R. Nichols in Vanity Fair

My Grandfather (Grandboy) had a house in Palm Springs, so growing up we spent winter vacations romping in the pool surrounded by hummingbird feeders and lizards. It’s always been a special place to me – and even still today – something about those mountains in the sunset and the desert air is magical.

So you can imagine how thrilled I was to be approached to illustrate the marketing campaign for the shops at El Paseo (the Rodeo Drive of Palm Desert, just down the road from Palm Springs). I did 6 different images for them, ranging from poolside glamour to cocktail parties to shopping and dining. It was a perfect fit.

If you live out West, keep your eyes peeled for ads. There is one in the March Issue of Vanity Fair right now, and one coming up in Los Angeles Magazine (April issue). Plus loads of other places…..

See you at the pool!
