Can you see the resemblance?
One of the Artworks which sold at my solo show was ‘Mini Mouse and Cat’….
Last week talented comic book Artist and founder of Cereal Geek James Eatock (whom is also a dear friend of mine) presented me with his version of my Illustration for my Birthday gift and it transpired that it was him who’d bought my original drawing….
such an interesting take in two very different styles….I love it!
James named it: “Dandy Cat & Magenta Mouse”
Last year I featured the work of the talented local Illustrative artist Veronica Rowlands, her series of pictures entitled London Fashion Dolls and Surreal Doll Collection takes familiar and nostalgic dolls and transforms into something more surreal and fantastic .
Over the next few weeks, Veronica will be holding an exhibition that will feature her fashion dolls but also her more recent ‘Interactive Wallpaper’ which has been created with members of the public across the city.

Sometimes I forget this….shop in certain places as I love the clothes and they’re affordable (fast fashion) but then feel sad when i think of the reason they’ve been made so cheaply. I also adore Illustrating Fashion and exploring the craftsmanship behind these couture and high end labels…so I’m torn! My dolls fit this image perfectly, aesthetic and sweet but real they’re not.

First things first – we’re the realest (as Iggy Azalea taught us) – we’d like to thank each and everyone of you who took time to come to our Swedish Film Festival.
