Join Us on Thursday March 17th 6:30-9:30PM for a Special Society of Illustrators Sketch Night and Meet the Legendary Alvaro as he facilitates a Fashion Sketch Night.

Alvaro is a world-renowned artist known for his celebrated illustrations of Celebrated Legends in Film, as well as his “Girls”, the Super models. A true New Yorker, raised in the South Bronx, his work affects a street-wise sensibility with a graphic sensibility that is visually stunning and unique.
Alvaro’s educational journey began at the high school of Art and Design and culminated in his earning a degree from the Fashion Institute of Technology, where he pursued his dream of meeting and eventually working for his Idol, Antonio Lopez.
His artwork evolved into a new direction combining his love of Hollywood Icons and Fashion by creating portraits of the Super models, Linda Evangelista, Christy Turtlington and Naomi Campbell, all of whom where drawn to Alvaro’s bright spirit and talent and became good friends.
Name a celebrity, model or figure in the limelight and chances are Alvaro has already captured that figure with style, concept, wit and beauty. Capture a bit of Alvaro’s magic as he styles and facilitates a special fashion sketch night.
