English Country Garden

More flowers...all drawings by me...

Floral Fancies

I have been getting really into florals lately. These are all watercolour paintings that I have played around with on photoshop. Some have worked better than others. I love the pansy dress.
All designs are my own. Images are from ASOS.

Tropical Zebra

So it has been nearly a year since I posted anything on the blog. Its been a busy year of travelling Australia and its nearly over. The final stop is Perth, WA. It has been nice to been able to concentrate on colouring without any distractions and even better to be able to play on Photoshop again!!
This zebra print is really fun and was a nice way of easing me back into designing some prints. Which I am SO excited about doing when I get home in July.

Surfboard Decorating

Did some flower drawings on my housemate's surfboard recently. Was really nice to get back into some drawing. Love the flowers, almost makes me want to start surfing...! One day I WILL learn!

Car Print Brief

These are some of the designs that I have been working on for a brief based on vintage cars. It is for menswear so I have done some mock ups of how the prints might look on clothing. I am suprised at how much I am enjoying this style which isnt what I normally do.

Car Brief

I have been given a brief to design some prints using old car engines as inspiration. Im finding it quite hard as I dont normally do shapes and more abstract styles, I prefer to do things but Im giving it a go. I wasnt very happy with them until I photographed the drawings and now I can see how they potentially could work as prints and in patterns. Will update the progress of this soon!

 Have been really bad with drawing and design over the summer but am trying to get back into it! I've wanted to do a project on dinosaurs for ages now...think i have a bit of a penchant for deadly, human-eating animals and creatures!! These are only quick drawings and unfinished at the moment. Hopefully they will inspire me to keep going with drawing!!

Maarten Van Der Horst SS13

I love MVDHorst and have been excited for his new collection at Fashion East in LFW for a while now and it definately did not disappoint!! I know it is just coincidence but Im going to pretend that the fact he has used bats AND sharks covered in swarovski diamantes in his prints is fate that I am supposed to be working for him!! I looooove this collection its so beautiful and love how he has played with old classics and made them new and exciting like the trench coat. Also who else can make tesco bags cool on a shirt suit??? Way too much love for this!
