The more time goes by, the more I love Erin O’Connor. I loved her before I met her, when I knew her only as the muse of David Downton, one of my favorite illustrators.

She’s one of those people that seem to come straight out of a novel. She talks to everyone in the same way, intelligent, serious, and incredibly funny all at the same time. She’s doesn’t buy into passing trends, just has unbelievable elegance. She was my favorite walk at the Gaultier show.

Afterwards, I see her pass by with a rose. I ask if I can take her picture and she right away takes her pose. She’s a true model, the kind you dream of for a painting.

I’d love it if, one day, I found my muse!
