I’ve been making visits to Brick lane and researching imagery to inspire the development of my ‘London Fashion Doll’ collection.
Most of the architecture used in the collection so far are modern builds (apart from ‘Big Ben’), so I’m thinking it would be an interesting contrast if the next drawings show some classic buildings.
One thing which inspires me about East London so much is the contrast of modern, cutting edge architecture next to charming older buildings and the fact it’s merely a 10 minute walk from the diverse, Avante Garde Brick Lane to the Business District which is Bank, so the styles from both areas change dramatically!
My Fashion dolls show a cutting edge mix of vintage mixed with contemporary, cutting edge attire to show the strong styles and changes within this area.
I’m going to get some more A3 Prints (Ltd Edition 50 of each with Certificate of Authenticity) made up this week :
I had an interview for The ‘Wharf’ Newspaper on my work, which was published on Thursday :
In May I shall be exhibiting my work at ‘The Idea Store’ (Canary Wharf branch) and with the 2012 Olympics being hosted in East London I felt this would be a fitting theme.
I am going to use vintage pin-up girls as my main source of inspiration, aiming to create a collection of Fashion Illustrations with these ladies very elegantly playing sports (in a teasing Pin-Up girl manner).
These images have sparked my imagination!
