Went to the Kingston Illustration Degree show last week in old street and her work was my absolute favourite. Her drawing style is absolutely gorgeous, I wish I could have told her how wicked it was ...
Had a little trawl through her blog and I came across this amazing picture of Geoff, way too good (I like his trousers best) hahaha
If you don't know what they do they run a super brilliant art+design website, make a gorgeous magazine that comes out three times a year, as well as doing loads of cool projects and consulting at the side, the latest being this project with asos.
Go show some love, by checking out their epic website right here.
The really cool thing about the GIRLS+ZINES project I'm working on at the moment is that I get to snoop at loads of really rad zines. Over the next couple of months there will probably be a lot of posts like this and this shall be the first one!
Say hello to "bumzine"!
"Bumzine stemmed from a desire i had last year to sit on the photocopier when I was photocopying things at the college where I studied. Well, I started scanning my bum, and my friends thought it would be funny to distribute the photos in a zine" says the anonymous creator of this gem.
Utterly brilliant, but if you want a copy you better move quickly as it is only an edition of 25.
We're so gangsta , we only eat chocolate if it's in the shape of a knife in my house - I know right!
Some badass stickers, tattoos and postcards from the isle of wight, a couple of weeks ago ...
The Pemberton twins kindly invited me to stay in a 1950's airstream caravan, which was super cool and the weather was gorgeous (not like now). It was with Vintage Vacations, they are wicked ... check them out here http://www.vintagevacations.co.uk/
Went to the V+A illustration awards on Monday with the family. The work that stood out to me the most was by Hannah Simpson (a 2nd year Kingston illustration student). Here etchings of plague, cholera and anthrax bacteria are just gorgeous (see above) also Amelia G told me that she did some illustrations for her Compendium of Fashion Illustration which I bet are hella good too.
Also Rose Blake has started a sick new project (maybe not that new ...). The website allows you to hear what different artists/designers/photographers listen to in their studios (two new artists are uploaded each week). While you're listening you can read why they like the tracks, bit like desert island disks really. Go listen by clicking here!
Went to this sale, this afternoon. Not meant to be spending lots of money at the moment but I made an exception for this. Would say that I managed to sort out my summer wardrobe with a ten quid bag .. worth going to, if you don't mind elbowing slow people out of the way!
Funny pictures explaining chemicals from earlier this week at the Natural History Museum. Those whales are getting pretty intimate ...
Ahhh, my bedroom floor is currently occupied by mum's creations. Doing a favour for her, pretty exciting.
