A growing confidence

Sunday, 23 July 2017

Well... I opened my Instagram last Friday morning and found it had gone crazy overnight. My submission to the Draw a Dot Instagram Open Call had been picked as a favourite by Marcus Kan, the curator of the site.

Finding my style

Thursday, 13 July 2017

Today is the day that the Draw a Dot. Instagram Open Call results are announced, so I can finally share the image I submitted. If you'd like to see the full scan, it's on my Instagram.

The illustration had to be an interpretation of an outfit from the Miu Miu S/S 2017 collection. I took a look at the photos and instantly loved the vintage style. Even though I had no idea how I was going to approach this, I knew I had to try.

the beauty of simple things

First of all, I have a confession to make - I deleted my last post about why I love fashion illustration. It just felt all wrong, it didn't say nearly enough about why I do what I do, but most of all giving myself a label defined me in a way I wasn't comfortable with.

The whole thing about giving my art a label and defining myself in the context of that huge world that is fashion... well, it made me rather miserable, to be honest.

Deleting that post made me a lot happier and, as a result, I've been a lot more productive. My creative energy is flowing freely again, so I know it was the right thing to do.

An Epiphany

I had one of those days yesterday. You know the sort, when even the simplest of tasks turns into a fiasco and by the end of the day you feel a complete and utter failure - at everything.

Meet Tom...

I thought it was about time to properly introduce you to my partner, Tom, seeing as I mention him so often in my posts. It's going to be difficult not to be gushy about this man as I am so in awe of his many wonderful qualities and talent, but you'll soon find out why I feel this way about him.
