a sneak peek at my next girl powered collab @ FIT!

On March 1st, I'll be joining forces with a super fab hair company at FIT for a girl powered event called WOW! Above is a sneak peek at the illustration that I created for the event. I'll be revealing the name of the hair company and my full illustration soon. 

Brought forth by FIT's Diversity Council, the WOW symposium brings together women from the beauty, arts, and fashion industries that will talk about where they started, where they are now, and where they are going in their careers. 
Sorry, but the event is only open to FIT students. 

More info to come! Stay tuned!

Photocopy Press reviews "Flippancies"

 Check it out! Photocopy Press reviews my illustrated zine, "Flippancies"

From the very cool cover art, to the pages printed to look like school notebook paper, the stitched binding and the marvelous stories themselves, I loved everything about this litzine. The subtitle for this zine is "four short stories about girls flipping their hair". It seems like a pretty odd starting point and one might wonder, how can someone write one story about girls who flip their hair, let alone a whole zine of stories? But Rosenbaum pulls it off, effortlessly writing stories about life as a girl in middle school or high school. Her characters are fresh and believable and you can clearly picture each glossy strand of flipped hair.
