on in my history with BonLook, Melanie (one of our co-founders) introduced me to the artwork of Oana Befort. I was immediately impressed by her unique artistic style and her very blatant talent and creativity. I was so impressed by her work that when we decided to start the Women We Love feature, hers was the first name that popped into my mind. I figured that there would be no harm in asking if this ultra-talented artist would be willing to be featured on our humble blog. To my blissful surprise, Oana not only agreed to be interviewed but also sent me loads of beautiful artwork to share with you all as well.
