Illustration 2: Santa's Helper - Pinky

Hi All,

So after doing my fabulous illustration of Nicole aka black girl Santa, I thought I wonder what her helpers / girls would look like - so I introduce to you 'Pinky'!, one of the many girls in Nicole's team that helps her to sort through all the shoe presents and keep everything fabulous. Pinky is a boss in her own right and loves to dance to Dancehall looool YASSSS goodas fi dem! :)

Illustration: Santa Baby - Shara Style

Hi All,

I honestly cannot believe its December and nearly Christmas already! I literally do not know where the time has gone, it's come around again so quickly. Today whilst doing some design work in my trustee onesie and sipping on peppermint tea I thought to myself, I wonder what Santa would look like with an afro lol (yep - real thoughts of a lady in her mid twenties).

I've never believed in Santa even when I was little, but I thought even though Santa is a figment of my imagination, I would like to see an image portrayed that I could at least relate to, so I drew my own.  Ladies & Gents I introduce this illustration called 'Santa Baby', her name is Nicole, and if she were real she would spread her fabulous style and confidence to women every where and deliver us shoes from Zara, Aldo and Christian Louboutin.

I suppose what I'm trying to say is that representation is so important, and if you don't see yourself represented in something, do your best to be the change you would like to see,no matter how small.

So from now on in my mind - Santa will be a fabulous black girl with a fro - YASSS!! :) :)

Craig David X - factor Performance! - Being Stylist Assistant to Celeb Stylist Alexis Knox!

Hi All!

My goodness it's been a long time since I've updated this beloved blog, BUT I promise I have a good explanation for it - no really. I Shara Johnson have spent the past couple of months being a stylist assistant to Celebrity Stylist Alexis Knox - POW!

 I must say I am completely loving the experience and have learnt so much in such a short space of time, from doing every day tasks such as pickups, returns and logging in samples, to assisting on the set of Craig David Music videos, going to press appointments, and more recently getting to assist backstage at X - Factor for the Craig David performance of his new single 'Change My Love'

X Factor Stage - Movie Week

Going to X Factor was particularly exciting for me because I was finally getting to experience first hand how one of the biggest entertainment shows are produced, and how much needs to be taken into consideration when styling an outfit for TV, such as: sitting through sound check to see how the outfit will looking against the lighting, or choosing the right print or the right style of shoe for TV.

Me and Celeb Stylist Alexis Knox

Backstage as you can imagine was a good kind of hectic and an excited atmosphere all round. There were people with ring lights, microphones, photographers, people being interviewed and getting glammed up all in preparation for count down to showtime.

Sound Check

All in all it was a great evening, its not every day you get to go to X factor let alone go back stage. I am a true believer in that great things will happen when preparation meets opportunity, and I am certainly grabbing all the opportunities coming my way with both hands and giving it my best.

Until next time guys I shall see you soon with another update on what I've been doing - mwahh xx :)
