_ RICHARD HAINES
Illustrator Richard Haines settled in a space of his own, sketching sensitive renderings of selected subjects from 36 Hours and strangers from instagram whom he invited to the space.
Richard Haines wildly popular blog, "What I Saw Today," documents the clothes and attitudes of New York's every day trendsetters and fashion icons of all ages. It is not uncommon to see Haines seated front row at fashion week's most desirable shows busily sketching images for magazines and blogs who hire him to record the nuances that cannot be captured on film. His sensitive renderings of his subjects, whether they are men on the street, friends or fashion models uncover a deeply sentimental treatment. It is his fascination with the people behind the styles that informs his every stroke, propelling his work beyond mere sketches into the world where art and fashion intersect.
Most recently, he had a solo exhibition of his work “A Room of One’s own”, which opened in the Fall of 2015 at Daniel Cooney Fine Art
Richard has also covered the men’s shows for NY Times T Magazine and has documented menswear trends for a weekly column for the Sunday Times London. Among his clients are Prada, J.Crew, Pennyblack, Il Palacio del Hierro, Calvin Klein, Coach, Georg Jensen, Bobbi Brown, Unionmade Goods, Barneys, Mr. Porter Grazia, The New York Times Style Magazine, Man of the World, GQ and GQ Italy.
