Donald Drawbertson and Smashbox launch a travelling art project for Miami Basel
Kiss me Cadillac
Instagram star and illustrator Donald Robertson (aka @donalddrawbertson) is going to attend Miami's Art Basel next week, and he's going to arrive in style.
In a plan hatched at a dinner in LA with the Smashbox team recently, a beauty brand he has teamed up with in the past, he had the idea to fill up the trunk of a 1974 Cadillac El Dorado covered in bright and bold, 'Bing'-coloured pout, plus a "trunk full of lipstick" and drive it across the country from the beauty brand's HQ to Tucson, Arizona; Marfa, Texas; Austin, Texas; New Orleans; and Gainesville, Florida, all en route to Miami.
Those who visit the car during its journey will receive a complimentary limited-edition Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick in Bing (cherry red) covered in the same print as the car.
For those who don't make it to the Cadillac in time, the lipstick can be purchased via one of just 48 tubes that are going up for sale on Spring for just 48 hours on Saturday, before it becomes available for all on the Smashbox website from December 1.
