Wrap Magazine Issue 8
20 August 2013

WRAP Magazine / Issue 8

Polly and Chris from the ever excellent WRAP Magazine let me illustrate the Big Question section of the ” New Horizons” issue. It asks a range of illustrators and creatives to weigh in on the progression of work vs. distinctive style debate. The whole issue is amazing as usual. I geeked out especially over Olimpia Zagnoli’s interview and Lizzie Stewart talking about borderline competitive cooking. You can buy Issue 8 here.

New Studio!

Ch-ch-ch-changes… Sadly, my old studio which was on the creek in Deptford is being demolished to build luxury flats ( in London? Unheard of). So we’ve had to pack up and move but now we work from a container in the courtyard of an old police station which is pretty great so far. If you ever want to come by and say hi or see some original holding cells from 100 years ago, come by, we’re right next to New Cross station!

Dutch Wedding Photo Shoot

A while back Katherine Long from Little Cat Design Co. asked to use one of my patterns in a photoshoot she was styling. It was really nice seeing my work applied in this way, it’s a lovely series of photos too. All image credits go to Scott Michael Frazier. The shoot was also featured on 100Layer cake, the mother of all wedding blogs so if you’d like to see some of the images you can see them here.

Creative Mornings London

I went along to the Food themed Creative Mornings event in London and it was pretty great seeing my illustrations on the projector screens. Plus: free coffee and fruit = awesome! ( Disclaimer: this is obvs. photoshopped in case you’re wondering, it’s friggin’ impossible to take a good photo of a projected image.)

English Home Magazine Feature
2 August 2013

English Home Magazine

My Fable plates are included in the August Issue’s Scandinavian Style Feature. The whole magazine made me want to move to the country and hang out in some pastel kitchens with industrial lights stat. There are not enough fresh flowers in my life.

Not For Rental Project Illustration
10 July 2013

La Di Da

Not For Rental is a movie inspired charity exhibition hosted at The Church of London’s 71a venue. 200 artists were asked to illustrate or customise a VHS tape with a scene or character from a movie without spelling out the title so the visitors could guess. Perhaps the sartorial choices of my character give her away, otherwise the title of this post should! If you can’t guess, head over to this Guardian feature for the reveal, as they’ve kindly included me in their round–up gallery. You can find out more about the exhibition and the contributors on the site and watch a nicely shot video of the opening night here. Go check it out of you get a chance, it’s got quite the cast and it’s on until Saturday the 12th of July!
