WATERCOLOUR SKETCH // 2.6.16

Thanks for sticking around, lovely followers! Hoping to be bringing more regular illustration-y goodness to you over the next few months! Anyway, this week’s sketch is of the fabulous Caroline De Maigret, who I knew of from her book How to be Parisian, and the fact that she epitomises Parisian Chic. But I fell in love…

DESIGN PROJECT 3.1

Yep, nerd me has set myself another design project. This one has a bit of a 70’s influence, with quite feminine colours, prints and details, but in oversized menswear shapes. Pretty, but not too pretty, you know? Personally, I’m feeling like I want to break out of the endless androgynous/black all the time cycle, and…

WATERCOLOUR SKETCH 16.3.16

  My latest watercolour sketch is of Jessica Sikosek photographed by the amazing, lovely, super talented Akila Berjaoui. I have a special soft spot for Akila, not only because she’s such a good photographer, but also because she saved the day at the very last minute and photographed my wedding after the my original photographer had…

AMERICAN // BEAUTY

  This week’s sketch is an ode to my super talented friend Kisha C Jones – she is an uber amazing stylist, and this is from a beauty shoot she styled for Grazia Germany – American Beauty. She regularly styles amazing shoots for Schon magazine which are just stunning, among many others. Her eclectic taste always shines…

RADIO SILENCE

Dear Lovely Followers, Presuming you are still following – my sincere apologies for the prolonged break in between posts! Things have been manic over here! In between my actual job (how dare a job get in the way?!), being ill.. then ill again, and breaking my general state of hermitude to catch up with friends…

BODY SERIES #1

Damn, holidays (and Summer) are both over already! Trying to hold on to them (and my vague resemblance of a tan), I thought I’d draw some nice Summery sketches. First one is of the stunning Phoebe Tonkin photographed by Alexandra Spencer (who is equally stunning and talented!) This is the first in a series I’ve…

WELLBEING // 22.7.16

Lovely followers (and occasional lurkers), I am very sorry it’s been so long in between posts! This week’s sketch took longer than usual – drawing hair like this is surprisingly time consuming! It’s inspired by a shot of the beautiful Karen Elson by Horst Diekgerdes for Another Magazine S/S 2004. Anyway, part of the reason why…

HANNELI – VERSION 2

I mentioned earlier in the week that I decided to redraw the sketch I had done of Hanneli Mustaparta (I hope you like these sketches Hanneli, although you can see I’ve totally changed your hair… but hey, you look cute with bangs! Otherwise, sorry for the sketch spam…!), as I felt like my usual rendering…

INSPIRATION #16 – WINDOWS

As seen at Tate Britain. Incidentally, there are some great exhibitions at Tate Britain at the moment and they’re about to finish (especially McQueen Working Progress which closes next week). If you’re in London, you should definitely go – Tate Britain is one of the most underrated galleries I think. Sometimes I think that’s not such…

LINDSEY WIXSON IN DOCUMENT JOURNAL

This week it’s a pantone and marker sketch of the gorgeous Lindsey Wixson in Document Journal (photographed by Paul Wetherell and wearing incredible Jeremy Scott by Linda Farrow sunglasses). Sketching has slowed down a bit the last few weeks – I joined the gym (much to Husband’s joy) and have been trying to (finally) finish…

RECOLLECTION

So my lovely little blog is almost 1 year old! I traditionally haven’t written much on here, as I wanted to let the images speak for themselves. As time has gone on, I increasingly felt the need to add more and more ‘me’ on here. It’s hard though – I never quite know what to…

HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

Lots and lots of well wishes to all my lovely followers! I’ll be spending my (desperately needed!) Christmas break drawing and watching lots of terrible movies. I usually also spend this time of year trawling through Spotify and various music blogs in an attempt to catch up with all the music I haven’t had time…

PARIS SKIES

A few left over pics I hadn’t got around to posting yet from my weekend in Paris. We were lucky with the light on our last day there, and was able to get some lovely high contrast pics. It was a nice consolation for only being able to get into one museum for the whole…

THE 60’S

I really, REALLY love the 60’s – I think if I could choose any time to time travel to, it would be London in the 60’s. I can’t say exactly what it is that I find so fascinating, perhaps it was a past life or something. Of course, working in fashion, I especially love the clothes…
