Month: December 2011
Today I visited the Natural History Museum to see ‘Veolia Environnement Wildlife Photographer of the year’ I really enjoyed looking around this exhibition, although photography is an area of art which I have little knowledge about.
I was hugely inspired just from the visual impact of the photo’s, how well the concepts had been executed and the techniques employed! My overall favourite piece was captured by Daniel Beltrá, of a temporary bird rescue facility in Fort Jackson, His shocking image made a beautiful, striking art piece out of an environmental disaster which I feel draws awareness to this serious issue!
This 1960’s print was my initial inspiration for my trademark “Space Dolly” I was just searching online for some products with the “Rocket Rascal” print on, I think these are winners:
I’ve recently had some old favourites scanned at the printers (down from A1) to make them available as greeting cards and fashion prints, enjoy……………….
I came across the work of Sena Gu in the display cabinets in Canary Wharf Shopping centre, her crockery has a clean, minimalist look, intricate detailing using one colour in a specific area which makes it stand out against the rest of the piece which is white. These are on my Xmas wish list!
I was lucky to be offered an opportunity to help out on the last day of the Sustainable Angle’s Future Fabrics Expo at the London College of Fashion (Nov 29th-30th).
A wonderfully interesting day, the expo was buzzing with buyers, industry professional’s aswell as students. It certainly made me reflect upon the bigger picture and the environmental impact of design. It is is everyone’s responsibility and when sourcing fabrics I would recommend starting from here.
Last Week I entered one of Amelia Magazine’s callouts on Twitter for Illustrations of X-Factor stars 2011, I just had to draw Amelia Lily, I love the fantastic mauve and white tones in her hair.
When looking for inspiration for my Fashion Dolls, I often look in ‘Fruits’, Japanese fashion and styling is so edgy!
